    Its Alive.

    When I lived in Floridia they called them palmetto bugs. They were different from the ones in NY. You only saw one at a time but they were enormous and fast!!! I swear you could hear there little feet as they ran across the tile floor. Nasty!

    I hate roaches with the passion. I got chills just looking at the default pic. I hate it when they fly around. It gives me the creeps. I can't kill them, not cause I don't think they deserve to meet their doom at the bottom of my shoe, but because I can't stand the crunching...

    When I was a kid , we lived in a house that had roaches. It freaked me out. It disgusts me now. They weren't the flying type luckily, or I might have ended up with PTSD. I hate them. The big ones scare the crap out of me. I think they know it too. I've had them wiggle their...

    Roaches are disgusting, dirty and disease ridden...and very fast and sneaky.  I'd rather have a mouse problem than a roach problem in my apartment.

    Gross!

    I once moved into a house that no one was aware had roaches. It took a lot of visits from the exterminator, but we were lucky and were able to eradicate them. Those effing things are gross!

    Roaches

    Hey, you guys.  Roaches aren't bad.  A little tobasco, some olive oil.  Sautee over a low flame for ten minutes.  Serve with guacamole.  Not bad.
