Really, you cant just kill them and gas/fumigate your house or apartment?
Sherdog has been trying to get rid of them for years and failed. Now they run the show here.
The problem with apartments is everyone has to do it or they just repopulate. Its not that hard to get rid of them temporarily, but they always come back.
motherf*****s can fly
You can just spray your door and calk the holes.
The thing about roaches, is that they eat eachother's shit and eachother's dead bodies, and they can live for a surprisingly long amount of time with no food whatsoever. That basically makes eradicating them down to the last roach almost impossible because the ones that survive can just eat eachother's feces and dead carcasses. That boric acid stuff works well though, and they start dying and eating eachother, and eventually go back to the nest and kill the rest. The gas stuff doesn't work.
Down here in the South, they can be a problem. But if you get a GOOD exterminator, you'll forget you even had them. Don't just do it once.. Keep that person on retainer like a lawyer. Make sure they keep coming back for regular re-sprays and treatments.
get a cat.
My cat killed the shit out of any living creature that ever entered my apt. minus humans.
This, spiders and Roaches avoid the fuck out of my house, my cat kills them slowly and horrifically.
interesting. mite want to get a cat now
Every quarter they should be at your house. And if you spot one you need to call that dude right then and there.
I'd rather have roaches than a fucking cat
Crazy shit about roaches is that they evolve and develop immunity to treatments so quickly. Basically if your treatment kills all but ten roaches, those remaining ten roaches will have babies that are also immune to the treatment like they were. It's f'd up.
If you live in a city apartment building, you pretty much need to just accept that roaches will routinely breach your borders.
Just learn to accept them.
my dog does the same. if a fly comes in the window, she will spend hours trying to get at it, and usually succeeds
Only works if everything is sprayed, and you aren't near any other buildings, or the roaches will just migrate within a few weeks.
Also, you're not going to seal any shit tight enough to keep them out.
Finally, Palmetto roaches live outdoors and just sneak in because that's what bugs do. You're not going to be able to gas the source like with other roaches.
My cat's name is Doug and he is one of the realest dudes I know.
in my apartment building the neighbor across from me is this Korean broad who ALWAYS cooks this super funky fish that's a delicacy or some shit, that stinks up the hallways which attracts roaches. she always has the exterminators going in & out of her place & you can see roaches always chilling around her door. a while back I noticed a few crawling in under my door so I laced the entrance intricately with borax/sugar & voila - problem solved.
