Disgusting, Dirty, and Here to Stay. 265 million years ago, cockroaches roamed the earth looking much the same as they do today. The fact that these creatures have changed so little in so many years show how successful they are. If cockroaches can endure the ravages of the dinosaur and ice ages, think how tough they are to get rid of now.
The Survival of the Fittest. Highly developed survival mechanisms enable cockroaches to live through practically anything.
Experts at hide-and-seek, cockroaches start running the minute they “feel” a word, step, or even a breath. Cerci, sensory projections located at the tip of the abdomen pick up stimulus, and the result is a lightning-fast response. The cockroaches quickly hide, their flat shape fitting easily into small cracks, crevices, and almost anywhere.
Whether they’re hiding or not, cockroaches can survive on minimal food and water. They will eat almost anything if it means staying alive, including wallpaper, dirty clothes and leather. In fact, some species can go up to 90 days on water alone, and 30 days with nothing at all.
Surprising enough, cockroaches are somewhat cautious when it comes to their diet. To sample food before actually eating it, taste hairs allow cockroaches to pick up taste sensations such as salt, sweet, or acid. For this reason, it is very difficult to poison cockroaches since they can usually detect the poison before they actually ingest it.
Even if you manage to kill off most of these annoying pest, their offspring will soon take over. In fact, if you eliminate 99% of a German Cockroach population, you’ll have to content with about 1.2 million more in only one year. Some species don’t even have to mate, and will produce only female offspring.
The Perpetual Problem. IN the process of feeling out their environment, cockroaches make their presence know in a variety of disgusting ways. Scent gland deposit an oily secretion usually left on dishes and counters. And a dark liquid regurgitated from their mouth while sampling food, ending up in your food. During these activities, cockroaches also transfer harmful bacteria responsible for typhoid fever, diarrhea, food poisoning-even bubonic plague-to name only a few.
