I just saw one of them run across our counter this morning and my skin just crawled.  How do you get rid of them without poison or the traps that spread guts everywhere?  

My mom had to use traps and there was ick on the counter every time.  I have 3 kids and a dog and I don't want to risk someone finding the poison if I lay it out is all.  Are there any other ways to get the buggers gone short of asking the landlord to call an exterminator?  I would ask him but he's selling the place and us completely unwilling to put ANY mone into the place

Thanks!

i do traps... i live in the country and get them in the spring and fall.... my skin use to crawl... no i find it amusing when i hear a trap snap! Dh just saw one in our garage yesterday and nothing in the traps yet so we shall see! I just spend way more time cleaning in the process of riding the house of them.

I live in the burbs and get them in spring even though dh patrols the grounds for holes or cracks they still manage, snap traps rids us quick and easy

Sticky paper and there are also humane traps that won't hurt it and you can set it free out side
