Embrace the Ick

Think of something that truly repulses you. Hold that thought until your skin squirms. Now, write a glowing puff piece about its amazing merits.

Katsaridophobia – That is the what the fear of cockroaches is called.  But for me more than the fear is the dislike/disgust at these creatures.  They crawl up from nooks and corners in your home and can survive extreme conditions.

Both my wife and daughter scream for my help when they see one and dare not go anywhere near it.

They are disgusting because they are difficult to get rid off, they can sometimes fly and  they can keep on multiplying in numbers.

For me the most effective way of dealing with a cockroach is by spraying baygon on them.   They will flip over,  and will run helter-skelter till they succumb to the effects of the insecticide.
