Cockroaches are one of the hardiest species on planet earth – scientists believe they have been around since the time T. Rex walked the earth. Not only have they survived, they have thrived in a wide variety of conditions, particularly those habitats that are warm and wet. No wonder they’re so difficult to get rid of. With over 4600 known species, cockroaches are related to termites biologically, but their behavior is different.
