How Cockroach Feed Itself

Health,Environment,Family & Parenting
Cockroaches (often called roaches for short) are considered pests to humans. But what do cockroaches eat? This post will answer that question and also tell you a few interesting facts about cockroaches.

Cockroaches are usually omnivores, except the wood-eating genus Cryptocercus. They feed mostly on dead or immobile things. They prefer food sources such as sweets, cheese, meat products, starches and grease. They also feed on plants, vegetables and fruits. They eat almost any type of food, including household items such as leather, beer, glue, flakes of dried skin, starch in book bindings or decaying organic matter of animals or plants. Cockroaches also eat kitchen crumbs, paper, human dander, shelf paper backing, and much more.

Cockroaches can digest a wide variety of substances, as their digestive system consists of a variety of protozoa and bacteria. They are nocturnal feeders. They are quite active at night. During the daytime, they hide in the wall cavities, roof voids, sub-floors, crevices and cracks in the kitchen and bathroom. Cockroaches contaminate food and cause the spread of various diseases such as cholera, dysentery, tuberculosis, typhoid and leprosy. Hence, it is very important to keep your surroundings clean.

They will eat wallpaper paste, cheese, beer,leather, bakery products,hair, flakes of dried skin, soiled clothing ,starch in book binding paint, bookbindings, and paper.
