In an attempt to study how long this phenomena would last, I caught 2 live nymphs of different sizes, 1cm and 2cm respectively, to experiment on how long they can live without food and water. While sharing my experience with another friend, who had lived in Aussie many years ago, she reported that her Australian born adult cockroaches could survive up to 2 weeks in a jar without food and water. Hence, I wonder how long it will take for 2 Japanese-born nymphs to expire. Currently I have one kept for a week and another freshly caught yesterday. Both are still doing well.
Meanwhile, due to the triple Japan disaster, the occupancy rate of our dorm had fallen to new lows, so the office is offering us to extend our stay till March 2012!!! If you'd read about my previous posts, you would know that I had yearned to move out ever since the first day I moved in. However if I compare the rent of 29,000yen of the dorm VS 80,000yen of a mansion apartment, it's a no-brainer to sign up and bear with everything. Imagine what I can do with all those money saved!!!???
