Domestic cockroaches have become so familiar guests in the dwelling of man that many are not even surprised when they meet them, for example, in the kitchen. However, few people know that there are many types of domestic cockroaches, and they are quite different from each other. And if you meet at home not the usual Prusak, and, for example, a large black cockroach, then some particularly impressionable owners can really get scared.
Long ago, in Russia, large black cockroaches ruled in their homes, considered to be a sign of prosperity and well-being in the house. Although today they were almost crowded out by the red-haired fellows, no, no, yes, and somewhere a black cockroach will meet. Let's find out what these insects are and what to expect from them.
Among the many cockroaches found in the home, Madagascar hissing cockroaches are best known.They are shown in films and clips as terrible huge insects, designed to shock their size and appearance. But in fact, they are very friendly and peaceful creatures, which, with proper care, can be excellent pets.
The most famous and least favorite domestic insect - the red cockroach - is known primarily as an unwanted guest in the apartment and a consumer of various food debris around the bin and on the table. And how often the Prussians catch the eye of an ordinary resident of a city apartment, so many questions arise about these pests. In order to confidently and quickly get rid of the kitchen invaders, it is necessary to get to know them better.
Few people know that in addition to the usual red cockroaches there are a large number of other species of these insects. This black cockroaches, and American, as well as Madagascar hissing cockroaches, chess cockroaches, cockroaches, rhinos and many others. We offer to see photos of some of them ...
American cockroaches have long expanded their natural habitat, moving to human habitation. Here it is warm, there is water and food, and significantly fewer natural biological enemies. One can even say that cockroaches feel much better and more comfortable in an apartment than in their natural habitat.
Over the many millions of years of evolution, cockroaches have managed to adapt to a huge variety of living conditions. This group of insects has reached the greatest species richness in the tropics, where more than 4500 species live, differing both in size and appearance, and in the peculiarities of reproduction and in general way of life.
Almost all cockroaches are relatively harmless to humans (except for the infections they carry), they mostly do not bite,They have no poisonous glands and can only frighten by hissing or their terrible appearance. Although, some particularly impressionable ladies, even the look of a common pruser can plunge into shock.
Several species of so-called domestic cockroaches inhabit the human home. The most common among them is the red cockroach, or prusak - small, but very mobile and rapidly breeding insect. It is from him that apartments and houses that are not in the most perfect sanitary condition suffer the most.
At one time, red-headed cockroaches almost everywhere displaced black cockroaches from a human dwelling - larger and more terrible-looking, but at the same time less pests adapted to living in apartments. The black cockroach does not know how to crawl on the glass (with which the Prusac is very easy to handle), it reproduces slowly and is more picky about the temperature conditions. Moreover, females of black cockroaches lay capsules with eggs immediately after their formation, and the Prusians who live right there with pleasure eat these capsules. And the Prussians themselves carry their capsules (oothecs) on themselves and protect them until the progeny are derived from them.
Another common type of cockroach around the world is American, large, red and slim. In our country, it is not so familiar, because the cold winters are experiencing with difficulty.
But in lovers' terrariums there are various types of cockroaches - Madagascar, famous for their horns, hissing and participation in cockroach races, as well as Colombian (white with a black head), and incredibly beautiful banana cockroaches - lettuce-colored and capable of flying.
And in the wild nature of our country there are several unusual species of cockroaches. Among them is the Far Eastern relict cockroach, unique in its ability to breed without the participation of males and use even wood as food.
In terms of the diversity of species, cockroaches can only be compared with aquarium fish, and therefore it is very rash to consider all cockroaches to be similar to Prusaks.
