What Are Cockroaches?
Cockroaches (also known as roaches) are insects with six legs. They are from the order Blattodea, this also inclues termites. But cockroaches are not ants. They are a social insect that feeds off bread, fruit, starch, paper, glue and can also digest cellulose. Only thirty of the 4500 species are known to associate human habitats. Only about five of those thirty are known as pests. These insects are incredibly resilient and can survive in harsh conditions.
Cockroaches are also known for carrying bacteria than can contaminate your food and make you sick. Another good reason to remove them from your home.
Common Queensland Cockroach Species
