You Have Only the Illusion of Control Over the Roaches in Your Home

After reading the headline for this article, did you check your room for signs of dark splotches on your wall? If you didn’t, congratulations, you live somewhere that has snakes or lizards. If you did, you live in a hellhole, but you know exactly what I’m talking about. Yes, today we are going to be talking about something that is the bane of existence and that keeps me alert and on my toes at all times, day or night. I am of course talking about roaches and, more specifically, the illusion of control we have over the ones in our homes.


For those of you who have had roaches in your home, you may believe that you have control over them, that they are a problem to be solved. Unfortunately, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Let me explain.


Roaches (or periplaneta americana if you’re dead) are some of the most notorious enemies of homeowners across the globe. They are gross, conniving, and always looking for ways to make your life worse. To the point where some people spends hundreds if not thousands of dollars in order to get rid of them. And even they can’t sometimes, so what is the truth?


The truth is that roaches are of no concern to us because we are of no concern to them. Recently, scientists learned that if roaches wanted to, they could dominate us without hesitation. Same with ants, same with grasshoppers. There are enough of them in the world to overtake us, they just choose not to.


Not only that, but they are smarter than they want us to think. They have massive communication networks to make sure they aren’t eating from roach traps. They can leave messages on certain doors to tell other roaches when or when not to enter. They work in shifts to never avoid missing an opportunity. You think that the one you killed is an accident? No, that’s a calculated loss.


What can be done? Well, it’s like the Matrix in that you can choose to accept this information and live a more difficult life or you can forget you ever read this and live a life of blissful ignorance. The choice is yours.


So have fun sleeping at night with this new information.
