    Ants won't kill, roaches will if they contaminate your food. Though we don't see roaches every other day, when we see one, probably there's an infestation spot somewhere and more will appear soon sometimes all at the same time.

    Numbers come in 10s and 20s pack when you get a infestation hit. And sometimes it's not because your house host them but your neighbor or the stupid dump yard below...

    Hmm interesting. Recently completed 2 pest control courses in Singapore. During the session on cockroaches, the lecturer told of rumours of a method in which the leftover residue in the cup after drinking coffee could be smeared over surfaces in corners of the kitchen, the roaches would die shortly after eating it. How effective it is, I don't know, no extensive field trials have been done.

    Cockroaches I will use newspapers & insecticide.

    But wat I really hate are lizards, especially those fat big ones
    I know they are not pests but I just hate them, especially in my old house where sometimes at night you can hear the sounds they make.
    So fat & big, dunno wat to do, most of the time I will sweep them into a dustbin, tie up & throw away.

    Lizards are your friendly neighborhood policeman. They cull spiders, ants and roach nymphs... although I sometimes think lizards are communist though... keeping the population of others in control by law...

    One very easy way to kill a cockroach is to drown it with
    its own weight.

    If you see one , you immediately to the following

    1. Squeeze a tablespoon of dishwashing liquid onto a cup or
    plastic water cup.

    2. Turn on the tap to add water and mix the solution.

    3. Pour this solution into your toilet bowl.

    4. Catch the drop the roach into the bowl,

    The dishwashing liquid will destroy the water tension
    of the insect and it will sink and drown very fast.

    Its best not to squash the insect because of the many
    bad microbes it contains when the splattered abdomen
    goes all over the place. It will also release a horrible smell
    when the fatty tissue is splattered, it is the defence of the
    insect.

    Spraying insecticide is also bad for health , kids, pets
    etc.. and Expensive.

    The american cockroach has withstood huge amounts
    of radiation enough to kill a human. But it needs oxygen.
