Cockroaches or roaches are belonging to order Blattodea, 450 species out of 4600 species are found in Australia and 4 of which are considered famous pests.

These dirty pests live and stay in warmer places, but can survive in cold temperature up to -122 degrees Celsius. 

 Did you know that the heaviest cockroach in the world is in Australia?

Yes, it is Australian Giant Burrowing Cockroach, with 3 ½ inches in length and can weigh up more than 1oz, these are usually found in Queensland, Australia, some parts of tropical and subtropical. 


One of the interesting facts about cockroaches is they can still run and move for several weeks even without their heads since their heads are not quite important to them and continue to respond even without it.

So don’t be surprised if you see cockroaches still roaming around on the floor after you smash the heads. 


Another interesting fact is that cockroaches are mostly outgoing and expressive; they are also social insects like ants.

Like German cockroach which usually leaves fecal trails with
distinct odor for other cockroaches to easily find and follow those trails for their sources of food.

That is how the way they help and interact with each
other, especially if there are enemies and they need to hide.

Most cockroaches are nocturnal, they tend to keep hiding in the morning and sneak around during night-time.

This is the reason why we found cockroaches and their feces in
different areas of our kitchen in the morning when we wake up. 


Cockroaches can hold their breath so long even without lungs, they breathe through tracheae.

If you use insecticides or try to put them into the water or remove their heads, they can still manage to survive in several minutes.

Cockroaches hold their breath to stop water loss and when they need oxygen.

That is breathtakingly amazing!

While there are so many interesting facts about roaches’ physiological and behavioral aspects, there are lots of danger cockroaches may bring to humans.

These facts must be used to help the pest controllers to capture and manage them easily.

 Like the German cockroach, though small in size, is often associated with many illnesses and plagues which cause serious problems to human health. 

Many allergic reactions are caused by cockroaches and life-threatening diseases such as dysentery, leprosy,typhoid fever, salmonellosis, and cholera, to name a few.
