I know, I know! Yesterday I blogged about my phone problem. But today I have an even bigger and more annoying problem: I have cock roaches in my house. (Don’t judge until you have walked a mile … in my house … with the cock roaches.)
So I bought some roach bait at my favorite store, aka Costco. And, like the phone instructions in the previous post, the roach bait instructions were entirely in Chinese, except for these four delightful sentences:
“Hydramethylnon’s powerful delayed-action with excellent secondary transmission effect.* It is effective in control of roach with single feeding. Allow infected roach return to harborage and die. The lethal dose would be transmitted to all roaches in harborage by roach coprophagous and cannibalistic behavior.”
*(Yes, this sentence is completely devoid of a verb, or a predicate for that matter.)
Now I can only speak for myself here, but I’m always very careful to ensure that my roaches have both caprophagous and cannibalistic behavior in any harborage that I provide. Any other roach expectation would be just wrong. Furthermore, I prefer the thoughtful hydramethylnon’s delayed-action with secondary transmission effect way of doing business with any sort of larvae; because, let’s face it, that’s just the kind of person I am!
But regardless, I really hope those filthy little suckers are dead by morning!
