God almighty I am fed up with the endless infestations.
I found a largeish brownish reddish beetle type creature - about the size of a wasp - this morning in the kitchen that was running too fast for me to catch it. I only found one but am now paranoid it's cockroaches.
just bumping because I googled cockroaches and it looked a bit like that
WTF do I do?
I'm actually better with insects than with mice. I hated the mouse infestion(s) but I think my nanny will freak more at the latest problem - she's much more upset about the insect than she was about the mice...
I think you can get a "sticky trap" from a hardware shop if you're really worried. Put it near where you saw it......and wait! If there's any more you'll soon find out. If not, perhaps it was just visiting.
