Earlier on June 11, it became known that a group of scientists from Singapore, China, Germany and the UK conducted a number of experiments and concluded that in the future cockroaches will be able to help find people under the rubble. As the site writes 360tv.ruThe study used large Madagascar cockroaches. Electrodes were implanted into their antennae, with the help of which you can control the movements of the insect. On their backs were fixed miniature “backpacks” with a microcontroller, antenna, battery and infrared camera. Experts believe that such “equipped” cockroaches can be used in search of people under the rubble, since insects will be able to penetrate where rescuers cannot.
In January, Andrei Stepanishchev, the acting general director of the disinfection service for Moscow and the Moscow region, “Ecocontrol”, spoke about effective means of fighting cockroaches. At the initial stage, you can use “Confidant”, which contains imidacloprid as an active ingredient, and “Titan”, which includes thiamethoxam with prolonged action. If we are talking about a large insect infestation, then the room should be treated with dichlorvos.
