cockroach and the toilet bowl

Huge 2 incher fell into the toilet bowl a few days ago. I couldn’t flush him down, somehow the bugger was able to hang on the side of the bowl. So I just left him in there to give me an opening… then yesterday, he did just that. He wandered to the far side and exposed himself. I took a shower hose and hosed him into the water. He was struggling mightily to swim back to porcelain ground but I wouldn’t budge. The water turned brownish from his coloring…. Then slowly flushed the toilet continually hosing him down with the shower hose. He drowned. RIP.

  1. Things roaches can’t get away from that are not too toxic to humans: 1. liquid soap (breaks the water tension, roach drowns) 2. bleach (includes mold & mildew spray) (dissolves outer protein shell, roach disintegrates), 3. dry boric acid powder (cuts outer shell, gets stuck in “lungs”, roach dehydrates).

  2. I didn’t know about the bleach technique. Boric acid worked great before when I lived on Hudson Street years ago. But can’t find that in Taipei. Not sure how the liquid soap works though…. these critters move fast!
