  • Gross.. Depends on if it was killed with pesticides or not.. You should probably get rid of them before you let your child live there

  • I am sure she will be fine.. My ds ate a horsefly once. He was fine. You could call the ped. if it would make you feel better and ask them what to do.

  • If you live in the woods, it was probably a woodroach. Don't panic, just call the doctor and ask. I'm sure it's fine, but it can't hurt to call.
