When you mention cockroaches, most people immediately think of the disgusting little creatures that invade homes and rummage through food and garbage, spreading germs. It's probably worth considering that there are approximately 400 species of cockroaches in Australia, of which only a handful are introduced pests that have been responsible for this reputation.
Cockroaches are very primitive creatures and have been around for millions of years. They are nocturnal and are seldom seen in great numbers during daylight hours, but it is generally accepted that for every cockroach seen there are at least a further ten hidden away in out of sight harbourages.
