Asian Cockroach – Blattella asahinai (Mizukubo). The Asian roach looks identical to the German roach but the habitats in which it is found is usually the opposite of the German roach. It will be found outside in mulch and leaf litter around the outside of structures. When disturbed it readily flies from the ground up onto the building. Being attracted to lights, it may enter homes in the evening hours as residents begin to turn on lights and televisions where they will fly to such sources becoming a nuisance pest. Control measures will usually take place outside structures. Click here for a FREE pest control consultation or call 1-855-PEACHTREE (732-2487).
