Along with death and taxes, sometimes it seems that cockroaches are one of those unpleasant things you just can’t avoid. Scientists agree that roaches are one of the most successful animals on the planet. According to entomologist Steve Jacobs:
  • Fossil evidence shows that cockroaches have been on the earth for over 300 million years!
  • Today, about 3,500 species of cockroaches can be found throughout the world.
  • There are 55 cockroach species that make their home right here in the United States.
