I think I'll still use Black Flag (or something like it) to control cockroaches, not tiny backpacks.

EDIT: I'm not at all sure that will allow me to be considered less cruel. I really have nothing against cockroaches -- I've probably voted for a few in my life -- just not in the house, or anywhere I can see them.
