    ....cockroaches are repelled by light

    mycatsmom

    That's interesting .
    The Heat is a big part of it, Something else is that there vison isnt the same as ours, and they cant only see the light in the dark, so they go towards the light, But I guess to really know for sure, you'd have to walk in thier shoes

    insects dont were shoes
    mycatsmom

    wonderer, LOL . that joke was a shoe-in
