I meant the T's when I was talking about cleanliness etc. Though you CAN say those things about roaches too....well roaches do poop more than T's. If you are interested in pet roaches Lobsters are probably not the way you want to go. Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches on the other hand:







They are huge, slow moving, non-invasive, and calm. They also hiss which is cute.

Very cool! Makes me want to get one. Chances are slim though because my mom hates both tarantulas and roaches
My mom hates T's too. I had to wait till I moved out. Worth it!

Yuck. If I saw a roach in my house I'd be sickened. I LOVE seeing spiders in my house, because they eat all the nasty bugs!! My other half is scared over spiders (some tough guy, yes?) so whenever he sees one he yells for me to come get it, then he freaks because I will simply pick it up in my bare hands and toss it outside. Spiders are cool, roaches are gross! Should be put up a poll??

i used to think of roaches as meaning if you had them you were a tramp,and your house
was minging,however as i have reptiles and frogs i am exempt.

sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have

Ok, we'll do a poll. How do you set up a poll within an already existing thread?? (Some moderator I am )
