Sat Siri Akaal. During gurdwara service, try not to kill bugs, it is inappropriate. When Guru is in sukhasan, cleaning and removal of bugs is appropriate, and infestations need stronger action.

Cockroach infestation indicates that Guru's home is not being properly cared for, I don't care what the causes of the infestation are. The first cause is a lack of care and consciousness for Guru's home. Guru's home should be pristine as the Harimandir Sahib.
