    all this rain has forced a couple of roaches into my garage. fine. but i'm not going to tolerate one in my home. before i call an exterminator or go to home depot and buy a gallon of something, is the there an old tried and true remedy to cure this problem before it begins? thanks

    They used to sell some stuff called Roach Proof, I think it was just finely ground Borax, it does work though, I heard one time that how it works is the borax is sharp enough it cuts their legs and they bleed to death

    Sounds kinda out there but how ever it does it it works

    Boric Acid is what you are after.

    It kills insects by destroying nerves. What's nice is they carry it back to the nest and it ends up killing dozens of them.

    Do a Google search for 'how to kill cockroaches with boric acid.'

    I was thinking waiting til dark and putting a Krispy Kreme in the middle of the kitchen floor...after all is quiet being ready with a .410 auto loaded with #9's...flip the light on and start blasting...the wife will be a little upset with the holes in the hardwood but the roaches will be dead..the rest will leave and tell their buddies bout that crazy man and move next door...don't thank me..just being a good friend : )
