ZQ is in a tropical zone and we do get creepy crawlies. The best and most non-toxic way to deal with cockroaches is to pour boiling water over them. Then there are the tennis rackets like device for frying mosquitoes. Delightful smell. For ants use dishwashing soap bubbles. If all else fails, use your big can of Raid.

The wall lizards I usually tolerate as they do eat mosquitoes but my cat doesn’t agree with me on this. They are her favourite prey.

I live and let live for spiders. We have had a few cockroaches in the hot weather but not much else. The mosquitoes are the worst problem (they tend to bite my wife rather than me) but we don’t get too many in the flat. All the beds have mosquito nets and air-conditioning both of which keep them away.
