Yep...
I once worked at Rent-a-Center and we often would get computers, dvd players, sony playstations, refrigerators, stoves...you name it, infested with roaches.
4 years ago a friend of mine gave me his iMac(blueberry) because it no longer worked(so he thought). Once I opened it up I realized the roaches had damaged the hard drive.
Anyways, I installed a new one and cleaned it up and sold it on ebay for $350. I made myself a $280 profit after shipping and price of hd. The keyboard to this iMac was full of roach crap. Took me a while to clean that out.
