cockroaches come under the list of pests IE they spread infection , spiders come under the group of predator insects rthey survive by eatin other insects , as far as humans r concerned cockroackes r dangerous aS THEY SPREAD INFECTION & CAUSE diseases ,spiders which we see around r mostly harmless to humans they just keeep filing their stomach they also help us by feedin on mosquitoes ,but some spiders r venemous and dangerous like the black widow spider seen in the americas their venom is fatal , so now u decide which is good and which is bad

Cockroaches are definitly worse. Although I have never heard of someone dying from a cockroach bite.

I think cockroaches, they are discusting, get into everything and are hard to get rid of. Not to mention they have like 50 babies at a time.

Cockroaches and spiders are living things that are familiar to us, due to co-exist with humans in the surrounding settlements. Surely these creatures unwanted third presence, because all three can give a bad reputation to the settlers. The existence of these creatures at home may interfere and spread a variety of diseases and allergens, and when found in restaurants and hotels can lower the reputation of their position.

I hate cockroaches too! They are so annoying. Some cockroaches can even fly. they are so disgusting. Another creature that I hate is mosquitoes!

I think spiders are worse. Cockroaches are disgusting but they don't really do much. Spiders creep me out more because they can hang from the ceiling on a web. Also, some spiders are venomous and can kill you. Roaches are not venomous (or poisonous). They may carry germs, but they can't directly kill you the way spiders can.
