'Take out cockroach wrap up'. If I had a dime for every time I've said that, I'd be living in Kailua.

"Mostly what we do in Hawaii is just live with the knowledge that something other than humans live there too"

Hi, I'm not sure I agree. You need to keep cockroaches to an absolute minimum; they reproduce in days and you will be overwhelmed if you don't get rid of them. I see the little nymphs in the kitchen, frequently around the sink and stove. They come back every six months or so into our Honolulu condominium. We have the place re-treated, sweep them for several days, and do the best we can.

One thing I've discovered: Keep your toaster and other kitchen appliances covered; otherwise the cockroaches will take up residence in them! Kid you not.

We have (recently) had some success with the chalk that you use to draw around edges, etc. I still on a daily basis wear slippahs in the house (1) so my feet don't turn black (no matter how much I Swiffer the black dust returns quickly since our windows are always open); and (2) to have a ready weapon to smash if they don't quickly flee the scene.

This thread has singlehandedly halted my plans of moving to Oahu. Well, this thread, and subsequent internet searches on cane spiders.

I'm not even kidding. I was 80% sure I was moving there later this year. I was there last year on business. Had another trip planned in April to scope out living arrangements, and the plan was to make the move a month or two later.

Not anymore. I'm from SoCal, and we have quarter-sized spiders, crickets, praying mantises and such, but rarely roaches, and sure as hell no spiders bigger than my last full meal. I simply cannot abide that. I understand they're not dangerous, but the irrational fear that takes hold and evidently causes massive shifts in fairly solid moving plans is of accidentally pressing against or, god forbid, crunching one.

Sweet lord. Close call.

wow you must live in more upgraded areas of SoCal. The areas I used to live around SoCal had roaches sometimes the size of my big toe or at least thumb and they got into everything (Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Balboa)

Yeah, I'm in the 'burbs. I have seen big roaches once in the seedier areas of town a half-hour away. I don't understand how anyone gets used to that.
