Flying cockroaches
« on: August 02, 2019, 08:44:33 AM »
One was flying right at me in my bedroom last night. Never knew they could fly.

Best recommendations for getting rid of these from my home, please.
Thank you.

Yes, some can fly now.  Probably time to move.

Those are horrifying, aren't they.

And no, you don't have to move, you can get rid of those. Exterminators can help; I put my own raid capsules (for eggs and for adult palmettos) in areas with humidity. The nuclear solution is those aerosol-looking raid cans, that you open and leave for 24 hours, and those are good if you can leave your apartment for that long (and don't mind risking cancer). On the more natural side, I've heard people swear by bay leaves and boric acid. Also, fill and caulk any holes in the bathroom, kitchen, baseboard where they might find an entrypoint etc. And make sure your building has exterminator services regularly. Good luck!

Serious advice, crawl around your apartment looking for ANY openings where the wall meets the floor.

Never forget, the way there bodies are designed they can get thru openings as small as 1/4 inch, even the big ones! :(
Get yourself some caulking & seal them up. Trust me, it is essential if you never want to see them again!!

Good Luck
