  • I agree with rkoloms- you can get a big box of Borax at walmart for 3$. Bay leaves do also help. Borax is pretty non-toxic to children and pets, just make sure they don't eat it. (It'll give them digestion issues) Put it in corners, around food serving/preparing areas, etc.

  • Put down boric acid and bay leaves. Keep your sinks and counters dry.

  • I have heard that roaches like warm places like, behind the fridge and the stove, and even electrical outlets, you may want to check those places too.
