Use Roach Pruf - you can get it at Walmart or most hardware stores. It kills the EGGS that have nested. It takes a couple of weeks, but works GREAT.

How in the world did it get that bad & them not know it or try to do something about it???
I have family that lives close by there & they said the people where the roaches came from had trash on top of trash piled up @ their house. That is just sorriness cause there is trash pick up in town but you do have to set it out for them to pick it up.
I think the home owner & renters should have to pay to get rid of the roaches.

Just because there is one nasty person working at Lee Health & Rehab.. I don't think it should be a reflection of all the workers there.. Just saying.. Theres some really nice/clean people who work there & do not deserve to have that as a reflection of them. Believe me everyone would love to see her out of there.

What kind of place has an ordinance that kids toys cannot be in the yard or is this just some kind of bullying from him to scare people.

I remember years ago when i moved into an apartment and got roaches. we moved into a new house and brought them with us. it took a while to kill them out completely but if you work at it and keep bombing/spraying they will be gone. it's been years and years since i have even seen one. just put the effort into it. someone would have to be nasty or pathetic to live knee deep in cockroaches and not do a dam thing but lay in them. even if they kept coming back at least you could keep them to a minimum.
