Cockroaches are probably one of the major household pests in Australia. They are recognised by health authorities as a significant carrier of disease which affect humans. Their droppings are known to contaminate food and cause allergies and asthma attacks. They are also recognised as playing a significant part in Salmonella poisoning.
They are truly disgusting insects, they will eat anything including their own droppings and each other. They feed by vomiting up pre-digestive juices onto their food to soften it before feeding.
