Horrifying images of colonies of intruders taking over your kitchen—and your life—seep into your thoughts as you disdainfully eye a large one taking a dip in your commode. Goosebumps climb up your neck as your stomach churns and an earsplitting shriek works its way out of your throat to the alarm of anyone within a mile’s earshot.
