    Thank you for your response.
    I guess that "squash" is often used.

    Hi;
    By “cockroach” I think he means <brown insects that are said to be found especially in dirty rooms> . Why you separate this word into two parts “cock” & “roach”!!! Cockroach is the same as “beetle”
    Which is the most horrible insect (of course for me???)
    Hope that helps
    Best wishes
