Cockroaches - in cars and coffee machines

1) Woman crashes car into overhead bridge after being startled by cockroach
Pest experts say best way to avoid it is not to eat in car.

2) Cockroaches common in some types of coffee machines

Cockroach infestations are common in coffee machines at F&B outlets in Singapore, pest control companies told Channel NewsAsia, with one saying that 40% of commercial coffee machines it checks are infested.

It is moist and comfortable in coffee machines if they are kept in the kitchen, like a resort for them (cockroaches).

Cockroach infestations are limited to establishments that use fully automatic machines like hotels, office pantries and F&B outlets, rather than the professional espresso machines seen at many cafes. This is because fully automatic ones operate using thermoblock technology instead of having boilers.

Professional espresso machine boilers are very hot. No cockroaches can survive there as they will be fried quickly.
