    This is probably the greatest thing about living in Canada. I've never met anyone with a roach problem.
    Ya, but Canada has its fair share of 'Kingston bugs', which might be even worse (but at least they eat cockroaches).

    Hmm that is fascinating re: the grocery bags. I do have a collection of them in an otherwise unused closet. Will throw them out tomorrow. Thanks!

    You can bring them, or their eggs in, accidentally. And if they happen to be brought into an area with some food residue, it's like the freaking roach bordello. I had an infestation and I run a pretty clean house. Read up on cockroach life cycles, various control methods, etc. Research done, I went freaking nuclear on them and killed them all off in 3 mos, and at the worst at night I would see thirty or so when I turned on the light in the kitchen. Haven't seen a roach here since '01.

    So you might have just picked a few up. If they are not established, you're fine. I would suggest, however, getting the type of baited traps that interfere with their genetic coding and screw up their ability to reproduce, and setting a few where you found these two to hopefully poison any siblings and reduce the possibility of an exponential population increase. It's easier to stop an infestation than eradicate one.

    On the other hand, if you are in a dorm or an apartment they could be coming from your floormates. Which would suck.

    Might want to check your inner ears and throat. Cockroaches may have already existed in your living quarters for the last few weeks. They start becoming bold and coming out in the open when they have saturated their hiding places.

    Check your ears and throat for any latched nested eggs. Don't let them get to deep into your inner ear lest you wind up with a half grown dead roach in your cerebrum. You will notice this first with an itch in your head but then later with a consistent headache at the spot where he r.I.p.

    Place a time elapse camera over your bed at night in infrared and you will see at about the 1am-4am mark how the roaches travel across your sheets to their various centers and refuges. You will see their systematic trails going across your body, through your sheets, in one ear and out the other, some even detouring through your anus and out your mouth for the quickest path to their sanctuaries while at the same time being able to commensally pick up residual food off and inside your body.

    ok conne?

    You're talking gene warfare + Conne? The roaches will end up 5 feet tall and value his friendship but just not see him "that way".

    This is the only good thing about being homeless. No bugs in my car.

    The other weekend I was washing my car in my parents' driveway, and when I pulled the car into the garage to vacuum the inside, there was a dead mouse under it. It hadn't been run over or anything, it was just laying there dead.

    Also, there are mice in one of my classrooms (at least one has been sighted multiple times). Is it possible that a mouse got into my bag, hopped into my car, hung out there for a few days, and decided to drop dead under it while I washed it?

    Or could it be a field mouse that somehow decided to go die under my car? Or was it living under there? (I usually park in a back yard that's pretty much a clearing in a forest).

    No idea, but my mom is convinced the mouse was living in my car and I brought it home.

    Wow Conne I am surprised. I always figured you loved anything and everything with any sort of affiliation with the word "cock".

    I keep a very clean apartment. What is drawing them in? It's really grossing me out. They are small, thank god, but still.
