  • We have constant treatment...about every 3 months. I rent also and it is our responsibility. I don't know where they are coming from but we've been battling them for over a year. I'm 35 yrs old and though my housekeeping is not immaculate by any means, I've never had a problem with them before. (I blame the neighbors LOL).

  • MamaJen if you live in an apatment or condo count on it being the neighbors and just flat out in the walls of the place. It is a common place occurance.

  • I rent as well, but our landlords pays have to have the bldgs sprayed for roaches and termites every 3 months. I would talk to the landlord and see what they say.

  • Oh, also never step on one and kill it. You may kill the roach, but not the hundreds of eggs they carry.
