roacha.gifYou may be wondering why I have chosen to talk about cockroaches. Ever wanted to explore this lil creature who send creeps to many among you. Read to know why I’m talking about cockroaches on a TuesDay Morning at 8. 😦

I’ve kinda explore their world and these are what I found out:


  1. What color is the blood of a cockroach?

Cockroach female adult blood is occasionally orange. All other cockroach blood is colorless.

2. What are cockroaches good for?

Cockroaches as a group are part of the worldwide food web. They are omnivore scavengers which clean up our environment and help recycle the organic litter that would accumulate if it were not decomposed by organisms which include cockroaches. Furthermore they serve as food for small mammals, birds, amphibians and lizards. There are over 3000 species of cockroaches and only 10 species are on the World Health Organization list of human pests. The other 3000 species are welcome members of the biodiversity on this planet.

3. Do cockroaches sleep?

Yes, cockroaches do sleep, if you define it that way. Cockroaches have activity rhythms, i.e. regular times in the day when they are quiet and hide away from the rest of the world as well as wakeful times when they are active, seeking food, water and a mate. While we sleep they are active; while they sleep we are active.
How convenient!

4. Do cockroaches make sounds?

There is one genus of cockroach Gromphadorhina which is known for hissing. This hissing is loud enough to scare a dog. The hissing cockroach is one of the types commonly reared by cockroach fanciers

5. What do cockroaches eat?

Cockroaches are omnivores, like us. For the most part they will eat anything organic. Mostly they eat dead or immobile things. As indicated elesewhere in the FAQ, they rarely bite a human but might nibble on a sore in the middle of the night when an animal is sleeping.
They will eat the glue off the back of postage stamps and the glue bindings off the backs of books, traditional glue being derived from animal protein.

And finally

Do cockroaches bite?

The cockroach is an omnivore, that is, it eats everything edible, animal and vegetable. So if we do not move around too much while sleeping they might be inclined to nibble on our earlobes at night. They are rarely aggressive enough to attack us while we are awake. When visiting Tulane University in New Orleans many years ago I slept in a dormitory room and cockroaches were flying down from the ceiling onto my head. I would guess that these large American cockroaches, _Periplaneta americana_, would be capable of taking a good bite out of me. Only the larger species could take a bite through our skin. Of course the skin of children is much more tender and vulnerable to a roach bite.

Grrr…. some stupid cockroach has bitten me last night on my cheekz!! si m gagn li m pou massacrer li!! spoiled ma whole day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! got a swollen red cheeks..
