How do you act whenever the cockroach is just near? How do you also kill the cockroach? Do you often use the pesticide?

I dont kill cockroaches, I heard once that if you kill them then they will lay their eggs and then you will have lots of cockroaches running around the place. This is probably a myth because someone else has told me that it isnt true, but it sticks in my head so I wont kill them. I just get them out of the house, usually I grab a plastic bag and try to get it in the bag and throw it out, or I'll grab a sweeping brush and sweep it out. I dont like them but I wouldnt say Im scared of them, Im afraid of spiders more than roaches! Although the worst thing is when you are in bed and all of a sudden you hear this sound of something running across the floor!

I got your point but then it is already useless right now here in our house even if you are not going to kill those roaches they are still more. Especially they are hiding inside the drainage then it happens that we have drainage outside the house.

Have you got that many then? Have you ever had it fumagated, or will they still get in? Im not afraid of them but I think if I had that many then I would be trying to move. Im sorry that you have to deal with this.

Wheneve there's a cockroach crawling around, i reach for slippers or newspaper or anything suitable i can use to smack it solid then i'll kill it then wrap it with newspaper and throw it in the garbage. I don't always use pesticides cuz these are pretty expensive.

Yeah aside from that fact that is expensive it is really stinky that you have to cover your nose aside from that it is poisonous at the same time.

I have never actually seen a real, live cockroach! I've seen a lot of kinds of bugs (spiders, centipedes, you name it) but never a real cockroach and luckily we've never had that problem around the house. I hear that they're hard to get rid of though. Perhaps hiring an exterminator is the best choice.

Wow you are lucky. It is really hassle and hard to get rid especially when cockroaches are inside the cabinet that has plates on it. Sometimes I found it inside the place of our spoon and forks! EEEWWW!!!

I am terrified of cockroaches. They are disgusting creatures. I kill them any way I can. We put bugs spray around our house often in the summer to keep all the bugs out. Who wants bugs in their house? not me.

I actually know somebody from the USA and heard that they want to see cockroaches since they haven't ever seen it. Oh my! I think if they are living here then their house would be like a forest already especially if they don't know how to fix things. Sometimes cockroach can ruin something especially your momentum when they are flying inside the house.
