I was working in the flower beds in the back yard. Mulch, sand, topsoil, cow manure....a breeding ground for roaches. Then I look at the weep holes in my brick......the only thing missing is a tiny neon sign that reads, "Bug Bar"......
Here's a safe way if you have pets, to get rid of them...
Cockroaches are the most common insects, numbering more than 5 thousand species of different roaches. Their ability to adapt to any situation allows them to survive under the most inappropriate conditions. Scientists suggest that roaches can survive even a nuclear explosion. This fact makes them invulnerable and leaves us so little chance to get rid of roaches.
cockroaches can transmit up to 50 species of bacteria, infectious diseases, typhoid fever, dysentery, poliomyelitis, gastroenteritis and intestinal worm eggs. Running about garbage cans, basements, and excrements, they catch infections to their legs. And then roaches can come into contact with your products and dishes.
cockroaches build up a tolerance to any kind of roach killer and become immune to them
Some chemicals will kill some species of roaches but not all. Especially if that species has acquired an immunity to that particular chemical.
One of the best products available is a gel bait
