The Gisborne or Native cockroach is the casual intruder whose natural home is in your garden but when it starts getting cold and wet, they will start to migrate. They are often found in the bathroom, lounge or bedroom. They are seen to be just sitting there up high on the wall or in the corner. The nymph (baby) is often confused with the German Cockroach but tend to have a rounder abdomen. The adult is large and black with white stripes either side. Pictured in the middle.

The American cockroach found its way to our country through the shipping industry. The climate here is a little cold for them, but they have managed to adapt none the less.

When it is hot enough, this Cockroach will fly.
