Cockroaches Will Outlive Us All: Here's Proof

A study has found that roaches are becoming immune to insecticides.

(SPOT.ph) In a world where change is inevitable, only one thing will remain: cockroaches. The indestructible, horror-inducing, six-legged, creature from our nightmares—that's been around since the time of the dinosaurs—doesn't seem to have plans of going away anytime soon, no matter how much we want them to. Based on a study conducted by Purdue University, the cockroaches are now becoming immune to insecticides

"This is a previously unrealized challenge in cockroaches," said Michael Scharf, who led the study, in an interview with CNN. "Cockroaches developing resistance to multiple classes of insecticides at once will make controlling these pests almost impossible with chemicals alone," he continued.

In honor of our unwanted house guests, we put together some of the best videos that show just how difficult it is to get rid of them. Check out the most skin-crawling encounters below:
