  • We used Raid Roach Killer in our old apartment, we put it everywhere and anywhere we saw roaches. We have never had a huge problem with them, but the Raid helped so much!! GL I know how gross they are and very hard to get rid of. Hope you can get rid of them :)

  • We used the hot shot fogger, it worked for the flies and ants but nothing else...I will look into it and thank you. I can live with spiders but not roaches

  • Boric acid and bay leaves. Keep your kitchen very dry
