Fear of home insects

I remember last time when I was visiting my aunt who staying in a 9th floor flat, I seldom find mosquitoes, lizards, cockroach, ants, flies or any other crawling insects. Today, I'm living in a 10th floor height of apartment are getting all those mentions. I hate all of them.

I'm used to afraid of cockroach and kind of phobia too. Last time in parents home, manage to ask them to kill it whenever I saw them. Now, most of the time at home by own, I've overcome the fear to kill cockroaches (no one to depends on). But, I still feel very very geli. I will go chase and open up all area that saw them hiding then use spray and pat till it died flat, pick up it and flush away. Normally those cockroach able to reach my place are those flying cockroach and normally is bigger one.

Next the most is ants. It comes seasonal and everytime they appear different kind. Sometimes those ants are red one and sometimes those very tiny and run very fast. I have no problem killing them, just let them eat those ant killer powder (from China) and they will disappear in 3 days.

Lizard, I'm ok with them as they can help me to eat up those flying insects around at night. This round I found a hungry lizards appear at my kitchen top and shit everywhere. It is so disgusting and dirty. Just afraid if they did crawl up to my cutlery, cups or baby bottles. Without this I don't think I can easily catch and kill it.
This is a non-poison piece. When it open up, it has a very sticky surface. A hygenic way to use and very effective in catching flies, bugs, bees, house lizards or other insects. I got it from my mum, which told can get it from ironware tools shop. So, I placed it on the area where I saw the lizard wondering then place a piece of biscuit there. Stick flat on the kitchen top and few days later, caught this hungry lizard.
It couldn't run anymore. I think this is good to catch mouse too. Once my mum told me, a greedy cat wants to eat the food placed on top, end up the cat being stick on the paper and couldn't even struggle cause all four are on the paper.

So, what home insects you fear of and how you get rid of them?

I hate all creepy creatures. One night I saw one lizard happily crawling on my wall, I woke my sotong up asked her to kill it (sorry la.. very cruel but if I know it's not dead I think I cannot sleep). Btw.. that was 1am. :P

There are so many lizards in my house especially the kitchen, I'd have to plaster the whole kitchen to get rid of all of them. Ewe.. Thanks for sharing.
