Do you know, there are not that many things that I can honestly say that I hate, but Cockroaches are close to the top of the list.
I was brought up in Sydney, and they were everywhere! Not that Sydney is unclean place, I love Sydney, what a wonderful city of the world... But Cockies, I was never a big fan.
I lived in a unit in Blues Point Towers at McMahons Point, and you would turn on your tap to have a cuppa, and these German ones would fall out into your cup, or kettle, then just dissapear into nowhere!
Then I moved to Brisbane about 12 years ago.
Would you believe I have probably seen about 6 Cockies in that time, and most flew in the back door or window. It is incredible the difference!
In Brisbane, we have alot of Asian Geckos.
These Geckos we have up here are everywhere, like Cockies, but they are kinder nice to look at, and have around, and they don't try to run all over your food! The really young ones are very cute! Also, they tend to live high up, like roofs or awnings and keep to themselves. Sometimes they come out and fight for their territory, quite viciously on occasion.
So I am thinking the Asian Geckos eat the Cockie eggs!
I know you may think I need to get out more, but has anybody else noticed the lack of Cockies up here, or is it that I just have a Gecko fetish?
