When should the adder be released, and what path should it take?

I know what I have to do

I just can't get the adder to cooperate.

Time it so the adder's head is next to the corridor on turn 6. Then just be north of it and it will reach the upper half of the area.

Turn 6?? Is that possible? I can get the head next to the arrow on turn 5, which means that it has the wrong parity for turn 6.

In any case, getting it to the upper half of the circuit wasn't a problem, getting it to not eat the second four roaches was.

So apparently I need more detailed hints. When, and how, and in what order do I have to release the second set of roaches and the adder?

Sorry, I meant next to the door into the corridor.

My demos involve getting all the roaches into a column, with the lowest roach being aligned with the top tunnel. Then I let the adder eat one on the same turn I go through the tunnel, and then lead three roaches into the arrow passage. The move order works out so that the other four roaches all pass the arrow. It's hard to tell from the demos alone if there's any particular tricks in making the move order work out, though.

That worked out. Thanks!

As for the move order,
