Cockroaches & cockroaches

Cockroaches, also popularly called cockroaches, are usually one of the most disgusting insect species. Cockroaches can transmit a wide variety of diseases to humans. For example, cockroach droppings can cause asthma and eczema. Children, senior citizens and sick people are particularly at risk from cockroaches.

A large number of cockroach species from the Blattidae family are commonly referred to as cockroaches or cockroaches. This is because cockroaches are attracted to human habitation and also fall under the storage pests.

Cockroach infestation does not arise due to poor hygiene or cleanliness, but cockroaches are usually brought into the house via food packaging, used kitchen appliances or with holiday luggage.

The living conditions for a cockroach in houses and apartments are almost ideal: Central heating ensures comfortable temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius. In addition, kitchen waste, leftover food and water in the kitchen give the cockroaches an almost paradisiacal state.

  • Do cockroaches bite people?
  • The short answer is, yes, they can bite humans too, but very rarely do. The common cockroaches are omnivores, which means they eat almost anything with organic matter. This includes fruit, vegetables, meat from dead animals and their conspecifics, faeces of all origins, cardboard, paper, glue and leather.
  • If a cockroach can eat leather, it can also bite through human skin. In 2015, researchers from Cambridge University, Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the University of Stuttgart measured an American cockroach’s bite force. They found that its bite was vital for its size. The force was comparable to that of predatory beetles and was around 50 Newtons / cm².
  • Roaches do not actively try to bite people, such as blood-sucking mosquitoes, bed bugs, and fleas. Therefore, you are more likely to flee any encounter with a much larger living being like humans to avoid injury. However, they are opportunistic eaters, and there are a few instances where they have bitten people asleep. However, this is only likely if the infestation is severe.
