What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

firefly look alike
Hi,
I saw this guy crawling around a garden in Houston, Tx and could not identify him (or her). At first glance, I thought it was a firefly, but of course he isn’t. He moved pretty quickly and looks like a roach. He was about 3/4" long and wouldn’t stand still for a good picture. Thanks
Daniel

hi Daniel,
This is a Pale Bordered Field Cockroach, Pseudomops septentrionalis. It is an outdoor species that visits flowers and does not infest homes.
