Yep these are pesky little things when they escape. Follow the noise and bash them with a slipper. LOL But can be hard to find. The beardie might do a better job but don't loose him as well.

Hmmmmm...can JUST imagine noisy insects in a confined space. Over here (Thailand) we have these bugs that "sing" whenever it's gonna rain - like some "Male Voice Choir" at 3am!!!...Can't stand them!
Feel for you on that score!

We trained the dogs to find them, great when you have around 5 or so loose.

They also like chasing daddy long legs in the summer!
