Just so, how are water bugs getting in my house?
Waterbugs are attracted to garbage because of all the leftover food and the moist environments in the bags and such. Make sure you get a good garbage can with a lid that closes tightly and snugly. Take the garbage out regularly, once it's full - or even if it's not full, don't let it sit for days on end.
Also, are water bugs and roaches the same? Cockroach and water bug differences Size - generally a water bug is bigger than a cockroach. Most cockroaches are between 1 - 1 1/2 inches long. Water bugs are usually about two inches long. Although the term water bug is applied to a wide variety of insects, the Giant Water Bug is often most confused with cockroaches.

Do water bugs come up drains?
Water bugs often live in drains, as they are great sources of water and protected areas. If you have the bugs in your drains, you can kill them, or at least make the drains uninhabitable, by pouring vinegar right down every drain. Repeat this daily until the waterbugs are gone.
