Ok, last July 30th we had a real bad pasture fire, my BIL used to live next door to us and their house was DISGUSTING. At the time of the fire they had extremely bad roaches, the fire got within a few feet of their house, but the fire fighters were able to contain it before it got real close to us. Well, due to the fire all the roaches they had ran from the heat and have found their way into my house. I have used raid, those trap things, this "peanut butter" stuff that is supposed to kill them and pest control has been out here 4 times already and everytime they just get worst. I'm a SAHM and I'm very very particular about how clean my house is, especially since I have a 3 yr old and a 15 month old. But despite all this I canNOT get rid of the roaches... anyone know what else I can try. I will try anything that isn't going to harm kids!Answer Question

FYI roaches live in warm areas i.e frigs, stoves anything that stays warm ... if you have them and seem to not be able to get rid of them, they maybe in these appliances and you may have to get rid of them... also inside walls... you can have the cleanest house in the world, but once they get in certain areas they tend to become harder to get rid of...
Also set outdoor traps around the house to prevent more from coming in... have the co. spray the outside also... get a lawn co. out to do the grass they tend to have a bug killer in their chemicals when fertilizing the lawns..
Good luck, but check those appliances.. including hot water tanks, furnaces and any fireplaces that you may have...
