Blattella asahinai Mizukubo, 1981 - (Asian cockroach)
The species is an urban pest native to Asia which has spread to south-eastern North America (first record 1986).

The cockroach lives in peridomestic environments and enters residential or commercial houses. Outdoors it lives and overwinters in leaf litter where it feeds on plant debris, dead insects and other organic matter. The adults are about 1½ cm long and are good fliers. They resemble Blattella germanica.
