                                                                 The Australian Cockroach is brown overall with sharply contrasting pale or yellow margins and grows to a length of

                                                                 between 25 - 35mm.  It enters buildings at night from garden beds and debris.  

                                                                 They are generally prevalent in areas where winters are relatively mild and despite its name, it is not a native species.

                                                                 It is a very mobile cockroach and its wings allow it to be quite a capable flier.
