Asian Roach

(Blattella asahinai)

Appearance

Asian roaches are almost identical in appearance to German roaches. The main differences between the Asian and German cockroaches are: The wings of the Asian cockroach are usually longer and narrower than those of the German cockroach and Asian cockroaches are lighter in color than most German cockroaches.

Size

Ranges from -inch to 5/8-inch in length.

Behavior

Asian cockroaches are strong fliers, and are both a feral (wild) and periodomestic species. Adults take flight even during the day if disturbed, and are easily seen in infested lawns (because their flight is similar to that of moths and leafhoppers). At dusk it is common to see a flurry of Asian roach activity.

Habitat

Asian roaches are abundant in shaded areas with leaf litter or where there is ground cover. In feral habitats, the Asian cockroach is found in shaded areas of pastures, along shaded road sides in leaf mulch, in shaded areas of thick grass, and in ground cover of abandoned citrus groves. The adults have been found feeding on the honeydew from aphids and on flowers during the night.

Interesting Facts

The Asian cockroach is a rural and suburban pest, and will infest both homes and yards. It is abundant outdoors, where populations of 30,000 to 250,000 per acre have been found.

Someone captured footage recently of an ant colony working together to haul off an enormous dinner. Some ants crawl under and support the meal, while others form a chain to pull it away. Together, the ants are able to move s...
