We live in a the middle. Landlord bombed the right side apartment, the leftside apartment has no issues, but we are INFESTED. He has sprayed (professional strength)(well, now I don't believe so), we have sprayed, we have dusted under sinks and in every wall socket in the place. These are those little german nasties.....any suggests??

  • We had them in our townhome..a couple of trash bags had been set in the garage and later got covered up by something,..we bombed the entire house and garage. We just did the raid bombs from walmart,..I put 3 throughout the house (kitchen living room and hallway upstairs) and put 3 in the garage (the garage was where they were but I wasn't going to rake the chance of them finding a way inside) got rid of them and we never had n issue again. Definitely learned from that one. Lol

  • Unless all 3 of you plan an attack for the same time, they'll just go back and forth. Without fumigating, there isn't a good way to completely be rid of them.

  • the ENTIRE building needs to be professionally done at the same time, not
    one apt at a time... and needs to be kept up on bc they WILL come back...
    they are very hard to get rid of ...

  • I agree that the whole building needs to be done. They can lay a protective barrier, though, that will keep the bugs from going anywhere else if you get a professional.
