    Perhaps you have got no idea what diseases these disgusting creatures carry with them- it'll realized your wildest dreams on what you see on National Geographic or Discovery that applies only to 3rd world countries. They carry stuffs like dysentery, gastroenteritis, typhoid and poliomyeliti that almost guarantees your maximum nightmare and have you wishing that you'd bought an apartment next to a hospital.

    Not to mention they give off a disgusting smell (aggregation pheromone) that makes a bad mix of Dettol and Toilet cleaning acid (Ammonia) a high class perfume.

    Not just they're disgusting when they're alive, so are they when you decide to crush them. In Kampong (village) days, where the ground is soil or grass, stepping on one will just fulfill 'from dust you come, and so will you return..."; nowadays it's all concrete, ceramic and marble floorings. Stepping on them and the disgusting mess gets bigger with all the roach juice splattering all over and having you no place to rub off that gum on the sole of your foot off. I simply refuse to mop clean a roachy fiesta with extra cheese.

    I can't imagine who would allow an escapee... and I'd simply got no idea why we need these disgusting bugs in our eco system when we'd already enough bugs to get it going...

    You reminded me of the village stories my mum used to tell me. Each household usually keep some live poultry. And when they see a roach, they'll let go their house representative (the hungriest chicken or duck) to gobble them up...

    Wah, so much drama!

    I'll just catch the cockroach using tissue paper, wrap it up, and flush it down the toilet. End of story. No mess, and your house is pest-free again.

    I hate & scared of cockroaches a lot too... but as i grew up & older, brave enough to smack it with a roll of newspaper, if it doesn't dies i'll spray some incecticide on it... usually i will also make sure that it has died & dispose off it before i can set my mind at ease... I won't let it run away to hide somewhere... my mind then will think abt it the whole night, cannot sleep well...

    If you really can't find them in Singapore, please let me know and I will get them for you. If I do remember correctly, each should cost around $10.

    I think SPCA applies to animals. But that doesn't stop you from forming SPCI though.

    Roaches aren't classified as pests for no reasons...

    A previous encounter with a German cockroach taught me how cunning these scums can be. After spraying some gas the dirtbag ran to the corner of one of my cabinet to lay it's egg afterinwhich it made another dash 90 degrees... probably thinking I blind to see the decoy...

    Seems like these scumbags have some kind of intelligence....

    speaking of intelligence...i been killing roaches everywhere i c them...i did some personal research...roaches in singapore haf 2 type...street type n dosmetic type... street type usefully are faster n longer legs...due to running ard the rough terrain their body are higher from the ground...i tink muz be becoz outside terrain too rough n their body cannot take the abrasion...tats y they evolve...n longer legs they run faster...muz dosmetic type are different...they are slower n shorter legs...their body are lower to the ground... becoz our hse are mostly tiles flooring so they dun need worry abt hurting their body... also shorter legs n slowly...they dun need run much to find food...it's juz a short distance in the garbage bag...fancinating creature...highly adaptable...yet freaking annoying n destructive...

    You guys make it sound like you have a lot of cockroaches inside your house. I very seldom find cockroach in my house, but I find ants more of a nuisance.
