A few weeks ago we discovered we had unexpected…ugh…visitors. We’ve NEVER had roaches but our 21yo ds cleaned out a rental house for us, and for some reason I cannot fathom, brought a few things back that the woman had left…a stack of dishes, a few unopened cans. The house was trashed and badly infested with roaches.
I did some research and read that boric acid will kill them, although it is not highly toxic to humans. I don’t have inside pets or crawling babies/toddlers who will get into it, so I sprinkled it around the edges of the walls, under the sink, etc. I also put sticky boards around. Most web sites said you have to be patient and persistent. You won’t get rid of them all immediately.
I thought we’d got rid of them all, but then we began noticing tiny baby ones. YUCK!!! These things make me shudder. I put out more boric acid and thorougly cleaned out all kitchen cupboards, including under the sink. I don’t notice too many bugs, so I think we must’ve killed a lot of them…only see one once in a while.
IS THERE ANY WAY TO GET RID OF THESE HORRID THINGS FOR GOOD??? Please tell me yes!
