Thenk you for that Lesley= I too suffer from phobias hence my query about cockroaches, but no one has answered whether they are a problem on Langkawi of not. It doesnt stop me travelling to wonderful new destinations either but I do find it helps if I know what to expect from the local insect world.

Gosh yes, cockroaches are auful - think you will see some but they are not a problem like as in an infestation or anything!!

At the Berjaya (where I stay) the accommodation is chalets made of wood dotted about in the rain forest so its more likely that creepies can get in - don't know where you are staying so best not comment.

Take some spray and spray round the doors and windows and that might deter them.

As you love Goa, I am sure you will love Langkawi, although it is much quieter.

thanks Lesley any recommendations of what spray to use, buy in UK or Langkawi. The very thing that you say Langkawi is - quieter (than Goa) is just what I want believe me and the creepy crawlies cant be much worse than the Indian ones! thanks again

Whilst browsing the gardening section in a local supermarket this lunchtime I saw the following which may be of interest to you.

A spray called "Dethlac" (of all things), which is reputed to kill ants, cockroaches, woodlice and all manner of creepy crawlies.

I will take some with me when I return in October and let you know whether it works or not.
