The Oriental Cockroach, also known as Black Beetle, is found mainly indoors in heated buildings like hospitals, hotels, restaurants, and blocks of flats. It is dark, shiny brown to black in colour, with long flexible antennae and a flattened body. Cockroaches can carry germs of such diseases as dysentery, gastro-enteritis, and typhoid. Contamination occurs when the cockroaches come into contact with our foodstuffs.
