Errrrr. ........ this freaks me out - confirms my hatred of these bloody things.
A cockroach can live for a week without its head. Due to their open circulatory system, and the fact that they breathe through little holes in each of their body segments, they are not dependent on the mouth or head to breathe. The roach only dies because without a mouth, it can't drink water and dies of thirst. The Captivating Crown Prince
A cockroach can hold its breath for 40 minutes, and can even survive being submerg ... ed under water for half an hour. They hold their breath often to help regulate their loss of water.
Cockroaches can run up to three miles in an hour, which means they can spread germs and bacteria throughout a home very quickly.
