Even though cockroaches are unwanted guests, there are still some interesting tidbits to know about them. Here are four fun facts about cockroaches.

Cockroach Tea

In the 19th century, people in the Louisiana bayou would make cockroach tea as a remedy for tetanus, as well as other afflictions. Ancient Greeks and Egyptians are also believed to have used boiled cockroaches for medicinal purposes.

Beware the Headless Cockroach

Cockroaches can survive for up to a week without their head. This is because cockroaches have an open circulatory system, which allows them to breathe through little holes in each of their body segments. However, being headless will eventually kill a cockroach because it doesn't have a mouth to consume water and will slowly die of thirst.

Cockroaches Won't Drown Easily

Cockroaches can hold their breath for up to 40 minutes, and can be expected to survive submersion in water for up to half an hour.

Cockroaches Have a Varied---and Disgusting---Diet

Cockroaches are known to dine on all sorts of starchy and sweet items that they can find in your kitchen. And they're even known to love beer. More disgustingly, they are known to eat toenails, eyelashes, and pet fur.
