Waving Waving Waving!

Once, I used to be a roach killer extraordinaire. Adept at smashing and adept at bashing them into flattened pastes of roaches. Very handy with a shoe!

And then, I became fairly good at trapping them, catching them and then sending them outside to roam

These days, I just say "hi". And they wave their antennae back at me, and sometimes run around in circles. Frequently, they decide to escape, and in their attempts to escape, will charge straight for my feet. They're not very good at hiding, my roaches.

hehe Tardy you make me laugh- <br />

sprinkle a little borax powder inside your wall sockets and other places they like to come in<br />
<br />
if you have issues with bees, get a water mister, put a little dish soap in it, add water, and spray them with that, it keeps them from flying...<br />

and my favorite keep the nasty buggies away tip, mint spray will drive away wasps, yellow jackets, and dirt daubbers - and it smells a heck of a lot nicer than pesticides

hahahahha<br />

That device looks very cool!! It's amusing that they have an opaque or clear optional part for people who don't want to look at the bugs...

hahahahaha that sounds like me. I used to kill them but now I set them free. however, if they come within five feet of me I get creeped out and start screaming.<br />
when I was in India, this huggeeeee 10 inch cockeroach got inside and it was flying towards me so I screamed and dove into a bed and covered myself with the blankets. then my motorbike cousin coolly caught it IN HIS HAND and let it outside. he told me it was safe and he laughed at me :p

Love your comment, Emerald! Will send to my daughter in GA.

What was with that movie? Singing roaches and the dude from 'sliders'...<br />
I have roaches, not really friends because I terrorise them with fly spray occasionally, but they're better flatmates than the rat was (before the dog killed it). Suburban wildlife, cannot beat it...I'm looking forward to my new apartment, wont be no bugs on the 16th floor.

have you seen Palmetto bugs? They're giant roaches in the south and they FLY!!! They will flay AT YOU>>>>!!!! I am terrified.

How can you tell when you're really poor? When you drop a CRUMB on the floor, and the **** roaches pour over it chanting: Clap your hands, stomp your feet, Praise the Lord, We got something to eat!!
