How do we get rid of them?
Best way to get rid of them is to keep clean and don't have trash standing smelling (that's what attracts them). That being said, you'll always have the occasional roach wandering by, but it doesn't happen that often.
I've heard they don't care for incense
1. mantain your house clean, without traces of food or garbage.
2. mix boric acid (it's a powder), with condensed milk or peanut butter (plain sugar also works)
2. put the mix in plastic bottle caps.
3. leave the caps all over the house.
be careful if you have pets, they could it the poisonous mix.
change the poison/caps if needed
the roaches will eat the poison and dehydrated.
it's common to see more of them just because they will panic and look for water
plus: if the roaches eat the dead body of a poisoned roach, they will die also
it's not a fast process but it works great
fuck those bitches
*be careful if you have pets, they could EAT the poisonous mix.
Throw an apple at them
No that's for doctor infestations.
It works for garden gnomes, too.
Roaches are pollinators. Man up and learn to tolerate them
There is a considerable amount of possums in my neighborhood. Do those help? I see one of these buggers every day
Throw them out of NATO.
If you picture them as a dumb neighbor maybe it will help.
>Blocks your path
pretty sure mosquitoes are way worse lifeforms than cockroaches
both are the worst.
mosquitos at least have enough respect not to enter my home
if you put all the cockroaches in the world in an inescapable island would they function as an ecosystem?
They are everywhere in Asia. I was chocked the first time
Send weapons to Serbia.
Just leave it to me, boss.
get a handful of these lil bros and release them in your house
IN his house?
wall geckos are based af
I started leaving pieces of cooked rice on the wall they hang out on after seeing one of them take out a kissing bug
there's so many of these around my house, they're cute and help a lot with insects! god bless latam
Where can I get summ?
depends on where you live
anywhere south of the globe they usually just find their way inside your house and chill
up north you might not find them anywhere since they can't survive the cold
check your local pet shop
Thank you, lizard sage
The roach species in OP are as big as the average house gecko (minus tail), they’re only capable of eating the nymphs.
I love these little guys, where I lived I had a lot of fucking giant cockroaches, then some months later these cute motherfuckers came around and entered my house, problem solved.
They are so smart, too. They know how to silently hunt without getting in your way and won't run towards your shadow for cover like cockroaches. I wish more of them showed up in my kitchen at night.
will these little guys survive if there are stray cats in my neighborhood?
Depends on how much cover there is. Cats do tend to kill a lot of them, but they’re also decent enough at lurking out of reach if there are spots available.
It’s just anecdotal, but I’ve regularly seen maybe 2 or so house geckos on the second floor windows of a building in an area that definitely has several dozens of stray cats. Compared to a place an hour away that has maybe two or three outdoor cats, but the average front porch each has 1-2 dozen geckos visible at night.
You gotta grill the cats
Seriously. Fuck cats.
I hate these fuckers so goddamn much. I bought a new house a few months ago that was otherwise in impeccable condition, but these fuckers started showing up everywhere after I moved in. A jug of raid perimeter spray, a box of roach poison tabs, and a few months later I *think* they're finally gone but the paranoia is here to stay, especially with my wife who I constantly have to console about them/their existence.
I had a few of these bros show up in my garage after I sprayed poison and I hope they are okay 🙁
I live in a warm country and my house has a lot of these wall geckos. They do not eat cockroaches but they eat a lot of moths so they're not too bad. What does eat a lot of cockroaches based on what I have personally seen are huntsman spiders. Those creepy looking motherfuckers have developed a taste for large ass roaches.
I don’t think they can kill cockroaches
I used to have a cockroach infestation until one summer a few of these appeared and they got rid of the cockroaches. Never saw a single one since.
I have seen multiple of them chocking on cockroaches, and they attack them, if you see a cockroach that looks drunk, it was probably attacked by one of these
I saw a very big one of these guys, like twice the size of a cockroach, it was probably being able to eat them
I use a type of silica powder that bruise roaches and red ants pathways
Y'know, I've noticed an infestation here. Everywhere I look, in fact. Nothing but undeveloped, unevolved, barely conscious pond scum, totally convinced of their own superiority as they scurry about their short, pointless lives.
Lizards. Lizards everywhere
Easy. Develop a CRISPR sequence that targets a critical gene unique to cockroaches. Wrap that protien sequence in 100 levels of CRISPR sequences and then introduce a couple hundred "infected" individuals to all the isolated breeding populations around the world. Wait for the CRISPR gene to propagate over 100 generations. Since the CRISPR gene forces itself into the next generation instead of the normal 50/50 chance of standard sexual re combination, its guaranteed to be inherited by every member of the population. Now that every member carries the gene, just wait for the 100 cycle sequence to run out and then blammmo! every cockroach dies roughly within the same generation. Every cockroach within the targeted species that is. This is called gene driver technology and it already exists.
What could go wrong ?
Mister funny shoes
A man of culture I see
Is there any chance that an mRNA vaccine could insert this into the human population?
Nope. At least, not by mRNA in particular.
No, but technically yes. The problem is that the mRna vaccine must be delivered to the reproductive gametes or their stem cells. In particular the ones that go on to fertilize. A couple of doses of vaccine are unlikely to effect enough of sperm or egg cells to have a real chance at carrying over to the next gen. Maybe if you recieved your injection straight in the balls. But might be a little noticable. Plus there is the problem of an /AN enthusiast reproducing in the first place.
I have no idea but this sounds very bad:
>The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation invested $75 million in gene drive technology.
In english doc
it's impossible, all life on earth could perish but bugs would survive
ants are serious motherfuckers I tell you what
dear lord nature never fails to horrify
I hear these fuckers can eat through tinfoil. Just how much stronger are we gonna allow them to get until we do something??
What're we gonna do? Nukem?
Order this. And a small vile of "growth regulator". Get a pump sprayer and follow all the instructions/directions/warnings.
You can't go wrong and they will die die die
We send them to mars
Ask Sam Hyde
cockroaches are very very based
They're the s.oyjaks of bugs
Spiders in every corner
I hate these pieces of shit so much and living in an apartment with filthy neighbors that attract them
Build a massive can of Raid in space and spray the entire planet
i don't like this idea. it would also kill benign critters.
Think of how many (trillions?) are in new york.
Now think about if they weren't there.
Everything they ate would still be in new york.
I don't care. I must do away with them
new york can have more feet of garbage and detritus than snow in winter for all i care
>Everything they ate would still be in new york
What would happen if roaches and mouses versed?
Surely the rats would wipe the roaches from the face of the earth
Tell the chinese they help you get an erection
They don't call 'em COCKroaches for nothin'.
Nature's perfect little exterminator.
How about in the desert tho?
