I think the state of the sheets would be the last thing on my mind if it had been me.

Leave the poor buggers alone. They eat the bad insects. I had those baby spiders crawl all over me without a problem as I know they will eat the cockies.

Cockroaches get a bad rap. They may look a bit nasty, but they are pretty harmless. They certainly won’t kill you with their bite or give you Ross River fever.

Go the cockroach!

You and me both, Pollster. I want a nice Huntsman for Christmas cos they eat the beggars!
These are different from UK cockies - they are brown, about 6-7 cm long, and they fly! :scared:
(and mine come up the plugholes in the bathroom !). However, also unlike UK ones, you can squash these and they die! Thats assuming you are brave enough to get near them.
You can buy some surface spray which stops them in their tracks when you spray them with it, they just curl up and die.
