Cockroaches and Termites

Order Blattaria

Order Blattaria (or Blattodea) consists of cockroaches and their descendants, in particular termites.

Cockroaches are perhaps the most familiar and hated of all insects. However, only a few are unwelcome pests to houses. Cockroaches have survived with a body design that is unchanged for millions of years.

The following are some forest cockroaches.
