I Hate 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.

    Ugh my sister has oodles of them in her house.

    Nasty. I can't stand them. One of the many reasons I don't stop by and visit... If I found a roach in my house I would probably burn my house down. Or break half my possessions trying to kill it lol...

    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...

    You know you're from New Orleans when.

    ..you know roaches fly and it doesn't freak you out. Ugh... There is something Verboten about hearing the scratch scratch in the vents and realize there is a sucker trapped in there, it's the weekend and the rental company doesn't respond. Time to get the Bengal!!

    I Hate Me A Damn Roach

    I just cleaned out an old drawer in my desk in my room and found three of those sons of *******.  Big ol' nasty dark red one, a younger one, and a mid-size one on his back.  God, those things are gross.  I had one fly on me in the middle of the night one time--they...

    I Hate Roaches...

    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...

    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!

    These Things Would Get To Survive Nuclear Warfare?

    Ahh. I f***ing hate roaches! I am horrified of them. I know I'm way bigger than they are and that its just a bug, but still.......  I hate when I see one crawling around my house and when I finally gather up enough courage to pick up a shoe and kill it, it runs somewhere...

    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!

    New Apartment, New "pets"

    I don't even know what to do anymore. I moved into a new apartment last month to discover a mild roach problem in the kitchen but even a mild one is too big. I've tried gel baits, boric acid, sticky traps, greased jar traps, sealing up my food, making sure everything's dry as a...
