Do any of you know any natural ways to kill roaches, that actually works? I have pets and small children, so I'm leery of anything toxic.

Thanks in advance!

I've tried Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap.

I'm petrified of the chemicals they use around my kids and pets. That stuff is nasty.

Uhhhh I have a four year old, am pregnant, and three dogs and two cats. It's not like they spray chemicals on your spoons.

I am just going to say that I have had an AWESOME experience with Orkin. I had a HORRIBLE ant problem in my home for years, and after having a baby I could not deal with it anymore. They only sprayed in my home once, and they sprinkled in the cracks inside one other time, and now they ONLY spray outside and I have been ant free for 2 years. I used a dealer and got a great deal where they only come out 4 times a year. SO worth the money. I honestly do not think natural remedies are going to get rid of your roaches. I tried everything on my ants before turning to Orkin. And no we don't work for them. LOL
