Brownbanded Cockroaches:

This cockroach is very small and can often infest inside buildings. Unlike German cockroach that infests kitchens and food handling areas, the Brownbanded cockroach will infest all areas of a building.

They have wings and can fly. They are often pale brown in colour with two brown banded across their wings.  They prefer to eat starchy foods, which is why they can often be found in offices and other place that store paper.
