Abandon Ship

I give up. The cockroaches win. I'm leaving the house until Ibis gets off work and can deal with this. I killed four smaller ones and shot a 2 incher off the deck, but at least four got away from me in the cabinets.

If you don't hear from me in 24 hours, please send backup.

You poor thing! That's the one thing that scares me about living in better weather: BUGS!

Oiy, bugs!

*hugs*

I don't blame you...I'd be outta there, too. Here's hoping you can get those little nasties taken care of, soonest.

I'm with you. We have them here and I make the hubby take care of them. They're disgusting.

Good luck!

I'll send my husband and the cat. They're my personal roach-control team and when they're not snoozing, they do a pretty good job.

As a bonus, my husband can also remove bees.

i'm still battling cockroaches too, although i *think* we've managed to exterminate some of them.

Thanks everyone. I stayed away until my husband got home from work, then I avoided the kitchen. *shudders*

cockroaches have to be about the ugliest bug on the planet. I'd run for my life too.. LOL

I think it's all connected...you probably had the bat because he thought he found a bug buffet! Next time, ask him to swoop lower and grab a few roaches, too. Of course, in a perfect world, there would be no next time. ;)

I thought about that with the bat. For all his bluster, he didn't do much good!
