    Oh, your HOUSE has a roach infestation. I came into this thread thinking YOU had 'em all over your body like lice or ticks.

    Try boring them to death by subjecting them to repetitive, pointless threads.

    Nuke the site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

    Yeah, that should shock and awe the little suckers back to the Mesopotamian era?

    But wait, didn't they survive nuclear bombs ?
    What I am particularly concerned about is the problem of mutation.
    What we absolutely don't want is a roach-zilla.
    Nobody wants 100 meter long roaches in NYC.

    I have actually seen the fire department in the US do a controlled burn of a property to get rid of roaches before. This video is even funnier though. It's the same house, but a different vid.

    I love it when the guy says "how can you live like this?" and the guy who lives there says "it's not pleasant". LOL.

    But be sure to first engage them in peaceful, bilateral discussions with a possible neutral moderator.

    War should always be the last option, if at all.

    Orkin has roach traps that will make a roach carry the poison into their feeding ground and share it. so the entire hive will die off

    Gas your apt for a day, while you stay at a hotel. Seal up all cracks in the walls, cabinets, floors with silicone/caulk. Leave a couple roach traps out (for those cracks you may have missed).

    Does this thread have anything to do with "December 21, 2012: End of the World."

    Or "Rise of the Planet of Cockroaches. (2011)"

    Should we be worried considering its almost October !!! :shock:

    Nothing will deter me !

    "Unless the roaches were contaminated with some bacteria or other pathogens, I don't think that cockroaches would be unsafe to eat," said Michael Adams, professor of entomology at the University of California at Riverside, who added that he has never heard of someone dying after consuming roaches. "Some people do have allergies to roaches," he said, "but there are no toxins in roaches or related insects."

    None of the other contestants became ill, the sheriff's office said.

    I keep cleaning sprays everywhere. If I see an insect, I spray at them first. It slows down their heart rate and calms them down, before I wipe them away.

    Cooking them properly, or deep-frying them should make them safe to eat, although there may be some vitamin loss.

    Toss them in with some salad and you're good to go. They could make a great turkey filling too!

    I had a chocolate coated grasshopper once. Tasted like mint :?

    [EDIT]

    The grasshopper I mean, the chocolate wasn't mint flavoured.

    Lots of nasty insects and bugs like to move and create havoc with increasing temps.
