Bug of the Day

Ok, here you go, the THREE PEOPLE who think roaches are cool ;-).

This is a Dusky Cockroach, Ectobius lapponicus, that I found on the side of my house earlier this summer. Looked a bit too much like a house-infesting German cockroach for my liking - feh - but it turned out to be a European introduction we see now in the northeastern US and Canada.
