The scientific name of the cockroach is Periplaneta americana.

The scientific name of any organism is taken together with the name of its genus and species.

Cockroaches are omnivores and are nocturnal.

Periplaneta is a fast-running animal.

Adult or young cockroaches are about 2 to 4 cm in length and about 1 cm in width.
