  • Yes... the AMERICAN cockroach. AKA the 'palmetto bug'. they are HUGE. Fortunately the live outside, and if they do come in, they usually die quickly... but in the summer, I swear you can't walk around under a tree without them dropping on you. OMFG.

  • Yes, there are bugs (overseas) that will inbed into your skin as small larvae and then mature into an almost one inch adult worm. When you try to pull them out of your skin they have claws that imbed into the inner wall of your skin to stop themselves from being removed from their "host', because this can be VERY painful the only way to kill them and get them out is to cover the hole (yes, they cause a huge gaping hole in your skin because they need oxygen to breath) and suffocate them. Once they are dead you use tweezers to pull the worm out of your body and you are left with a gaping oozing hole where the worm was. The hole can be so big that it will leave a scar.

    Cockroaches suck, but bugs that imbed into your body (ticks also) suck A LOT WORSE!!

  • EWWW! Gross, ladies! Lucky we have ole' Billy out there, to get rid of them for us. I can't even imagine a bug that would embed in my skin.
