Do roaches eat electrical wiring? Is my PS3 safe?

#1PolishCockatielPosted 5/18/2012 3:38:18 PM
Saw a roach in my bedroom last night in my newly carpeted and newly painted apartment that I've had for only 6 weeks. I am terrified that it may attack my Ps3. Do roaches eat plastic and electrical wiring and the sort?

Yes, that is actually the largest part of their diet. They also eat bluray discs and once they do they take on the characteristics of the contents of the disc.

The only blu ray discs i have are pornographic in nature. Does this mean that the roach shall become a beautiful women who gets pecked a lot?

Yes roaches can eat Plastic, but it would take a large colony to pose a real risk to your PS3, and if you have that many around you have bigger issues to worry about than the PS3.

I was thinking more of the health impact that many would cause you

It's a roach, if you see 1, there's probably 1000 hiding. Call your landlord.

You're a kinda man. But I'm already a mad man and I don't think one roach has pushed me that further over the edge. If saw 4 in a corner though I'd probably sleep outside.

Roaches have been rumored to chew up insides of old transistor TV's but I would think you'd need a pretty nasty infestation, and even then such incidents are probably extremely rare in reality. I really doubt roaches are destroying a lot of electronics out there.
