My DD had a bonding sleep over for her cheer team last weekend...& one of the girls had a roach in her bag...we didn't know which one it was we just know it came from one of them, I've seen 3 roaches in my home since! & my home has NEVER had roaches! Everything is clean! Soo clean you could eat off my kitchen floor...Since then I've scrubbed & washed EVERYTHING in my house, & I bought these bomb foggers,that's supposed to kill all bugs,then today her mom hosted the parents meeting at her house & guess what? ROACHES! I saw at least like 50 of em! They were all over the walls & kitchen floors! Idk what to do, I'm the coaches Assistant and most of the sleepovers & gatherings are hosted at my house(the coach lives in an apartment & she can't have gatherings like that because the noise will disturb the neighbors).... I don't want to be rude but I don't want her brining any bags into my house... What should I do

I would stop hosting sleep overs. Also diggers won't work the bait you get from an exterminator is the best.

Offer to help her debug. She might be overwhelmed.

It would be embarrasing to single the girl out, so I would stop having sleep overs....that's pretty gross and if I had roaches I would be too embarrased to have anything at my house. People just dont care anymore.....

It's ok I got them from a nasty apt neighbor. We shared a kitchen wall and all they did was spray for a year and no diff. But I moved and had the new place treated he baited and within days they were gone. And never saw another.

Roaches are crazy hard to get rid of. I rememer as a child I had them in my house. They were so gross.

Since moving out I have never had a roach but lately I have seen a few.. I am trying to find where they live but so far cant find them :(

Get a quarterly service. Bombs only force them into the walls and when it wears off they come back out. Plus the stuff exterminators use is not dangerous to pets and kids generally and if it is they put it in corners and stuff so it's harder to get to. Once you see them in the day get a exterminator out there ASAP as it will only get worse.
