My daughters mother-n-Law brought roaches into my daughter's trailer Home. What is best over-the-counter "Killer" for roaches?
She cannot afford an exterminator fee to get rid of them. I KNOW an exterminator pest control would be best- but she can't afford it.
Also, she has two small children in the house- and would want it not to be harmful to her children.

Demon- It is around $40 a pint but makes about 30 gallons per spray- it is sold @ Hardy Sales on Division St.

The little boxes with glue on the inside worked for me several years ago when I rented a condo. The first night I was there, I discovered the place was full of roaches. I put those little roach motels or whatever they call them, in the kitchen cabinets, on the kitchen counters and other places where the roaches were. Took a few days, but I finally got rid of them.

the BEST old school remedy is BORIC ACID in a powder form. You can buy it at Fondren's Hardware. Sprinkle it out in the back of your cabinets. The roach walks through it and then the roach dies. And it lasts and lasts and lasts...

works great for ants also. You can buy it in a box by the detergents at Hays.

No, "demon wp" costs too much. buy "cyper wp" (at about 1/2 the price), same ingredients. I bought it on amazon. I don't know if they sell it in Blytheville. Use the "roundup" sprayer that you can buy at wal-mart and/or lowes.

1. Boric acid - but you have to be careful where you put it.

2. Cyper WP (generic form of demon wp)- for use inside and out. when it dries, animals and kids can walk on it, etc. Must have like a roundup 2 gallon sprayer though. WATCH the youtube video on how to use it; it works great if you follow the instructions. Kills all roaches, spiders, crickets, ants, etc. spray a little up in shed corners and it keeps wasps out. it works from 3 to 6 months, from my experience.

PLUS .... use 2 to 3 scoops per gallon, not 1 scoop as per directions (with the Cyper wp).
