The cockroach is one of the most hated and lambasted creatures on the planet. It’s not the most attractive creature and people seem to fear it more than anyone else. Perhaps it’s because they are one of the few things that would thrive after a meteor strike or a Nuclear conflict (which isn’t true). They are fast and tough but if you have an infestation with them just call a Pest Control Harlow company like https://www.bpcpestcontrol.co.uk/pest-control-essex/pest-control-harlow/ and they will get rid of them for you. Let’s learn a little bit more about these creatures.

  1. They date back about three hundred and twenty million years. The cockroach is one of the longest living creatures on Earth. This means they are pretty good and adapting and surviving. The belief is that they are related to the praying mantis.

  1. They are not always small. For example, there are cockroaches in Australia that can reach up to 10 centimetres in length. You’ll soon see them running across the carpet!
  2. Cockroaches need social interaction. Studies have shown that cockroaches. Like humans need to be around others. If they don’t they start to feel sad and get ill.
  3. They can run on two legs, and just be as fast as if they were on six!
  4. Cockroaches conceived in space are stronger and faster than Earthbound ones. Not only that, they are bigger than the ones on earth as well. Something about zero gravity agrees with them.
