How do I get rid of roaches???

I have had stupid roaches ever since I have moved in and I HATE THEM! I know I need to call someone to get rid of them but it cost so much money and bombs are so messy... Any other ideas?

  • Boric Acid. Put a path around counters etc.

  • If you can afford them, Raid brand roach traps. In your cabinets and under sinks and under appliances, etc. Don't go generic on these 'cause they don't work. I live in FL and we've had issues with them too. They'll outlive us all.

  • I bought "Roach Motels" at the hardware store when we lived in Florida and never saw another roach. I put them under the kitchen sink. Works wonderfully and then you don't have toxic fumes in your home as you would with bombs or sprays.
