I previously wrote about my roach trials.... and learned entirely too much of the subject! Well, I'd begun to have a false sense of security. I haven't seen a dead nor live roach in about a week. I started going barefoot again. Not jumping at every movement I see out of the corner of my eyes. (Though, honestly, I still turn on lights before I go into a room.) But as I was heading upstairs, all that security came crashing down around my socked feet. There on my kitchen counter... was a roach!!! ACK!
Now, it's not like I live in a pigsty or anything. I'm really pretty clean. I rarely leave dishes in my sink. Put dirty items straight into the dishwasher. I don't leave food out or crumbs around. I disenfect regularly. So, it's not like there's a blinking sign saying, "Open all night". Perhaps they are just attracted to the possibility of water? Perhaps because it's been so hot, they seek shelter? Whatever the reason, I'm not really interested. What I am interested in, is for them to leave and NEVER come back!!!
Armed with my "knowledge", I felt secure in my ways of killing the creatures, but then I read this (see below) yesterday. Oy!!
