The Annotated Budak: Black Beetles an excellent piece on cockroaches by @budak

For all their biological diversity and ecological intrique, Singapore's cockroaches, all 100 or so of them, native or otherwise, will probably never enjoy the regard accorded to prettier bugs. The handful who associate with man, like other maligned arthropods , will continue to find filthy niches even in this cleanest of cities.
