Thanks, a friend of mine mentioned using boric acid when she lived in Alabama for a while. I forgot all about that. I put some traps down Monday and haven't seen anything in them yet. The instructions say to move them if nothing shows up after a few days so I'll probably shift them around a bit. This is good info, since I'd imagine we will have similar issues with a house.Hi, Bilbo 86
I live in the subtropics called Florida. The state insect is the Cockroach and it's illegal to kill them. No, just kidding. I used a cockroach lure that is basically boric acid. It is non-toxic to kids and pets and has no odor. Sprinkle it in the corners and near the walls and cabinets. They will start dying off right away. The boric acid clogs their gills and they suffocate. The eggs will hatch and it will get them too. Reapply in about 6 months. My roaches are gone now for over 2 years since using it. You can get the roach lure by a couple of names at ACOE Hardware and Lowe's. Just be sure it has 'Boric Acid' as the ingredient.
