cockroach infestation is probably one of the scariest experiences
that you can experience. Imagine hundreds of cockroaches, crawling
all over your kitchen floor, spread all over your leftover food
on the table, scourging around the empty dishes left in the
sink and creeping up and down the walls. Creepy thought isn't
it happens to millions of house owners all around the
world, and probably even to you. By keeping you informed of
what you're facing, you can be sure that it might also never
happen to your home.
you know that there are over 5,000 different species of cockroaches
in the world? Among them are the Megaloblatta longipennis,
which has a wingspan up to 18cm wide and the Macropanesthia
rhinoceros, which weighs in at 50 grams! Imagine having
those running around your house. And the chilling thing is that
they have been there, way before your house was even built.
They have existed for nearly 250 million years ago, and have
withstood everything that mother-nature and the galactic forces
could throw at them, and are extremely resistant to radiation.
And you thought that aerosol spray might kill cockroaches.
are omnivores, like us and for the most part they will eat anything
organic which are mostly dead or immobile. They rarely bite
a human but might nibble on a sore in the middle of the night

will even eat the glue off the back of postage stamps and the
glue bindings off the backs of books! This is because traditional
glue is derived from animal protein, and the cockroach loves
besides feeding like there's no tomorrow, is there anything
else that a cockroach does? Well, Cockroaches as a group are
part of the worldwide food web. Since they are omnivore scavengers,
they clean up our environment and help recycle the organic litter
that would accumulate if it were not decomposed by organisms
which include cockroaches. Furthermore cockroaches serve as
food for small mammals, birds, amphibians and lizards.
sound all that bad, right? Well how about if we told you that
cockroaches have been associated with the development of
childhood asthma and have been known to spread diseases in hospitals?
can't I get rid of cockroaches naturally you ask? Even as a
last resort, swatting them would be a waste of time because
even if you kill one, you might not kill off the entire cockroach
nest. Even insecticides can't help you that much because you
can only kill what you can see and also, some cockroaches have
grown immune to the effects of the insecticide! (Remember what
was said about their invulnerability to radiation?) So, how
CAN you kill them?
there you have it; the shocking revelations of cockroaches.
Therefore, before you pick up that can of aerosol or the swatter,
remember that what you kill today, will come back tomorrow.
