Roaches have their use after all

Environmental groups and some scientists are saying biofuels such as soy-based biodiesel or ethanol are not as that helpful in reducing greenhouse gas emissions because they use insecticides and fertilizers, which they claimed could be harmful to the environment.

Scientists from the US Dept. of Agriculture are looking to develop pesticides that have more environment-friendly profiles and have discovered Asian cockroaches as natural born soy pests killers.

Scientists said that these potential biocontrol agents work at night and rest during the day.

These super flying roaches may have their use in the grand scheme of things but who would like to see hundreds of them in the soy field? *shudder*
