  • Oh honey. Once they get in your things they are so hard to get rid of. Boric Acid in small amounts under the in corners of the house behind things the kids cant touch. couches and fridge will help.

  • If you are renting then you need to let the landlord know of the problem...if he/she doesnt take care of the problem and have an expert exterminator come out and take care of it and get rid of them, then you need to call the health dept in your area. Cockroaches carry so many diseases including Hepatitis(sp)ecoli etc...they are really hard to kill also and they mate and have thousands of babys at once. Sorry your going through this

  • If you are renting the landlord needs to take care of this.

  • This stuff  will kill anything. We use it around our property to make sure there are no scorpions, and those damn things are nearly impossible to kill. It's also safe to use inside the house and will not harm pets or children once it's dry. It is by far the best thing we have ever used. My husband also maintains foreclosed properties and has to do spraying and bombing. This always kills EVERYTHING in the first treatment.
