Cucarachas

In Panama and the old Canal Zone there were more than 5,000 species of Cucarachas. Fortunately for all of us who lived there only 5 different types like to live indoors in our Tropical Quarters. The worst critters were the giant flying cucarachas. It was an ongoing war with the cucarachas. Flit Cans were always at the ready loaded with Black Flag or DDT.

 

Sometimes I wonder if we are winning the war because we seem to have as many cucarachas as ever. Since we are in for the long haul we must remain ever vigilant to this pesky critter.  The war must continue and sometimes "Mano a Mano." Rule Numero Uno (Rule #1) Cucarachas are everywhere---
