first, just so you know, cockroaches will NOT die during a long flight. I had always believed they did as I thought the luggage was in a freezing temperature during the flight.
Hubby unpacked during the day, putting away new clothes etc in his cupboards.
I started unpacking tonight, and what did I find? A very live and happy baby roach.
Our motel had roaches, and no spraying could get rid of them. We were super careful all the time, never left our luggage unzipped, and shook all our stuff before we packed them. All our purchases were kept in the back of our car until it came time to pack. Oh and we checked and re-checked for roaches before leaving - or so we thought.
We left our luggage in the car for a night when we arrived to Finland just to make sure.
And after all this, a roach. I do not believe it was the only one. Or, let´s say I am morbidly terrified it was not the only one.
What on earth do I do now?
My luggage is having a nice sauna right now, with all my laundry + new clothes + hubby´s empty (?) luggage.
We do not have cockroaches in Finland, and I do not know what to do. We have three cats, so I cannot just start spraying everywhere, not that I have anything to spray with or even know if roach poison is available in Finland.
Any ideas? Please?
The thought of roaches infesting our home is like something out of a horror movie for me.
Otherwise, our holiday was lovely.
