Any homeowner or business owner does not want a cockroach infestation on their property. They spread a slew of germs and bacteria and are simply pests to contend with! Cockroaches, on the other hand, are fascinating tiny insects (when they’re not in your house!). Here are some fascinating facts about cockroaches:
Asthma is exacerbated by cockroaches.
Several studies have shown that cockroaches can definitely cause asthma and other allergies. Cockroaches possess a protein that is known to cause allergies in many people. This specific protein is what causes asthma attacks.
Cockroaches can live without their heads for a week.
Isn’t it amazing? Cockroaches have an open circulatory system and breathe through microscopic holes in their body segments, implying that they do not rely on their head or mouth to breathe. The only reason the cockroach dies is because it is thirsty!
Cockroaches move quickly.
This may seem apparent, but we all know how fast they are, especially when you want to get rid of one! Cockroaches are extremely fast, reaching speeds of 1.5 metres per second. They are tiny, lightning-quick insects!
