4 children removed from Louisville home infested with cockroaches; 2 arrested

4 children removed from Louisville home infested with cockroaches; 2 arrested Two people are facing criminal abuse charges after police reported finding four children living in a home that was severely infested with cockroaches and bedbugs. Jessica Downs, 31, and Sean Landrey, 38, were arrested Thursday on charges of second-degree criminal abuse and endangering the welfare of a minor. Police were sent on a welfare check after receiving a tip on the abuse hotline stating a 7-year-old girl arrived at school with a cut on her lip. According to the arrest report, police found a cockroach infestation and "a severe amount of clutter and trash" inside when they arrived at the residence in the 5400 block of Tracy Way.

Cockroaches are quickly evolving to be resistant to pesticides and could soon be impossible to kill with chemicals alone, according to a new study . The bugs are so dangerous because they are carriers of dozens of bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella, which can make people very sick.

Cockroaches are being born impervious to bug sprays and it's happening fast.

A Purdue University study found that the commonly found German species of roaches are being born with an immunity to toxins with which they haven't yet been in contact. The shocking study, published on Live Science, concluded the evolution of the German cockroach, also called the Blattella germanica, develops an immunity to new poisons in as quickly as one generation of offspring.

Arrest Made After Man Reportedly Threatened To Kill Muslims At Miami Gardens Mosque

Arrest Made After Man Reportedly Threatened To Kill Muslims At Miami Gardens Mosque A man is in jail on hate crime charges after police say he posted several messages on social media threatening to kill Muslims at a mosque in Miami Gardens. Miami Gardens Police arrested 27-year-old Brandyn Luis Hernandez on Monday. Police began investigating after a report of cyber terroristic threats. Investigators say Hernandez posted multiple messages on social media, threatening the Islamic Center of Greater Miami. According to police, those posts contained several expletives, threats of arson, and his desire to kill Muslims “one by one.

Because, honestly, fuck cockroaches . They ’re lightning-fast, nearly indestructible, and carry bacteria that cause diarrhea, food poisoning, staph infections, and more. I always reach for my trusty New Balance, but was curious what methods others use—so I asked the staff at the office what they do

"We didn't have a clue that something like that could happen this fast," study co-author Michael Scharf said. "Cockroaches developing resistance to multiple classes of insecticides at once will make controlling these pests almost impossible with chemicals alone."

The study was conducted in various buildings in central Illinois and Indiana as well as at Purdue's labs that had roach infestations. Researchers used various combinations of bug sprays and studied several generations of roaches to reach their conclusion.

German cockroaches, which reproduce quickly and scavenge among areas occupied by people, are described in the report as "the species that gives all other cockroaches a bad name."

Stopping the super scavengers from spreading bacteria and disease in the future will depend on traps and vacuums more so than chemicals, the report suggests.

A female German cockroach can lay nearly 400 eggs in a lifetime, according to Orkin exterminators. They also note that despite having wings, this seemingly evolving breed of roach "very rarely flies."
