For those of you who HAD cockroches how did you get rid of them?

Please help! I'm OCD clean, you can literally eat off the floor so I know I'm not dirty. We live in an apt.

  • If you live in an apartment, it could be close to impossible to get rid of them! If your neighbors have them, they'll just go back and forth! I had a problem with the f*ckers before, and they came with us when we moved. Not nearly as many, of course, and since there weren't any others around we could finally get rid of them, but it still took about 3 months because they're so freaking sneaky. We wouldn't see any for a while, and then one day, there's one, the next day there's two...But we did finally get rid of them all! Try using that glue stuff that looks like it's in a caulk gun. Put it around all the places they sneak in.

  • Are they little bitty ones about an inch long, or are they the giant freakish kind?

    It makes a HUGE difference.

  • Its kinda pricey, but I had terminex come out. We have the freakishly huge kind, and I have not seen one in the house since they sprayed.
    Also, make sure you close up any cracks (like under the sink, the doorways, etc) with expanding foam.
    The terminex guy also put out loads of glue traps. That might help. Have you tried any store products?
