  • You can try to get some of those little roach houses w/ the bait inside. If that doesnt help & they wont do more for you, then you could always turn them in to the city for a codes violation.

  • Try Borax. Sprinkle it along doorways, windowsills, under cabinets, inside cabinets. Also dissolve 1/4 cup in 1 cup of water and use it to spray directly on live bugs.

  • No. we have lived in this particular apartment for several years and I've never seen a roach. Not one. Which is impressive living in the middle of the city.

    Watch me get roaches now that I've said that.. LOL

  • Gross. Call an exterminator. If that doesn't fix the problem, break your lease and find a new place to live. That is NASTY!
