WHAT IS THAT SOUND? DOES IT MEAN DAN­GER FOR ME?

Animal Scene - - EXOTICS -

Other in­sects pro­duce sound by rub­bing their legs or wings. The sound of a hiss­ing cock­roach is pro­duced when the in­sect forces air through the spir­a­cles found on their tho­rax and ab­domen, and this sets the hiss­ing roaches apart from other in­sects. Although other roach species can make a sim­i­lar noise when ex­pelling a de­fense odor when threat­ened, the hiss­ing cock­roach pro­duces only the noise it­self with­out other odors for de­fense.
