I found a HUGE bug in my cat's litter box. I think it was a roach but not sure.
It had orange on its body, didn't fly. It looked like a roach but aren't roaches black/brown all over their bodies? This thing had orange on it but also black/brown. I thought I cleaned my cat's box but I guess this bug must've smelled something it liked. It also had antennas. I've seen roaches before but this thing was one of the biggest I've ever seen! I killed it by spraying it with the first thing I could find and the closest to where I was and that was a bathroom cleaner. I think I suffocated it because it finally succumbed.
To be able to assist you better, we need to know exactly what we are dealing with. The bug your describing resembles so many different insect species. Is there any way you could take a picture and email it to us?
