    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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...
