American Cockroach ( Nymph )

Periplaneta americana


About one fourth of an inch long. Two long, banded antennae. Six legs. Dark brown body. Light brown, and medium brown bands, running across the top of it's back.


I found this insect resting on the side of the kitchen sink, that is inside my house.


I found this insect resting on the side of the kitchen sink, at around 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon. It did not move, so I was able to take some photos of it. I'm not sure, but it might be some kind of cockroach?
