1. Cockroaches carry pathogens of disease Over 30 species of bacteria have been found on the cuticle and in the gut of roaches, including those of serious medical importance such as E. coli, various strains of Salmonella and Staphylococcus. Cockroaches were also suspected to be the cause of a hepatitis A outbreak in a Los Angeles housing project in the late 1950s.
Though it’s difficult to say what part roaches play in small disease outbreaks, they are capable of harboring antibiotic-resistant bacteria. A 2012 study in Ethiopia looked at cockroaches trapped in a neonatal intensive care unit and found widespread multi-drug resistance among individual species of bacteria residing in the roaches.
2. Cockroaches Feast on anything that can fit into their mouth Even their perished brethren, and they have a sweet tooth and like to eat sugary and starchy things, like desserts, cardboard and book binding glue. Included in their fairly varied eating habit is their love of human garbage.
These unusual dietary preferences lead to their ruining food and contaminating food preparation surfaces. And they affect human well-being in three ways: a) their nasty eating habits, dining on both human excrement and human foods; b) their aimless poop habits; and c) their talent for spewing digestive liquids as they eat! Really disgusting, right?
3. They are Really Hard to Kill The old “truism” that the only creature that will survive WW3 is the cockroach has a certain element of truth to it. The cockroach will probably never be completely eradicated – there are just too many of them – but they can be easily controlled with a regular system of pest control.
As you can see, the cockroach is a master of concealment and can survive on almost anything from the hair on your head and skin cells to the glue that binds books.
