What kind of bug is infamous since it’s gross, terrifying, and almost impossible to get rid of? If you thought cockroach, you got it right. These critters are a sort of pest that really no person would like to come across around their home, munching on a pizza that was left out or a candy bar. If you find yourself with roaches in Corpus Christi, you should look for profession pest control, or more specifically roach control, as soon as possible. Not only are these bugs irritating, but unfortunately they also happen to be quite difficult to drive out once they have moved into a home.
In the 1990’s in Florida, pest control technicians figured out it worked well to bait cockroaches by using a sweet, poisoned mixture, but soon enough this method stopped working. A lot of roach control specialists wondered if the roaches hard grown immune to this poison, however, the roaches evolved their genetic code.
Through studies, researchers found that roaches actually have taste hairs all over their bodies that transmit signals to their brains. Researches chose to look speicifically at two different nerves, one that transmits a taste that is bitter up to the roach’s brain, and another that transmits the taste of sweetness. What scientists found out dealing with the ineffectiveness of commonly used poisons is that the poisons are not actually what happen to be ineffective, but the cockroaches have altered their genetic make-up overtime and discarded their love for glucose. Glucose is a kind of sugar, and it is an ingredient in many sugary products, like the sweet poisons that are often used by exterminators to attract and poison the roaches. But it was found that glucose transmits a bitter taste to cockroaches’ brains, however this hasn’t always been the case.
The genetic makeup which sent a sweet taste to the bug’s brain when it ate glucose has changed, and because of this cockroaches are passing off this gene and genetically changing into some kind of super roach.
