These insects display a rich brown colour accented by two light brown stripes. You can distinguish females from males because of their deeper brown colouration. Generally, adult, brown-banded roaches range from ⅜ to ½ inch.
Male cockroaches have fully developed wings that extend beyond the pointed tip of their abdomen. At the same time, females have underdeveloped wings that prevent them from flying. These cockroaches have oval-shaped bodies. They have six legs and two antennae.
