I found a GREAT site. Talcum powder is lethal to them, so I can put that in my vacuum then vacuum 'em up to kill them (not my solution, just a temporary clean up thing). I also can put my cat food bowls onto a platter/plate covered with talcum to keep the ants out of that.
Talc is finely ground silica dioxide, the stuff can cause respiratory problems in people who work wth it, like silicosis if it is the wrong size. I would be worried about the cats breathing the stuff but its a trade off between the pesticides or the respiratory exposure. Yuck either way. Good to know about the talc to put it is places the cats won't go- just not under their food bowl.
I miss Cycle- he is the chemical engineer.

Just for the record, the CAN fly, but in my encounters over the last 30 years or so, they rarely do. Of course when they do you run for the hills like its raining bullets.

Seriously, cockroaches, no matter what name you give them are disgusting. How do you guys live with them down there?

We live in S.Florida and have almost zero problems with pests, too many good bug sprays available...get the big gallon size with the handle sprayer, Menards, Lowes, Home Depot.....also "Terro" Liquid ant baits are peril to any indoor ants....it's not hard at all.....One thing, this far south is, you keep your home closed with central AC on 5-6 months, every year....

I live in a rental home, so my landlord (thankfully) pays for an exterminator! It wasn't originally in the lease, but once I saw a couple of palmettos, they offered and it REALLY makes a difference! And the bug guy gives me industrial strength baits to put in cabinets and drawers, too.

This made me laugh.

When I lived in Alabama, my BF lived for awhile with her boyfriend in a really old house that had been split into 4 apartments. They were on the first floor and at the time the upstairs neighbors had a dog that they left alone for a few days with a big bag of dog food. Of course the dog knocked the bag over and spread the food all over and that drew the horde of cockroaches that literally started falling from the ceiling on us as we tried to watch TV one night.

That did not make me laugh.

And the dog was peeing and pooping in the place, too.
