Really? Usually in a story like this, the roach is the only thing that survives.

/ hope everyone on the scene is OK

Ive had that happen. Shower demolition revealed a mud ants nest probly six feet tall and two around. Crowbar was laying on floor, bug spray can fell onto the crowbar, rupturing it. Cloud of gas finds water heater pilot on other side of wall. I found myself inside a ball of flame. It blew out one plexiglass window, nobody was hurt including me. A little lesson was learned about watching your surroundings was learned that day...

What the hell is with all these News tags in the last week or so? Most of this shiat doesn't deserve the tag.

Pesticides is to NYC cockroaches what a half jug of Gallo wine and Marvin Gaye album was to your mother in the late 70s.

When I was in college in Miami I used D-Con Roach Ender at my apartment.  I sprayed three sprays, one in front of the refrigerator and one on each side. When I came back from classes hours later there were hundreds of dead roaches all over the kitchen.  My snooty roommate was packing up her things so she could drive her Mercedes to Daddy's house on the beach.  She accused me of fumigating without her permission.  Best insecticide ever.

PSA: Please read and obey the instructions for use on *any* pesticide, especially those meant for indoor use. Your insurance agent will thank you for it, as will your landlord/mortgage holder.

No need far fogger when you can just use this to kill everything

You weren't being careless; you simply messed with the wrong colony.

/ and to think I made all that soap when all I needed was a few roach bombs

What the hell is wrong with these stupid morons.  You don't unleash a roach bomb when there are pets present, and I;m not sure they are even allowed to be used in apartment buildings when there are other occupied units.

Buttknuckle: So,  why were they bombing their apartment with a cat inside?


This. If you're so overbombing the place that it blows up, it very obviously is too much for any pet.

\don't know much about the NYC market, what does knowing about this big of a roach problem do to housing values in that building?

They really did set up this scenario in an early season.  Built a 1-room house, set up a source of ignition that could be activated remotely, and probably used multiple foggers.  Kaboom.
