    Chapter One. As Kockroach, an arthropod of the genus Blatella and of the species germanica, awakens one morning from a typically dreamless sleep, he finds himself transformed into some large, vile creature. He is lying flip side up atop a sagging pad. Four awkwardly articulated legs sprawl on either side of his extended thorax. Cockroach droppings permanently stain books and papers. While the stains may not be removable, you can ensure that the roaches do not continue to grow in your books and papers. If you are unsure if you have a roach problem, set a sticky trap out near the suspected area. Check it every few days to see if any visitors have been caught.
