How do I get rid of cockroaches? Should I call an exterminator?

@ElvieKerwin,
draw them a map and leave bread crumbs leading to your neighbor's house.

@ElvieKerwin,
I would hire an exterminator. Bought a house many years ago, didn't know about cockroaches until we took possession of the house flipped the kitchen light on and the counter tops looked like the Indy 500. Exterminator treated the house twice and sprayed the yard so they wouldn't hide at the neighbors and return after the coast was clear. We were very young and had never lived in a roach infested place, it's gross.

@ElvieKerwin,
Create a slave army of roaches to do your bidding!!

Mad scientists turn roaches into cyborgs, control them with Kinect, laugh at nature

@Ragman,
Sorry, missed that. I guess I shouldn't pick thru a2k when I have heating pad on my neck. Just a muscle spasm, but the heat lulls me into a very mellow (albeit not alert) state. It's so relaxing. Uh, the heating pad, not the bot.

@ElvieKerwin,
Why would you want to get rid of cockroaches? They make wonderful pets.

@edgarblythe,
Hey, Edgar, I think that's the same group I saw on Dancing with the Stars.

They were doing the Mexican Hat Dance and singing:

La cucaracha, la cucaracha,
ya no puede caminar
porque le falta, porque no tiene
marihuana pa' fumar.

Ya murió la cucaracha
ya la llevan a enterrar
entre cuatro zopilotes
y un ratón de sacristán.


Thanks for the heads up, Andy.

Cockroaches (long may their tribe increase) of all the various wildlife genera should hold the place of honor on the endangered species list. When the last of them is gone we'll all have been history for a long, long time. The last rat will crawl out of the final sewer and give up the ghost before the cockroaches even began to fizzle out.

Roaches adapt quickly. Not so many years ago, I exterminated my house with a sweetened home made bait. Last time I tried that it did not work. Then I read on line that roaches have evolved to avoid that sweet stuff.

@Debacle,
Apparently cock roaches have a sense of when something has been irradiated, it borrows beneath it.

2 things will exist after the atomic bomb that destroys mankind:

cock roaches
and
Cher

I went to Cincinnati once. It was closed.

Or was that Philly?

@ElvieKerwin,
I have heard as a home remedy to put out pans of red wine...they drink it and die and it will slowly kill them off...the worst thing you can do is step on them and such because the eggs can still breed...I would try that before calling an exterminator, and if it doesn't work I would call one...

I realize this poster may be a spammer, but good to post anyways...

@Lustig Andrei,
Well shut my mouth! You were almost here. Not plum, but pert nigh. Go to Louisville (Lu-ah-vul, as we say) did ya? You'd remember if you did. City of beautiful horses and fast women. And bourbon.

And a few cockroaches.

@Debacle,
I was stationed at Ft. Knox fer a spell. You bet we went to Louisville weekends. I flew into Louisville Airport that year (whatever year it was -- in the 1960s, anyway) on Kentucky Derby Day. Had to circle the airport for half an hour while all the private gamblers' jets took off. The race had just ended. I was in uniform. It was literally impossible for a man in uniform to buy a drink in any of the airport lounges. Just belly up to the bar, order yer poison and someone who had made a killing on the Derby had already picked up your tab. Ahh, those days will never come again.

@Lustig Andrei,
The heck you were! You'll probably recall the bus station at 7th & Broadway. It was full of grunts on the weekends. I went to college three blocks from there on 4th Street. I was in Louisville from '62 to '66.

Were you at Ft. Knox for boot camp (Misery, Agony and Heartbreak) or guarding the gold stash?
