Palmetto Bugs -
It's all those legs, and they run so fast, *and* fly. So
flat, they can fit through most any crack or crevice. :(
Who knows where they've been before, as they walk over
your lunch supplies. What sewer might they have climbed
out of?

I lived in Charleston, SC.  One got caught in my hair when
I was a kid, freaked me out. I've watched them walking up
the window screens.

Snap Crackle Pop on the sidewalks.

At university it was "fun" to put them *in* unsuspecting
people's beds. Better than short-sheeting.

And where there's one there's a million.

Those little German Roaches are no better, but they are
not so big.
