You will need a combination of tools to eliminate them quickly and effectively. Some methods are more effective than others. The key is to know the weaknesses of each approach and compensate for the weakness. This strategy is not for the price conscious consumer. Other techniques work well, but take more time.
Don't rely on one technique or product. Get them with everything that's possible.
Step 1- Get the Nest
To get the nest, you must first locate it. Most likely it will be near a water source. Put out roach baits to find out where the largest concentrations are.
Once you discover the nest, spray it with the strongest roach killer you can find. Clean up every aspect of the areas with a bleach.
Step 2- Boric Acid Powders
Put boric acid dust into the baseboards and crevices. Anywhere there might be a little damp area throw in some dust. The dust will dry the area and help kill roaches.
Step 3- Bait
Put boric acid bait all over the house. Put the bait under sinks, in crevices, under counters, or anywhere you find the roaches to be. Even put the bait where you don't they they'll go; that way a wandering roach won't set up a new nest.
Step 4- Insecticide inside the Home or Business
Spray your flooring and baseboards with insecticide. It is faster at killing roaches than boric acid. The combination of this and getting the nest will take out many of the roaches quickly. You could even fumigate the entire home. This, however, isn't an ideal or necessary option, but it will work quickly.
Step 5- Eliminate Water and Food Sources
Just like humans, water is more crucial than food. Don't allow any water to be standing in the home. Roaches like to live in drains so you can pour bleach down the drains of all your sinks to kill them. If you are a “die hard", turn off the water to your home until the infestation is gone. For toilet bowls, add insecticide or a fair amount of bleach to the water.
All food should be tightly sealed in plastic containers. There should not be a possible morsel for a roach to eat. The only problem is that they eat about everything. Keep paper products and soap stored in tightly sealed containers as well. We could talk about wallpaper and books, but how far do you really want to go?
Step 6- Keep House Cool
Roaches like hot humid areas. Keep your home as cool as possible. Small appliances can be bagged and put in the freezer to kill roaches.
Step 7- Get Rid of Infested Appliances
If you have a lot of them, it's likely they have made home in the appliances. In this case, get rid of them.
Step 8- Leave a Trail of Food and Water
Make a trail of food and water that leads to your neighbor's house. Since roaches are nocturnal, stay up at night and watch them with night vision. They will leave your house and go to the neighbors. If you don't like to kill bugs, this might be your best option.
The best solution and most economical solution is roach bait. It lasts up to one year and is very effective. Mrf 2000 roach bait is a proprietary boric acid bait formula used by pest control companies worldwide.
