I Hate Roaches

    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...

    Does The Boric Acid Sticky Paste Work?

    I read you can mix one part flour and two parts boric acid and Karo syrup until you get a paste consistency. You put it in all the corners of cabinets, unscrew wall outlets, behind drawers, under sink near pipes, etc. and that it kills their exoskeleton and dehydrates them to...

    I Hate All Bugs But Roaches Are The Worst.

    Yuck

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
