Description

The Asian Cockroach looks similar in color and size to the more common German cockroach, but its wings are longer and it is able to fly. It prefers to live outdoors and will nest under dead leaves in large groups at various stages of development.

The Asian cockroach is most active at night. It is attracted to light and will fly toward lights in search of food. Once it has landed it will enter a dwelling in search of food. It may stay indoors if food is available and humidity is to its liking but usually it returns to its outdoor habitat.

Asian cockroach (Blattella asahinai) is most commonly found in Southeast Asia. However, the Asian cockroach has spread significantly and is now known to infiltrate houses worldwide. First documented in the United States in the 1980s, the Asian cockroach has since spread through most of the Southeastern United States. Like other species, the Asian cockroach is omnivorous and feeds on any available food source.
