Or Scutigera coleoptrata.

If a house does not have spiders and Scutigera coleoptrata in it, it surely is sterile or infested.

Nothing is more comforting to know of the active army of tiny (ish) Terminators purposefully avoiding human interaction of all sorts (not interested in human food or waste at all, will hide at the slightest hint of human presence, and are nocturnal) while seeking out and destroying every pest (including spiders, but that is their own battle) they can find.

For the roaches, I would recommend finding food sources, points of entry, and possible areas of concentration.

Wow, am I ever glad I googled this!

You're right for the most part, Rosarium, but for one detail, according to Wiki:
Quote:In 1902, C.L. Marlatt, an entomologist with the United States Department of Agriculture wrote a brief description of the house centipede:

It may often be seen darting across floors with very great speed, occasionally stopping suddenly and remaining absolutely motionless, presently to resume its rapid movements, often darting directly at inmates of the house, particularly women, evidently with a desire to conceal itself beneath their dresses, and thus creating much consternation.

So, trad ladies, priests and religious, beware!
