The same, everywhere.

Use the Hippy Dippy Pest Control Company. :cool: Their motto is "We'll kill your bugs and Smoke your Roaches!" :mrgreen:

I've been here a couple of months now and saw a cockroach (maybe 6 cm long) in the kitchen the first night I moved into may apartment. I thought this was going to be a big problem, but have not seen any more indoors since, just a few outside.

So yes they are here but should not be a big problem if where you are staying has good pest control management, regularly fogs waste chutes etc.

Good luck!
What's worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care

Haha .. yes they can be found everywhere.. :???:
esp below HDB Flats .. or near rubbish chutes.. or worse those near coffee shops.. But i will like to think that they are still under control.. :-| They can travel anywhere .. except in my home! :roll:

I kept them away by using aromatheraphy or insect repellent.. So far, quite effective coz i no longer see them around. Thanx God, i dun see them in my house .. or i will SCREAAMMM.. :???: They are disgusting.. :evil:

Cheers,
take care :wink:

Haha .. i dun think so..
It will be harmless if they are not within my sight and in home..
Otherwise u dunno what diseases they carry along with them.. i rather be safe than sorry. esp now with lots of air-borne diseases ..

Beside I choose who my friends are. And i do not want to make friends with them.. That is for sure! :???:
