The Asian cockroach closely resembles the German cockroach, but their behaviors and habitats are different. Like the German variety, the Asian cockroach may track pathogens into your home and contaminate food and cooking surfaces. It’s important to properly identify them so that you can apply insecticides in the appropriate location. This publication explains the differences between these two common cockroaches and includes photographs of both species.
