Kills on Contact

Goldrick: Wait will you look at this with me? Is that a roach?
Me (looking at her ceiling): No, I think that's a spider. I mean, have you ever seen a roach in our apartment?
G: Well, not since the fall.
Me: WHAT.
G: Well I've only ever seen like three in here. And it's not during the winter, it was when the weather got warmer.
Me: WHAT. WE NEED TO GET MORE ROACH TRAPS.

After replacing the current roach traps with the four unused ones we had in our apartment, it was decided that I would look into more traps today at CVS. Unfortunately, CVS is well stocked for every other insect in the world- ants, fleas, yellow jackets - and were sold out of roach traps. Not a good sign for the neighborhood, if you know what I mean. So I perused the spray cans to see what they might have in stock and found one for roaches, which was clearly labeled "KILLS ON CONTACT."

I immediately got up and left without buying anything because, contact? If there is contact with a roach, you can pretty much guarantee that I'll be passed out next to it instead of calmly spritzing it to death.
