Had rats in my kitchen. Woke up one night with a roach on my mouth. The rats were more expensive and difficult to deal with but man, that very bad roach feeling has stuck with me. I know someone who had to go to the ER after one got stuck alive in her ear at night. Sweet dreams.
In our last house we had an air vent directly above the bed. One night we’re laying there and I hear some noise coming out of the vent. Five seconds later a palmetto bug lands on my chest. I’ll take a single rat in the kitchen.
