Did You Know That Roaches Hate Sunlight?

Do Roaches Really Run When They See Sunlight?

Roaches, those elusive creatures that scuttle across our floors and walls, have long been associated with darkness and hiding in the shadows. But have you ever wondered what happens when these nocturnal insects are suddenly exposed to sunlight? In this article, we will explore the fascinating behavior of roaches when confronted with the bright and piercing light of the sun.

Before we delve into their reaction to sunlight, let’s first understand the natural behavior of roaches. These resilient insects are primarily active during the night, seeking out food, water, and shelter under the cover of darkness. They possess a remarkable ability to adapt to various environments, including our homes, where they can find ample sources of sustenance.

Like many other nocturnal creatures, roaches are sensitive to light. This sensitivity, known as photophobia, compels them to seek dark, hidden areas during daylight hours. When exposed to bright light, their instinctual response is to avoid it as much as possible.

When a roach finds itself suddenly exposed to sunlight, it can trigger a range of reactions. Some roaches may freeze momentarily, seemingly stunned by the unexpected brightness. Others may start running in a frantic attempt to find cover and escape the intense illumination.

Roaches are masters at finding shelter in tight spaces, and when faced with sunlight, they will quickly scurry away to seek refuge. Dark crevices, cracks, and gaps in walls become their hiding spots of choice. The instinct to find darkness is driven by the need to protect themselves from potential threats and predators.

Roaches’ aversion to light and their affinity for darkness are not without purpose. It is a survival mechanism that has allowed them to thrive for millions of years. By remaining hidden during the day, roaches can avoid predators, maintain a comfortable temperature, and conserve energy for their nocturnal activities.

The sight of roaches scurrying away when exposed to sunlight is not merely a myth but a real phenomenon driven by their innate behavior. Their sensitivity to light, known as photophobia, compels them to seek the safety of darkness and hidden spaces. So, the next time you come across these resilient creatures in your home, remember their natural inclination to flee from the piercing rays of the sun.

While it’s essential to address any infestations or issues with roaches, understanding their behavior can help us better coexist with these ancient inhabitants of our planet. Embrace the curiosity to observe and learn from the fascinating adaptations of the creatures that share our environment, even if they sometimes make our skin crawl.

public Safety

Crime has vaulted near the top of voters’ concerns, just after the economy and inflation. According to Gallup, 80 percent of Americans worry “a great deal” or a “fair amount” about crime, the highest level in two decades.


Such fears pose yet another midterm election hurdle for Democrats, on top of public angst over soaring prices and President Biden’s dismal public approval ratings.


As a former prosecutor, substitute judge, legal advocate for children, state Senator, and as a legislator, Jennifer Wexton should be well aware that our society is a dangerous place. Wexton should understand that our children, the elderly, and everyone else in between needs to be protected from violent criminals and repeat offenders. She ignores this and advocates on their behalf with light sentences, “no cash bail”, Criminal Justice Reform, and Restorative Justice.


Do you recall the rape of a (15) year old girl in a Loudoun County High School bathroom in May 2021 by a transgendered student? If this wasn’t bad enough, “Criminal Justice Reform” allowed for the rapists sentenced to be reduced, removing him from the sexual assault registry and providing supervised probation. To make matters worse, the Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Scott Ziegler IGNORED the federally mandated processes and procedures when incidents of this nature occur, and now Wexton is abolishing Title IX protections under HR5-Equality Act.


Jennifer Wexton got the ball rolling on the rapists lenient sentence by introducing Bill NO. 1082 in 2017, which passed (and she’s proud of it, see video during meeting with NAACP).

In 2019, Wexton proudly endorsed Buta Biberaj for Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney. Prior to being elected, Biberaj was the legal redress for the Loudoun NAACP; this is not an insignificant detail. Biberaj also belongs to the Virginia Progressive Prosecutors For Justice. The VPPFJ’s primary goal is “Criminal Justice Reform” or “Restorative Justice”.


Wexton, Biberaj are closely aligned Progressive ideologues and share questionable associations with a variety of organizations and people.

Who could forget the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020 over George Floyd. Wexton is so radical that she sponsored the “George Floyd Justice Policing Act” (defund the police) and the “Mental Health Justice Act” that allowed for increased funding for social workers that are meant to take the place of police officers around the country.


These are only a few examples of what Wexton and the Progressive Democrats “Criminal Justice Reform” and “Restorative Justice” look like for Public Safety:
