Roaches, the great survivors

It's true. They never completely die, do they?

Yesterday we discovered our first set of roaches in the new place. Small ones, no goliath flying types yet. But still a sign that perhaps, this place is now truly a home instead of just a property to live in.

Today we bought some roach bait/traps, along with the old standby of Baygon. Unfortunately I think the version now being produced is a bit more like a spa treatment to the bugs... Say what you will about how toxic the old stuff was, it was effective at incapacitating any roach, fly or moth that was wandering around.

But now we have this product that's supposedly safer for the environment. Que sera, sera.

It's not even being made in Barbados anymore... now it's Mexico, of all places.
