Denizens of the invisible empire


There are many types of cockroaches, but the ones everyone knows and hates are the ones which invade humans' homes, where they are a serious pest. These creatures are very active, usually at night, and are able to eat almost anything. They are capable of spreading dirt and diseases. They leave behind foul-smelling pheromones wherever they go. They may be as important as dust mites in triggering allergic reactions in people. Unfortunately, I can't think of much really good to say about cockroaches. Except that their physiology is useful for scientists to study, and "Joe's Apartment" is a really cool, funny movie! Go rent it - if you have the stomach for it!
