Asian cockroaches are a relatively common cockroach species you might find in your home but you do not have to worry about them actively infiltrating your space. These insects prefer to live outdoors and will only come indoors if they are attracted to something. If there is a large population of Asian roaches in your yard, you may end up with more inside your home. These roaches look identical to German roaches but their habits are completely different. They can be easily differentiated because German roaches do not fly. Although it is unpleasant to find an Asian cockroach in your home, they are not particularly hazardous. In order to eliminate these insects, it is necessary to focus on prevention methods on the exterior of your home.
