Cockroaches are known for their ability to survive for long periods without food and water, making them resilient pests.
Some species, such as the American cockroach, are attracted to sugary foods and are often found in areas with spilled soda or other sweet liquids.
German cockroaches, on the other hand, are attracted to starchy foods and are commonly found in areas with crumbs or food particles, such as on countertops or in appliances.
Additionally, some species of roaches, such as the brown-banded cockroach, are known to eat materials such as books, wallpaper, and clothing, making them a potential threat to personal belongings.
While roaches are generally considered a nuisance, they can also pose health risks as they are known to carry bacteria and pathogens that can cause illness. Regular cleaning and sanitation practices can help to prevent roach infestations and reduce the risks associated with these pests.
