Can survive a week without its head.
Can survive 2weeks without water.
Can survive one month without food
Defecates on human food.
Can trigger severe asthma attack.
Spreads bacteria that can cause food poisoning and typhoid.
A cockroach can kill you.
If you don’t kill it first.
These things are capable of the worst things you can imagine.
They eat almost anything even fellow insects.
Hair, books, sweets, meat anything- they will eat.
They are attracted to human food.
They vomit on the food.
They defecate on the food.
Absolutely disgusting animals.
Some young cockroaches have been documented to crawl over sleeping human beings and crawl inside the ears, noses, and even open mouths.
So if you have cockroaches in your house and you sleep sometimes with your mouth open and drooling, a cockroach can scroll in for a kiss.
Especially if it is a baby, or if it’s a person who is too old, too young, or too sick to brush them away.
This has been seen in cases of neglect, abuse and abject poverty.
So you may just walk into a house with a bedridden person and find cockroaches in their mouth.
Cockroaches have been known to spread at least 33 kinds of bacteria, including E. coli and Salmonella, six parasitic worms and more than seven other types of human pathogens.
They have been implicated in poliomyelitis.
E. coli and Salmonella for example are classic causes of serious food poisoning, typhoid and diarrhea.
So what to do?
Prevent the environment that helps them thrive. That’s the main answer.
Keep your cupboards, sinks, tables and floors clean and free of dirty plates, unused utensils and old newspapers.
Clean your dishes, food crumbs and oil spills right away once you cook.
Always store your food in airtight containers, and never leave your food out (even if it is pet food!).
Storing up food in nylon bags and sacks like garri and rice is NOT the best for you.
These idiots can eat through the sack and ruin that food for you.
Don’t risk it at all.
Seal cracks and gaps in walls, floors and openings around or inside cabinets.
Also make sure that you seal gaps around pipes, plumbing, wall outlets, and spaces under the doors to your house and kitchen.
From time to time, run hot water in spare bathrooms and little used sinks.
Always check your bag and your children’s school bags when they return home, as well as your shopping items before storing them.
If despite all these measures, you still have a cockroach problem at home, contact a pest professional for assistance with elimination and prevention.
Smack with a broom.
Squash with slippers.
Boil in hot water.
Spray with an insecticide.
Kill with a gun.
Use whatever means you can.
But don’t ever ignore.
One cockroach can produce up to 1,000 new ones in a year to torment your life.
Kill cockroaches now
Before they kill you.
And for those who may not know.
I forgot to add these things (especially the ones in Nigeria) will go into soakaway full of shit and feces, rub it on their bodies then come out through the pipes and sink to enter kitchen/cupboards and walk all over your food with all that shit.
Some of you see a housefly and it disgusts you?
Cockroaches are worse.
They are more active at night, they thrive better in dark dirty moist smelling places- and then carry all of the germs, dirt, shit, faeces they pick up in their unfortunate trips and put it all in your food.
These things can literally survive a nuclear bomb attack.
Some scientists believe they existed even before dinosaurs.
That’s how resilient and terrible they are.
If you don’t kill cockroaches, they will only multiply, torment your family and give you diseases year in year out.
These disgusting things are known to eat human flesh- both living and dead.
While you are sleeping in a dark room, they can bite your eyelashes, your feet, your hands, scratch your body, eat your open wounds and even feed on a dead human corpse.
Completely irritating creatures.
And when you catch one in your toilet bowl, don’t just flush- it’s a waste of time.
They survive under water and flushing them to a soakaway is like sending them for a baecation.
What you do is spray with insecticide, smash with a shoe and ensure it is dead dead dead- that’s it.
