We have a lot of them in Texas too, they are just attracted to humid and damp environments.

TELL ME WHAT TO DO, BECAUSE THIS IS OFFICIALLY WAR ON THESE ROACHES.
Contact the Landlord for your building/house. Let them know you saw a roach. Depending on what floor you are on or if there are people beside you in other apartments, you can be as clean as you want but if they are not then the little "buggers" are going to continue to come into your apartment. Your best bet...have it fumigated! YUCK is right, roaches are horrible.

Rent the movie "BUG". Flying giant roaches that start fires and are voracious carnivores that attack people like piranha's.

Most people would drop the box and scream like a 6 year old girl.

The bath salts make the roaches eat each other - cannibal-like?

OMG - It is 1am on Maui and I just awoke to a freaky sensation across the center of my ear, jumped up and from the dim light in the room saw a dark spot on my bed. I turned on the light in the hall and came back and there it was OMG a 2 inch long COCKROACH with big legs right on my sheets where I was sleeping and less than a foot away from my husbands face!!!!!!!
I ran upstairs like lightening and grabbed a clear drinking cup and it was still there when I got back. I slowly came from above and trapped it under the cup, hyperventalating. Meanwhile when I looked over my husband was no longer in the bed, he was on the floor as if passed out. "Wake up!" I said "There's a fricking huge cockroach in our bed!!". He was really groggy as the past few nights he's been taking Nyquil to help get him over a cold and a good night's rest so he was useless! I went into our nearby den and grabbed a collapsed flat rate postal box and came back and slowly wedged it under the cup. GOTCHA SUCKAH!!! Then I transported it outta my room, back through the den, out the sliding glass doors to my back yard, walked ten feet to the fence and with a big force slid the upsidedown cup off the cardboard! I am so freaked out right now! It is 1:30am and there is no way I am going to be able to go back to sleep!!! Ahhhhhhh!
