Thank you, Sonya.
I've got boric acid, I'll just go find some bait traps.
Appreciate your responding.   :)

 :)  Dear Carlala,
I have recently used boric acid on ants and roaches. I bought the boric acid at a local Feed and Seed Store, and they were very helpful.  The bottle I
bought for $4 will last a life time.  The baits were inexpensive and can be reused.   It took about 3 weeks for the majority to die down.   But it was worth the wait.  There is now only a few ants and I have refilled the bait containers and I am sure that they will be gone soon.
Hope this helps.
Sonya ;D

Get rid of cockroaches w/o pesticides?

I would like to hear any input from someone who has been able to get rid of cockroaches successfully inside and or outside the home. I just sprayed a bunch of stuff, and also used pellets from the hardware store that were to kill them in the lawn, but they are still out there. I know Boric acid is a help. I read the info on ants, and was wanted to learn a bit more about the roaches. Do they have a nest, like the ants, where you want them to take the poison (boric acid) to? Thank you for any input!
