how do i get rid of roaches/beetles?

All of a sudden it feels like my house is being taken over. I just killed 3 or these bugs in the last 5 minutes. My husband says they are beetles, but they could be roaches. They are little black things that crunch bad when you squish them, and they run like crazy from you. I have no clue where they are coming from. They like to come out at night mainly, but I also see them in the early morning. They are grossing me out. My 10 month old tried to eat one yesterday before I even saw it. I swept the floor, dumped it, and looked back and they are there. UGH! what do i do? and how do i know what they are?

  • Bug Bomb!!! Or you could try skin so soft from Avon. That works awesome and it would take a lot of it to be harmful to your baby.
