roaches.....german roaches...... :(

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

my house and car has become infested with german roaches. Those are the small brown and beige ones that scatter when the lights are turned on and leave dander behind...they are so freakin gross. I hate them. And they have infested my house and car. I have yet to see like 30 of them; I see no more than 4 at a time. But still! My house and car are relatively clean. I clean everyday. I have poured a sugar/borax mix in the cracks of the kitchen. DH found a small hole at the bottom of my car and this summer ants got in it. He sprayed my car good with some chemicals which rid the ants. I guess it didnt affect the roaches. Yesterday at work, I opened my wallet and 2 freakin roaches jumped out. I am so grossed out. Makes me feel like we are filthy! How do I get RID OF THEEEEEEEEEEM

Good luck! I have the little fuckers and no matter how much I clean they are still here! We caolled the exterminator out 3 times and have done it ourself 2 times, and they are still around! 

If I bleach the counters and stuff before I go to sleep, I notice they come out even more! Ironic, they like clean! :)

All I can say is we are never without Raid! I wake up in the middle of the night after bleaching my counters, and spray the little bastards! I walk into the bathroom armed and ready, because that is my trouble spot!

Don't bomb or use spray.
Use boric acid. And go get some roach bait.
It can take up to 35 days to get rid of them.

My so says says wash all your laundry. Go and buy (from the dollar store in the hood) TAT and put that around door jams and window openings. Then set off fumigators. Not foggers! And then leave until that is done. Good luck momma!

Make sure ur yard is treated too and keep the garbage cans around the outside in check. If ur neighbors yards are trashed up, that may help too

I have started seeing them in the bathroom since a few days ago. AAAAAAAAAH! we've been here a little over a year and I havent had my car long. They came out of nowhere! We just got over a mouse problem too!

I would move.  I seriously have a phobia and it's not even a joke.  I would stay in a hotel and have the house tented and the care treated....my skin is crawling just thinking about it.

Idk sorry haven't had that problem and hopefully I never do

I would suggest finding the queen and killing her and her whole entire family then moving for a lil bit

I feel your pain, OP. When we first moved into this house we didn't have roaches, but now we do. We've cleaned, bombed, used borax.  Nothing's really working. The neighbors have them as well. When we mow the lawn they scurry away from the lawnmower :\  It's bad.
Hopefully when we move we won't bring any along.
