THEY NEST

SCENE ZONE

In the movie: A Maine island becomes infested with lethal insects that root inside their victims, while a local doctor battles the bugs and incorrigible locals who don’t believe him. In real life: One, they’re fast; two, they creep up on you; and three, they fly. Our brains are programmed to fear Cockroaches that the mere sight of a Cockroach chilling on a wall can give us chills down our spine. But Cockroaches are not all that bad. They are decomposers who contribute to the nitrogen cycle and the ecosystem. However, if Cockroaches have overstayed their welcome at your home and you want to take a break from them, make sure to clean, clean, and clean some more. And if you want to get rid of your fear, gradually desensitizing yourself to them (as in exposure therapy) would be best, as Cockroaches are here to stay.
