The Cuban cockroach is an outdoor species and is known to infest banana trees, which is where they get the nickname “banana cockroach” from. This roach does not normally invade homes and is not considered an indoor pest. When they do enter homes, however, Cuban cockroaches are commonly brought indoors on bananas.
Over 4,000 species exist worldwide, with one species or another either creeping around in your basement, flying right at you, dropping on you from trees and ceilings in the dark of night or others scattering in throngs of thousands, when caught invading your kitchen, cockroaches are one of our most terrifying pests.
With Halloween just around the corner, its time for larger-than-life creepy, crawly creatures skittering across lawns, lurking in dark alleyways and dropping out of nowhere to frighten their hapless victims.
