What do you think about people who have roaches?

Like do you think they can help it? Like I think that people can control it. I've heard people say " well they're poor and/or they're disabled and all they can afford is the ghetto or they can't afford pest control. Is that just an excuse? Or do you think if they really wanted to be roach free they would ?

depends on where they live.

When we lived in Hawaii, nothing kept the roaches out...they were even in the house before we moved in

 Roaches can torment anyone......they know no boundaries.

We have had roaches before. BAD and they are so so so hard to get rid of. If I see more than 5 in this new house I will bomb it right away.

Sometimes roaches can infest a building and there is not much you as a tenant can do about it.  A professional exterminator has to get into the walls.

We live in south texas. Roaches happen. Even in spotless homes.

I've had them BAD... I lived in a duplex and a new family moved into the other side of it and a month later we were infested. I firmly believe they brought them, but I can't prove it or know if that's really even possible. We got rid of them though, so yeah I think at least more often then not they can be controlled.

It depends....is their house clean and giving the impression that they're trying to fight the roaches off or is the house nasty and it looks as if they're running a roach hotel.

Some people really can't afford it.

I know when I was younger, we were so so so poor.  Our neighbors had roaches and they would come through the walls some how, apartments, and then we had roaches.  When the neighbors moved, so did the roaches lol

Demographically

This happened from when I was 5-6years old, my mom was 20-21(had me very young), my mom was super low income, for 3 months or more I know we had no electricity and so we had no hot water, no perishable food or food that had to be cooked.  We were super duper poor back then.  Luckily my grandma lived a 10 minute walk away and we would go to her house every night to eat.

So paying for an exterminator, wasn't going to happen.
