EEEEEKKk!!! hate those roaches... no matter how small!!! Apparently even a nuclear blast wont kill the bastards!!! Try borax... hard to get here but u can get it USA, if u have any friends coming from there... apparently that works.... keep spraying the bagyon cos it sounds like they are all emerging from a nest!!!! ugh!!!

look for some sites on the net,, some time ago i had a similar problem.. mine was worst they were frigging flying ones and they came from outside cos people were not bagging their rubbish... what a nightmare!

keep a tin of baygon everywhere... also put cloves in the cupboards..apparently keeps them away.. some say pandan leaves too...

You could go the market to buy lots of pandan leaves and place a couple of bundles in the drawers, cabinets, etc., where you think the croaks are.

It will keep the croaks away and also you will have nice fragrant smell from the leaves as well.

Yuck, I hate cockroaches!
If they don't go away and there are many of them I would call a company who handles the little animals professionally!

Errr... SMS, they sure as hell aint plants. Insects are indeed animals... admittedly a different phyla from us great apes... but animals nonetheless.

that must be the food attract them and believe it that they hide inside the cracks and crevices. I believe the smaller cockroaches you saw were German cockroaches. That's the most horrible creature in kitchen of most restaurants.

i suggest you to remove food waste and clear the rubbish every now and then and use chemical to eliminate the colony.

it is best to call for pest controller for this case! They have chemical and gel to be applied for this specific insects.
