First of all what is the difference? I don't think they are roaches because I only see one about once a week in my house. They are all huge, at least one to two inches in length. If we had roaches I think I would see all sizes but I don't.

Is there anything I can spray or do myself to keep these nasty looking creatures out? I practically have a heart attack when I see one. YUCK!!!!

Thanks

I have the same problem, as everyone else that lives near me. I believe they are called wood roaches. They seem to love the pine tree's. We get very few of them in the house, but somehow they do manage to get in.

The larger ones that you are seeing are waterbugs. I hate them too, and I'm a grown man. For on spot treatment, get the roach/ant killer (works just as good for waterbugs) in the yellow bottle by RAID. If your able to get to where you can spray the bug, he'll be dead in a few seconds.
