So... we've had cockroach sightings in our kitchen before, but we've just come back from 10 days away and the kitchen is infested. I don't understand this because all food was put away and stored during our absence and no cooking has taken place there for eons, and moreover, our ayi has the place looking spotless. What's strange is that the cockroaches aren't even anywhere near where food is stored - I found one in the cutlery drawer, for example, and just now, I heated up a plate of food in the microwave and when I opened the door, a big fat juicy one crawled out. So...
a) how did the cockroach get into the microwave in the first place (the door was closed) (and I know it didn't go in with my plate of food) (at least I sure hope not)
and even grosser
b) why didn't the cockroach explode while the microwave oven was on?
More practically, does anyone have any tricks / tips for getting rid of cockroaches? Is there a local product that won't kill me or my newborn baby and still get rid of all these awful bugs?
Thanks for your tips.
