Tragedy During a Roach Eating Contest

 

Edward “Eddie” Archbold is seen in the above video grabbing handfuls of roaches, and tossing them in his mouth like peanuts. The 32 year old resident of South Florida passed away earlier this month after eating several dozen of those roaches. The man was competing in a roach-eating contest with the hopes of winning an ivory ball python from a local reptile store.

After almost inhaling a bucket of 2-3 inch long roaches, Eddie threw his hands up in the air and was declared the winner. Shortly after winning the contest, Eddie started to feel sick and began vomiting. He eventually passed out and was rushed to an area hospital where he was declared dead. The medical examiner’s office is carrying out some tests to figure out the exact cause of Eddie’s death. Many are speculating his death was due to an allergic reaction caused by eating the roaches.

A fellow roach eating contestant of Eddies, Mathew Karwacki, made a Facebook comment about the roaches they were eating:

“Yes the contest was crazy, but all the bugs were captive bred and raised on a commercial diet and veggies. These insects are raised for the pet industry as fodder. So there was nothing that those bugs contained that would hurt a human (unless yes there was some sort of allergic reaction, but that is usually instant…he died awhile AFTER the contest)”

Eating Insects

Many of us North Carolina residents, along with most of the Western world, find eating roaches revolting. The truth is Entomophagy, or the act of eating insects, is a way of life for millions of people worldwide who rely on insects for protein and other nutrients needed to live. Eating insects is ingrained in many different cultures.

Thailand just might be the insect eating capital of the world. Vendors will sell crispy insects from carts at outdoor markets, and fried crickets are served liked peanuts in bars.

In Latin America ants, fire-roasted tarantulas, and cicadas are common customary dishes. One of the most famous culinary insects in Mexico, the agave worm, is eaten on tortillas and placed in bottles of tequila. Chocolate-covered locusts and candy-covered worms make getting your daily dose of protein oh-so sweet.

In Ghana during the spring rains, winged termites are collected and fried, roasted, or even made into bread. The termites are high in proteins, fats and oils, all of which are needed for a healthy, well-balanced diet.

And in Florida, contestants eat roaches in the hopes of winning a pet snake.

Roach Control

Residents in the Raleigh, North Carolina area find cockroaches to be disgusting pests, not intended for eating… With good reason. They carry over 40 different types of bacteria, and cause numerous diseases. Other unpleasant side effects roaches can cause are food poisoning, dysentery, diarrhea, parasitic worms, and urinary track infections. In addition, they have also been shown to cause allergic reactions in humans, which was likely the cause of Eddie’s death.

If you are a Raleigh resident, you do not want these disease carrying pests anywhere near your property, let alone in your home. If you are having a cockroach problem, contact a local exterminator immediately, and let’s leave the roach eating to the competitive eaters.

Move Over Search and Rescue Dogs—Make Way For First-Response Roaches

The Good News About Roaches

 
Researchers at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC hope cockroaches can be put to good use, saving lives in disasters like earthquakes, fires and chemical attacks. These pests are being outfitted with tiny microchips that act as sensors, and are guided around by using low frequency electrical pulses that the insects can pick up with their antenna. A video released by the University shows the roaches being guided along curved lines drawn by the researchers. The roaches are self powered, kind of like riding a horse. As long as you feed the roach the electrical impulses, it will keep going.

Researchers anticipate that these tiny but strong roaches will be able to maneuver their way around ruble and fallen debris, after the act of a natural disaster, and find trapped victims. They hope to outfit the roaches with tiny microphones and video cameras as well, in order to better locate potential victims. Researchers at the University think that their work could make a huge difference after disasters in densely populated urban areas.

The research team is using the Madagascar hissing cockroach, one of the world’s largest species of roach. They can grow to be up to three inches long, but they are still small enough to maneuver between the fallen debris.

Now The Bad News About Roaches

 
It’s intriguing to see all the amazing things the insect world can do for us. For every account of them benefitting our society, there are thousands of more detrimental accounts. Roaches pose a serious health risk. They leave behind feces and saliva that have the capability of spreading 33 different types of bacteria. Cockroaches also have allergen proteins that have can cause severe allergic and asthmatic reactions. In addition, cockroaches are hosts of six parasitic worms and several human pathogens. Sadly, children and elderly can even die from the allergens that cockroaches carry.

If you are living in the Raleigh-Durham area, and have been seeing cockroaches inside your home, contract a pest control professional today. Don’t put your health at risk–Let’s let the researchers at NC State University find better uses for them.
