When I lived in Brooklyn, NY, I saw German cockroaches and what we
called water bugs, wider and fatter than cockroaches.
But in the last month I've found bugs even bigger in my bathroom. I
don't know what they are.
They are longer, wider, black, shiny all over, have no waist, and I
can almost always step on one and kill it. Even though they run, they
don't run directly to a hiding place. They seem thicker than the
other two bugs above, but yet they run under the sink cabinet, which
looks like it's less than a millmeter off the floor!!
Yesterday, it reached a new level. As I came up the steps, there were
two of them in the hall, walking down the carpet, one six inches
behind the other and walking at the same pace. Like they were in the
. As I lifted my foot, they ran quickly, and I got one of
them, because as always, he didn't run straight to hiding.
I figure this is a big clue. Does anyone know what this bug is. It
might help me get rid of them.
