Just How Creepy are Cockroaches?

Cockroaches Can And Will Eat Everything

They might not be the smartest creatures on the planet, and most common household pests, but they sure are good at surviving. Cockroaches will eat anything they can get their hands (or mouthparts) on. That includes food scraps, garbage, and even feces. This is one of the reasons why they're so difficult to get rid of. Even if you think you've eliminated all the food sources they have access to, they can still find something else to eat.

Cockroaches Are Fast And Agile

Cockroaches are extremely fast; they can move up to 3 miles per hour. They're also very agile. They can squeeze through tiny cracks and crevices that you wouldn't even think were possible.

Roaches Don't Need Their Head to Survive

These creatures can survive without their head for up to a week because they simply don't need their heads to survive. Cockroaches breathe from their sides, and they can go weeks without food. Also, they don't bleed so if you cut off a cockroach's head, its body will continue to move for a while before finally dying.

Cockroaches Can Hold Their Breathe For Up To 40 Minutes

Cockroaches can hold their breath for up to 40 minutes. This is another adaptation that helps them survive in extreme environments. If you are planning on drowning your cockroach infestation away then you might want to think again because cockroaches can survive underwater for extended period of time.

Cockroaches are Really Old

The cockroach species is one of the oldest groups of insects. They've been around for over 200 million years, that means that they were around long before the great dinosaurs.

It is found in a wide variety of habitats, from homes and apartment buildings to restaurants and other commercial businesses. The German cockroach is a small, light-brown insect that is typically about half an inch long. It has two dark stripes on its back, which run from its head to its abdomen. The German cockroach is particularly attracted to food sources, such as kitchens and pantries. It is also attracted to warm, moist areas, such as bathrooms and laundry rooms. German cockroaches are capable of reproducing rapidly, and their populations can explode if left unchecked. In addition, German cockroaches can carry a variety of diseases, making them a serious health hazard.

The American cockroach is one of the most commonly found cockroaches in the world. It is also one of the largest, with adults reaching up to 2 inches in length. The American cockroach is dark brown or reddish brown in color, with a light colored band running around its body just behind its head. These cockroaches are primarily scavengers and are often found near sources of food, such as garbage cans or food preparation areas. While they do not typically pose a health threat to humans, they can carry diseases and contaminate food. Although American cockroach bite, they rarely do. If bite occurs, it is not as dangerous but may cause an allergic reaction in some people.

“Forterra folks and service was amazing. The ease at which I could sign up, schedule and access my account is great. Jason and his crew were right on time, didn't make a mess in my yard, and sent me a text right after explaining exactly what they did. Highly recommended.”
Todd Huntstman
“Definitely Recommend!! They explained everything on the phone and showed up the next day and serviced my home and yard to perfection. They even gave me an extra treatment around my shed. It’s been 3 weeks now, haven’t seen any ants or wasps or critters. Will edit my review if I see something in the future. Overall 10+”
