I hate it's but I typically take the suck it up and kill the damn thing approach.
We live in a state with a warmer climate and I get my share of big spiders and ants and silver fish and so on... Annoying sometimes freaky.. Sure. But the one thing I can't handle is cockroaches. Haven't had an issue until the last two days... I was outside last night and saw one my front step and it ran into the bushes.
My new neighbor said " yeah we unfortunitly get tons of those water bugs around here".
Waterbug= American cockroach.
And tonight I flicked the back light one ań went out with the dog and three were hanging onto my screened in porch!!! I freaked out and got spray. Killed two and the third ran of into the grass.
Now lnow there is a neat for sure somewhere and I'm calling exterminator in the morning. Is it possible the neat is outside? I read that they like rain and it's been raining theee days straight here!! Still gross an damp out there. any chance the rai is what's causing all these sightjngs? I'm a very clean person (know for being a bit OCD when it comes to it. I vacuum almost daily and mop 2-3 times a week. Wipe down all surfaces multiple times a day and never leave dirty dishes or food out. But I have two cats and a new puppy so their food is the only thing out..
What else can I do to prevent them from coming in here?? Any ways ican kill the neat that may be outside?

I'm guessing you meant nest? I found this, which includes some homemade remedies. I used to use a variation of the borax one for ants. http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Roaches
