Why Do Cockroaches Even Exist? Turns out cucarachas are more than just pests that crawl around our homes.

If you are like many when moving to Costa Rica, the last thing that comes to mind are cockroaches (cucarachas in Spanish) in your house. Some of them are huge, I mean really big.

Costa Rica is a tropical country. Bugs thrive here. Keeping your house clean can reduce a cockroach problem. But, wait, maybe the cucarachas are more than just pests that crawl around our homes and are actually beneficial and even essential to the environment.

Without question cockroaches have a serious public relations problem. They’re creepy and crawly and pretty much universally despised by us humans. But that’s OK, because Mother Nature loves her cockroaches.

In a special edition of DNews, Dr. Sapna Parikh fields a question from their Reddit page concerning cockroaches and their overall benefit to nature. It turns out that roaches actually serve several vital functions out in the wild, if not in your kitchen.

Watch the video and the decide if cockroaches should even exit in your environment.
