Ewww... its not even a contest..... ROACHES. I mean MY GOD.................... how could such foul things even EXIST????? WHY??? They carry disease, some fly, they fly in your hair and wave those bigass entennaes in your face and stare with those big black eyes and they crawl on you when you sleep............. not annoying..... CREEPY. Nightmare fuel. A better thread, would have been to compare roaches and spiders. AAAHH!!! Spiders are just a little worse!!!!

Well since I don't live around roaches and I literally never see them, I'll go with flies.

#9 Posted by CountBleck12 (22637 posts) -

I don't see that much roaches in my home so I would say flies.

WHY DO YOU STAY IN THE SAME HOUSE AS THAT????? [spoiler] Oh yeah, because you are 21, jobless, have no money and living in your parents basement with no where else to live. [/spoiler]

for the most part they keep to themselves. they dont really bother me at all. but if i see one, i will kill the sh!t out of it. fvcking creepy as sh!t.

i dont even think they are harmful i think they actually kill spiders and sh!t, but i dont care, they look creepy as fvck.

[spoiler] when you put it that way it sounds worse than it is. i gave up my room and took the basement, so my niece would have a room to sleep in. i watch my niece while my parents work, so they dont have to pay the high prices of daycare. and i help my parents around the house and such. Drive my sister around when my parents cant.

im not a lazy loser, like your spoiler makes it seem like. [/spoiler]

Roaches definitely bug me more than flies.
#16 Posted by Vari3ty (11111 posts) -

Annoying? Flies, no contest here. Roaches are kind of disgusting but they don't usually bother me, whereas a fly will follow you around constantly and do seemingly everything it can to annoy you until you manage to kill it. Ever get bit in the back of the neck when swimming by a horse fly? Those things are nasty.

Roaches. I can't stand them, they make my skin crawl. Just today I found a huge-ass roach in my dining room, due to the colder weather outside.

Im not as aware of your life as a lot of people in OT seem to be.......... well giving up your room for your niece and taking care of her is a great thing to be doing, beyond awesome actually.

I have already stated this, in this very thread. I hate those bastards. They fly in my face, wave those bigass entennaes in my face and stare at me with those black eyes...... creepy as hell. Nightmare fuel for sure.
#22 Posted by mitu123 (153911 posts) -

Roaches by far, they crawl everywhere, always try to go after the food, will always come back as an annoyance, etc.

#23 Posted by MrGeezer (56098 posts) -
Flies. At least if you encounter a roach, they usually have the sense to run away from you and stop annoying you. But god help you if you get a fly in your room. They'll hover in front of your TV, buzz around your ears, and then they only hide once you get up to kill them. And then you can't find them, so you give up and sit back down. And then as soon as that happens, they come right back out and start annoying you again.

Flies..............

#25 Posted by tocool340 (20483 posts) -
Flies come in pairs and can be dealt with by a swing of a fly swatter. Roaches come in swarms numbering the hundreds if they find a place to breed and must be dealt with strategically. So my choice is roaches by a long shot....

Ewww... its not even a contest..... ROACHES. I mean MY GOD.................... how could such foul things even EXIST????? WHY???

CREEPY. Nightmare fuel. A better thread, would have been to compare roaches and spiders. AAAHH!!! Spiders are just a little worse!!!!Kevlar101
I'd just like to point out that the reputation roaches have for spreading disease is vastly overstated. For starters, they're meticulous cleaners, and they groom themselves constantly. So most of the filth and germs that they walk over and get on their bodies is eaten by them during the grooming process. Also, they don't like to travel far to find a food source. So outside of the occasional roach that sneaks into your home when you open the front door, you're generally not going to have roaches in your home unless your home is just plain dirty. And in that case, they're actually doing you a service, because they're eating the filth and crap in your home that otherwise has a far greater potential to make you sick. But in any case, the chances of a roach walking over roadkill or garbage and then making you sick by walking on your ham sandwich is EXTREMELY unlikely. Again...they pick up germs for sure, but they are CONSTANTLY cleaning themselves off. You're probably not going to have a roach spread roadkill germs onto your ham sandwich unless you've already got rotting animal carcasses in your kitchen.

Roaches aren't magical beings, they still need to eat. If you're encountering SWARMS of roaches, then the roaches aren't really the problem. The problem is that your home is just filthy as $***.

No. Try the thousands.

Nope, but thanks for assuming sh1t as usual. House was CLEAN, where you see two to three roaches on SOME nights. Not sure why but the roach population BOOMED, with the house still clean. Even after we set off foggers it only took a week to once again feel their presence. Don't know how they're surviving but it isn't from filthiness. So try again....

It IS due to filthiness, period. I'm not saying that you're lying. You probably just aren't aware of the filth. It's probably in the walls or attic or something, where you can't see it. But I don't have to assume anything. Roach populations simply DON'T explode without a food source, that'd be biologically impossible. And also, like I previously stated, roaches (unlike flies) generally don't like to stay out in the open and annoy the hell out of you. Roaches generally like to stay hidden under cover and in the shadows. Absent the case of a stray roach just happening to run into your home when you get home from work, seeing two or three roaches doesn't mean you've got two or three roaches. If seeing roaches in your home is any kind of regular or semi-regular occurence, and ESPECIALLY if you're seeing up to three roaches in a single night, then you've got a LOT more than three roaches living in your home. I'm talking about dozens, at least. And they didn't just happen to wander in, they're actually LIVING there. Complete with an adequate food source and a means and willingness to reproduce. And yes...dozens of roaches can easily turn into a $***load of roaches. Given a food source and nothing to kill them off, those things breed like rabbits. You don't know why the roach population boomed, but I do. It's because your roach problem is a lot worse than you know, there's enough filth somewhere in your home for roaches to eat and breed unchecked, and that's why you've got a ****load of roaches coming out of the goddamned walls.

Roaches used to be nasty, 7 roach rush, mass roach all ins etc., but it's actually quite easy to deal with them as Terran. So I guess flies?

#35 Posted by Overlord93 (12602 posts) -
Never seen a roach other than on TV, but they seem pretty gross so them.
#36 Posted by jun_aka_pekto (15910 posts) -

Roaches tend to hide and can be killed with a well-aimed blow from my flip flops. Flies will happily buzz around me and are harder to hit. So.... flies it is.

During summer times over here. Flies.

Other than that. ROACHES YUCK.

#41 Posted by TAMKFan (32726 posts) -

I like never see roaches around here. I'll go with flies. Although, flies aren't very common at all here either, thankfully.

#42 Posted by PiscesChick93 (10687 posts) -

Roaches, rarely see them thankfully but they are just gross

Just couple days ago I went into my room to get something and on the wall above my bed was this wood roach the size of an egg. I ran to get a hand-vac and when I went to get him he was gone. The f*cker was hiding in one of my blankets. I think my answer is obvious. _

[QUOTE="MrGeezer"] It IS due to filthiness, period.

No need to waste my time reading the rest of that sh1t. All I need to do is read that one line to know where exactly you are about to turned this argument into after I said otherwise... And FYI, a while back I found a way to sustain the roach population to where its no longer a problem but still requires me to take an active role in keeping their numbers low. Even after a thorough cleaning, they still seem to be a nuisance. So covering the sink drains with stoppers so they won't get any water helped. Placing sticky strips with bait next to some cracks in the wall helped. We don't even use the attic so that shouldn't be a problem and they will most likely become meals to a few hobo spiders in the basement before they can find anything to eat down there. Its definitely an outside food supply as far as I'm concern though I don't know where....

Roaches no question. They are disgusting and they are so smart...
