I have nightmares about these things. We have killed at least 20 of them so far in the apartment, and they are fast. We have a designated shoe to kill them and we keep it out just in case. Every night we see a new one (or two or three). Along with a spider and mosquitoes. Will it ever end? Until you have actually seen one in person I don't think you have an idea of the fear they induce. We can't walk anywhere with out the thought (and fear) of seeing one of them. They blend in with the carpets which makes it even worse. At least they aren't upstairs in the bedrooms. I have shivers just thinking about them. Gross!
