Two Cockroaches on an Ace of Hearts.  BIG Bugs!

Two Cockroaches on an Ace of Hearts. BIG Bugs!

I laid these two cockroaches on an Ace of Heart to show the size of those rascals.

We had plenty of them where I was at. At night it was either them, the rats, or me when it came to who was going to sleep in the sleeping bag at night. I used my lighter and some kind of spray in a can to make a flamethrower and cook them as they tried to escape.
