What is the best way to get rid of roaches?

The exterminator hasn't done it and it's been a couple of years. I have two small children running around so I want something safe for them.

  • Every summer We get those nasty water bugs. eew! Nothing kills those gross little boogers. The only thing that seemed to work were those bug bombs that you set off in every room then leave the house for a few hours. that has worked well so far

  • Best way to get rid of roaches is go to Walmart and buy that borax powder stuff. Sprinkle some behind your stove, refrigerator and anywhere where it's not easy for the kids to get. Also, buy that gun thing that has a paste in it. It's for roaches too. Put that paste over the top of every door frame and window in your house and anywhere else that the kids can't reach.
    That will rid you of your problem for at least a year.

  • Borax and bay leaves

  • Terminix. Little bugs are one thing, the occasional spider is tolerable, but roaches are roaches. Not the time to screw around. I'd call in the big guns.
