Did you know that a roach can live a week without a head? It dies after a week due to lack of water. Here are some more interesting facts about roaches.

  • It's hard to sneak up on a roach. They have one great big nerve connecting their tails to their heads, alerting them to danger from behind.
  • Roaches have faster reflexes than humans.
  • Roaches can swim and hold their breath for 40 minutes.
  • They recognize family and friends by their distinctive odors.
  • Male cockroaches weigh less than female cockroaches, and males can fly and flee faster.
  • Crushed cockroaches can be applied to a stinging wound to help relieve the pain.
  • Cockroaches can climb walls because they are equipped with a set of little claws on their feet designed for that very purpose.
