I haven't seen it's ugly face since the first time I saw it...and it made another appearance tonight. Skittered right OVER the boric acid and AROUND the trap(s).

So...is it indeed a cockroach? A mutant cockroach?

And he was too quick for my bleach spray. AUGH.

I vote for turning off the lights so the room is dark for a while, then get the spray or bleach or whatever all ready to go, then turn on the lights and kill as many of them as you can before they scurry away. LOL.

Plug your drains at night and make sure the drain vents in your tubs are well covered. We had some in our old house living in the tub drain vent and they were able to squeeze out because it was loose. We poured boric acid down in the drain and made sure the cover was tight and that took care of the problem.
