If it makes you feel any better, roaches are incredibly clean for bugs. They’re kind of like rabbits or raccoons, constantly cleaning themselves.

Could have been worse, it could have been this guy!

Well, they’re not necessarily attracted to “dirty.”

They’re attracted to food, which is what quite obviously brought him in. You’re not dirty, you just had good taste in nom noms

@CakeyP:  You are a better bee than I am!!  I have been known to kill a roach or two, but I’ve been more or less know to trap under a cup and wait for SO to get home.

Can’t help it, bugs freak me out lol!!!

Back when I lived in NYC, I would spray the living hell out of roaches with raid, and then <i>vacuum</i> the mofos up.

@CakeyP:   Lol. My SO has been known to pull a makeshift flame thrower on bugs: an aerosol can and a lighter.

Ugh I hate roaches.  When I lived in the Caribbean my apartment backed on to a wooded area, and we had roaches all. the. time.  And those things could fly!  We had a giant can of bug spray, so if I saw one first I would spray the crap out of it while FI grabbed a shoe to smash it.  

Once I didn’t spray one enough, and as I was running away to get FI the thing was flying after me!!
