is cockroach consider as animals? but i guess its an insect, right? cockroach are one of the many organisms that i am most afraid of. i hate them, truly, i dont like seeing them in our house, most specially on our kitchan walls and floors. aside that they have been widely known as household pest insects. they live by human and pet food, and leave an offensive odor. they can passively transports microbes on their body surfaces specially those microbes that are potentially dangerous to humans, particularly in environments such as the hospitals, canals, and other places where they can strive to live on and have plenty to conceive. how about you my friends? thanks and good day jhelai

i am not scared of cockroaches cause they are not harmful. they are disgusting. but that's it only. there is nothing to be afraid from it. i am more afraid of big animals that devour humans. i mean tigers, lions, bears, anaconda (whoa), these are scary animals. i hate seeing them in the zoos. they should actually have them put to extinction. would their non existence affect the eco system of the environment. i don't think it will affect that much. so we much kill all those ferocious and dangerous animals.

Hi jheLaichie...I don't know if this counts but I am truly afraid of spiders. Thankfully we haven't had roaches in the house but we do get a lot of spiders it seems and I have my husband take them away every single time. He doesn't like to kill things so he gathers them in a cup and releases them outside.

I am terrified of snakes. My mom is also. I think I got it mainly from her. They are so quiet and sneaky and you usually do not know one is around until the last minute. They are deadly also.

I don't like cockroaches either, and I certianly don't like them in my home. I'm not afraid of them, but they are extremely annoying. For me it's spiders. Those creepy bugs scare the crap out of me. I actually think it's from watching the movie Aracnaphobia at very young age. I still check my lamp occasionally to see if there are spiders on the switch. I feel silly but it's true!

I hate centipedes. I'm not comfortable with the idea that its going to creep against my skin. Yuck, it makes me tingle just by imagining it. I can't stand the feeling. I guess most insects like cockroach etc I can't bear the smell of that so I availed myself some insecticide. I hate snakes, obviously most of them are poisonous so I'm afraid of catching into one specially whenever I visit my province in Bicol, we're in the middle of the field and I just can't bear the thought of having a snake somewhere in the field. I'm also afraid of large frogs... I'm not sure where these fears came from I just thought I don't want anywhere near them.

I am afraid of almost every insect..! Whether it be a cockroach or an ant, or lizard anything!! Well, in my afraid list, the top one is lizard. Oh God, these species are related to crocodiles..they look awful, and dangerous !! If I happen to see even one in any room, I never enter that room again until I am convinced by some other person that the lizard is gone..!! Sounds funny, but I really HATE these insects!

cockroachs are an insect that I don't like at all. I've only seen one in my life and I knew it had family somewhere....had nightmares till I found another place. Snakes....I really, really don't like snakes. Not sure why. My brother used to collect them and I would get so creeped out when he brought them home. It didn't make much sense as I collected spiders, toads, frogs, lizards and you name it. I dug worms and baited my own hook. I don't know why but snakes just always sent me running and still do.

I am afraid of cows and dogs.My mother worked on a dairy farm,I would go with her there.She would call the cows in and they would circle you.I felt like they would run over me.My mother has been run over a few times. I am afraid of dogs because I was bit around the face when I was young.

cockroaches help balance the ecosystem.we must not hate them.sad to note that they're thriving to places where we are too.they are some sort of scavengers and eat garbage too. we just need to regulate their population and never allow them to have a population blast in your own house. they are carriers of diseases too.
