When it comes to fun, there is an insect that would love to come into your home and enjoy some year round delights too, of course, we are talking about the cockroach.
Hide the hops
It is commonly known that cockroaches love the kitchen. They love anything edible but they show a special attraction to sugar. However, it has been found that the American cockroach loves alcoholic beverages, especially beer. The combination of hops and sugar is especially delicious and they will scurry into garbage cans, lured by the scent of lingering drops in bottles and containers just to satisfy their drinking problem. Any food is free game to a cockroach though, they just want sustenance, and if a morsel is accessible, they show no control and devour it.
Hard to kill
Cockroaches are difficult to kill. Not only can they infiltrate every cranny and crevice in the house to hide during a do-it-yourself extermination attempt, they have adapted ways of surviving the most brutal situations. Want to drown them? They can hold their breath for up to 40 minutes. Want to cut off their heads? They can live as long as 7 days without a head since they breath through holes in their body segments. Chase them down with chemicals? Even a 1 day old baby cockroach, which is the size of a speck of dust, can run almost as fast as its adult parents.
