  •  Talk to your landlord..maybe if he wont pay for it all he'll pay 50/50. In the meantime..Borax powder. all around the outside. On counter tops by seams. There is a great product called Roach Prufe. It's main ingredient is Borax. It works great but it is like almost $10 a can. It is FDA approved and SAFE. Here is the website

  • Where I live, the landlord is responsible for that, especially if its roaches. But it may vary by state. You can call your local heath dept. or housing authority to be certain. Though I know like someplaces they seem unavoidable, they really are a health hazard. Some companies will refuse to even do the work if the landlord doesn't sign off on it, because you are not the property owner.
