The goal is to get beethro to trigger the middle pp on the same turn that roaches trigger the remaining pps.

I'm not sure if I'm on the right track. I can get all but one of the pressure plates at once.

No... Only four in a row... Left stand perfectly.

Edit: Well, five in a row.

Edit: Wow, but six in a row. And death...

Edit: seven in a row. And no death!

Your main goal is to get the roach queens to spawn at

To get them to spawn there is mostly a matter of counting. Since the roaches are directly in a column below you just time moving a queen to the east and to the west so that they hit the right spots on turn 30. Follow the queens down then do the following.
