New Cockroach-6

In this Jan. 9, 2013 photo provided by the University of Florida, the female Periplaneta japonica is shown. The Periplaneta japonica is new strain of cockroach that is hardy enough to withstand harsh winter cold. It has never been found in the United States before, but it has invaded New York City. Scientists believe that it's too early to tell, but but they believe there is probably little cause for concern. (AP Photo/University of Florida)
