Cockroaches Have Neighborhoods, Too

3 posts in this topic

According to an ongoing study called the National Cockroach Project, the roaches of three NYC neighborhoods - the Upper West Side, the Upper East Side, and Roosevelt Island - are genetically distinct. Like many of the city's humans, each group tends to stay in its own neighborhood. And, since American cockroaches originated overseas, these urban insects can also claim immigrants as ancestors.

Interesting... I wonder if the roaches in Hawai'i are distinct as well. I know for sure they are gross.

Makes sense that they live in neighbourhoods because you can buy a roach motel at the store to get rid of them. LOL
