Cockroaches are insects of the order Blattodea. About 30 species of 4,600 are associated with human habits. About four species are well known for pests. Cockroaches are an ancient group, dating back at least as far as some 320 million years ago. Most species are about the size of a thumbnail, but several species are bigger. The world’s heaviest cockroach is the Australian giant burrowing cockroach, which can reach 9cm (3.5 in) in length and weigh more than 30g.
Some of the confusions that people have about the cockroaches are given along with their solutions in this blog:
When we stomp a roach, it skitters away unscathed or disappears in a small crack, why doesn’t it get injured?
Scientists have figured out how they do that, and the results are terrifying. The American cockroach can squeeze through a crack the height of two stacked pennies in about a second. Not only can roaches fit through tight spaces by flattening their flexible exoskeleton and splaying their legs to the side, the researchers found, they can keep running nearly as fast while squished.
Waking up in the middle of the night, going to kitchen for a glass of water and seeing a nightmare with open eyes, that is, seeing roaches crawling all over your kitchen floor can be devastating! So the question here arrives is that do cockroaches see in the dark?
Yes is the answer. Cockroaches accumulate light to see in the dark. Including this fact, there are some super powers that these creepy creatures have, making them a superhero. Some species can hold their breath for as long as 40 minutes. Others can survive blasts of strong radiation, subsist on paper and dried glue, or live for weeks without a head.
These amazing features are so cool but after all roaches will be roaches. They will keep irritating humans and spreading various diseases.
Speaking of diseases, roaches can carry some serious diseases. Salmonella Typhi, which causes Typhoid, has been found in cockroaches. Poliomyelitis, which causes Polio, has also been found in these insects. They can also cause Dysentery, a disease that causes severe diarrhea that may include bleeding.
