The true death's head cockroach (Blaberus craniifer) is a cockroach, often confused with the discoid cockroach and is considered a display insect for entomologists and hobbyists due to its striking jack-o-lantern marking on its pronotum (the shield-like part above the head) and the black cloak-like marking on its wings. Care for these animals is quite minimal and little odour is associated with them. They do give off a mild odour if significantly frightened, but the effect is generally brief.

Human is the fourth studio album by American death metal band Death, released on October 22, 1991, by Relativity Records. The album marked the beginning of a major stylistic change for Death, being more technically complex and progressive than the band's previous efforts. This new style would continue to evolve on all following Death albums
Aside from that, cockroach doesn’t have blood pressure like we do, so cutting off its head doesn’t make it bleed to death, and their necks would seal off just by clotting. A cockroach doesn’t need much food to survive and a meal they had one day would be enough for them to last for weeks since it’s pretty much doing nothing without its head. The cockroaches that pop up in our homes only represent a very small percentage of the total cockroach population in the world. Scientists actually only categorize about 1 percent of the world’s total cockroach population as pests. The rest are seen as useful insects that populate everything from dense forests to deserts in the most exotic portions of the world.
I’m about four years old, and I’m sitting in the green-carpeted hallway of our family’s first home in Biloxi, Mississippi. The bathroom door stands open in front of me, and my mother is emerging from the shower. As she pulls a towel from the rack, I notice a dark stain marring that clean, fluffy pink material. Finding a small dead cockroach tangled in my wet hair after a trip to the beach, and thereafter suffering recurring nightmares of picking roaches out of my hair. Roaches invade our homes and make those intimate spaces their own. As physical embodiments of filth and germs, they show that for all of our fortifications against dirt and disease, those efforts are ultimately futile.
A cockroach oozing blue poison was a "watershed moment" revealing what killed tuatara at a Nelson zoo. Natureland acting director Grant Abel said the striking image of the poisoned cockroach, taken earlier this year by a senior staff member, had far-reaching implications and had sparked "a lot of conversations" about the use of the anticoagulant brodifacoum around New Zealand. When the second died, it wasn't connected because the symptoms were masked in the first death. When the third died, someone noticed that it was very similar to the second death. The photo of the crushed cockroach oozing the over-the-counter blue Pestoff brand of rat poison had been taken just a few weeks before the third tuatara died. The poison's active ingredient is brodifacoum, commonly used for rodent control.

Make your own, natural cockroach bait. Mix three parts boric acid with one part powdered sugar. The sugar lures the roaches, while the boric acid kills them. 5. Bring in the experts. If you want to get rid of roaches naturally and you’ve got a big infestation, try contacting a natural pest control company. My pest control company uses a substance called diatomaceous earth in the walls of my home (inserted through the holes around the wall outlets). Diatomaceous earth is a soft sedimentary rock that is easily crushed into a fine powder. It is used in many things (including some medicines and skin care products) but is often used as a mechanical insecticide because it causes an insect to die without the use of chemicals.
