Facts related to Cockroaches

Cockroaches can live for a week without its head. After the head of a cockroach is cut off, clotting will seal off the neck and prevent blood loss. The brain of a cockroach is not responsible for breathing and neither is the blood responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body. The cockroaches have something called spiracles. These are little holes in their bodies which are present in almost every segment of the body. The spiracle pipes are responsible for sending air directly to the tissues using tubes which are known as the tracheae. A cockroach can hold its breath for 40 minutes, and can even survive being submerged under water for half an hour. They hold their breath often to help regulate their loss of water. They are cold blooded animals. This means that they can maintain a low rate of metabolism and hence, can survive without food even for a month. But they can’t stay thirsty. Most cockroaches die of thirst and in general cockroaches can stay without water for a maximum period of about 2 weeks. Cockroaches can run up to three miles in an hour, which means they can spread germs and bacteria throughout a home very quickly.
