Firebrat (image) Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology Share Print E-Mail Caption This is a photo of firebrat, Thermobia domestica. As their name suggests, firebrats love hot environments with temperatures between 32°C and 37°C. Because they never lay their eggs at temperatures under 25°C, they are found only in bakeries or canteen kitchens.
