shock ARRRRGGGHHHH! What should I do? I feel sick. What if they have got in the house? They were on the inside at the top. I'm sure they were cocroaches. They were dark brown and had a hard shell. The council are supposto empty the bin tomorrow, I've moved it further away from the house. Do I have to get a professional out to clean the bin? I've never had this problem before. sad.

If it was me, I would beg the binman to check that they are gone after emptying the bin, then I'd don the rubber gloves and bleach the bin, and the area around it.

Maybe give the binman a fiver?

Poor you.

I've phoned the council up and complained as they do not empty the bins regularly, not even every two weeks. They are sending an inspector out to have a look (barf!). Magggots last month, cocroaches this month, bets are on for what I find next month.
