Question of the Week – Green Cuban Cockroach

Posted by romeethredge on December 31, 2015

 The word is that the Green Cuban Cockroach (Panchlora nivea) aka Green Banana Cockroach, first got to the US on shipments of fruit from the Caribbean. Like most cockroaches, it is nocturnal. It is a strong flyer and is drawn to bright lights at night. This species does not breed in houses and prefers to remain outdoors if possible. It reaches a maximum length of about 2″, usually about an inch long. The immature is dark brown.  I have not seen many here in South Georgia but this one, last week was in the bed of my truck.


This week’s question is about this structure that Daddy and I recently saw and can you tell me what it is and where is it?
