Hi, OP here, to answer your question, the slow cooker was sitting on the bench, underneath a shelf in our kitchen. As I took the lid off, the roach came from above, literally jumping into the pot! So I definitely did not see it before I took the lid off!

Here's a cockroach trivia for you, OP. When you see a cockroach, it is most certainly not alone. Who you gonna call?! The exterminators. You should call the exterminators.

Yeah if they're the big huge ones, then they most likely come from the trees outside. They'll find their way in one way or another. At least that's how it is down south where I live.

To clarify, we have very unfortunate neighbours who are hoarders! Basically, no matter what we do, there is always the odd roach lurking about. We spray, use baits and keep our place tidy and free from food scraps, but they seem to migrate from the squalor next door. As I said in response to #1, this one was hiding on a shelf above the bench top and jumped in when I took the lid off. It was just one of those days!

Have you gone over to talk to them or even filed a complaint against them since they are not only endangering themselves but making a problem for those around them?I'm not sure about the laws in Australia about a subject like this and I'm just curious. It is fucking gross and I feel your pain. My in-laws are kinda the same way and I've wanted to beat them over their heads with their junk at times.

Guys talking about suing and making complaints or getting exterminators. I don't know about op but that stuff just doesn't fly in Australia, everyone "has cockroaches" they're very common here especially if you live near bushland, or like op said, near hoarders. Your place can be a tidy and clean as ever but you can still get cockroaches. As for suing, that just doesn't happen here. You don't sue someone here for anything really as we have a different legal system that is for crimes against a state instead of crimes against a person- you'll literally be laughed out of court if you even make it that far. The Most you can do is file a report to the council who will send over a ranger but nothing further really would happen.

Guess you could say that cockroach was on a casse-roll. No? Ok ._.

In some places, cockroaches are normal to see
