boric acid that comes in a powder. Walmart carries it , be careful if you have pets.

I use to manage apartments and would have to clean after tenants moved out. I agree, the best way to get rid of roaches is boric acid.

Get the Boric acid... acouple of things of it actually...the big ones! Drill holes near the floor under your cabinets in kitchen, bathrooms, under fridge, stove etc. If they are really bad do it about every 16 inches in the walls just above your baseboards. Goal should be to put a thin layer of dust over the entire voided spaces...but don't put it out where kids and pets can get to it.
There is a small space between the floor and the floor of your cabinets you need to drill a hole just big enough that the tip of the Boric acid will fit and give a couple of squirts

Thanks for posting about this :) we live in an apartment in the middle of two others and got them when one of our neighbors moved out and no one lived there for like a month so they decided they'd come live with us lol I asked my dad how well it workEd and he said the roaches get it on their feet and then carry it back to the others. I'm gonna go but some tomorrow and hopeful get rid of these little pests!

You can make a mixture of flour, boric acid and a few diced onions. Add water to make it form small balls. The onions attract the roaches and the boric acid kills them. Place them behind your fridge, stove, in the corners of your kitchen cabinets. It won't take long and your problem will be solved.

they are the best. my parents had roaches all my life and could never get rid of them. i called able pest control and they came and sprayed one time and told me that when they sprayed the second time that would be it if they had to come back a third time it was free. they never had to come back a third time it has been 20 years and my parents have never seen another roach in their house.
