Get Rid Of Roaches

Do you have roaches and can't get rid of them? Take powdered boric acid and sprinkle it under the refrigerator, the stove, by the drain, in all the cracks and crevices. Use a baster to blow it into the hard to get to places and leave it there. It will take about 10 days, but it works like a charm. Boric acid is toxic so take care if you have children or pets.

Get Rid Of Roaches

I found boric acid at my local dollar store in a bottle that looks like a catchup bottle. I also found a great safe alternative, that I am trying. It is an equal mix of powdered sugar and baking soda. They said it is toxic to the little buggers and it even kills the others that feed off of them. I am going to use both. Wish you luck and a bug free future. (09/21/2005)

Get Rid Of Roaches

I have the best solution and it really works. My mom lives in an apartment and she's had a major and I mean major roach infestation. Someone suggested she boil some eggs, using the yellow core mixed with the boric acid together and place it in an aluminum sheet folded like a tiny bowl or even in the egg shell around the house, especially the kitchen. Make as many as you wish not just one. Anyway, she has no roaches and for a long time now, unbelievable, but true. Do this every 3-4 months. (01/10/2008)
