What is the difference between a cockroach and a beetle?

Cockroaches and beetles belong to the insect group. Both of these have six legs, a head, thorax and abdomen. The main difference between a cockroach and a beetle is that cockroaches have a pair of antennae while beetles do not have any. Cockroaches are also larger than most other species of British cockroaches.

The difference between cockroaches and beetles

The cockroaches and beetles belong to the Blattodea order. It is commonly referred to as “true bugs” and roaches. There are over 5,000 species of cockroaches all over the world. The diversity in colour, size and shapes of these insects is unrivalled. Some species have wings while others do not. When they come out at night it can be a frightening experience for homeowners since cockroaches leave behind an unpleasant smell and stains that spread foul odour through your home. They reproduce faster than any other pest due to high prolificacy rates which makes them an uninvited guest in every house across UK’s households .

The true beetle family has more than 300,000 types of beetles in six sub-orders. This is the largest group of insects and larvae . They are usually predacious or plant-eating bugs. There are many plants that depend on beetles for pollination such as the famous chocolate which cannot be produced without the help of beetles. Beetles have a tough outer shell to protect them from their natural predators and adverse weather conditions.

The diet preference between these two types of insects vary widely depending on the species you want to compare: Some cockroach species feed on wood, decaying matter and vegetation while others prefer human food and garbage. Beetles, however, feed on dead animal flesh, leaves and flowers especially those with sweet nectar . Most people consider roaches as pests because they can become a nuisance in our homes at night when we are trying to sleep. Beetles, on the other hand, are considered more beneficial because they help with decomposition of dead animal matter and thus aid in recycling nutrients back into soil.
