Female German Cockroach with Ootheca

Dear Jessica,
This is a female German Cockroach and she is dragging around her ootheca or egg case.  According to BugGuide:  “Nocturnal; major pest of residential and commercial structures. Some people can develop severe allergies to cockroach parts, feces, and oils.  Females carry the ootheca for up to a month, dropping it just before the eggs hatch.”
