Any ideas on specie? Recently noticed one of those at home and friend of mine said that this one is caught in a different place in Vilnius. It's sort of domestic and size is about 3 cm. Thanks.

Yes they are a pest species, but you can keep any cockroach species as a pet if you REALLY wanted too just as long as they wont escape.
