or more to the point, can roach eggs survive a freeze? OMG...it was gross! i visited someone who just had surgery and their home is infested. they are trying traps and sprays when they can afford it, but for now there are mashed roaches in the carpet...etc. i had one pregnant female on my leg. i am sure i stepped in roach mash. i saw them drop from picture frames to the floor. i got the willies as i hate those dang things. i tossed my clothes in the wash and my shoes and coveralls are outside. i was wondering if a freeze will kill any eggs on my shoes? BLAHHHHHHH!!!!
