Eewwwhh!Gross! I just have to tell you this story about what happened to me yesterday - reminding me that we live in a farm shed. I popped my hand into the bag of dried apricots and pulled out two - one went into my mouth and I was just about to put the other one in when something caught my eye....a cockroach! What worried me was - you know the old adage - see one cockroach and there are 20 more behind the wall - was the one I saw part of a twosome and I had just eaten its mate???? Oh I feel sick just thinking about it.
Funny thing is - when we moved out of our house before we went to Ecuador and came into the shed -I had the thought that it would condition me for all the bugs I would meet over there. Hah! I am telling you I did not see one cockroach the whole time we were there!

Alice you are on to a good idea for us re the house. Not sure about needing protein from a cockroach though!
