    Eww. Jeez. Nasty.

    Oldest tings on the planet I think. heard they could survive an atomic blast. I get chills and want to scream when I see one. I can't stand them. I usually let them go to hide. But when they're in the house I twinge and pray a shoe is near by. Then I can administer the coup de...

    They Scare Me

    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...

    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!

    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...

    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.

    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.
