    Default Cockroachs!!!

    Help!! Tell me how to get rid of them!!! Our new rental has soooo many tiny ones...realestate is (hopefully) organizing pest control but i need something sooner.
    I've tried just spraying along the edges of all rooms.. cant use the mortein bombs because the fumes will get on all the furniture.
    Any tried and tested methods will be greatly appreciated!!

    You can use the bombs if you have furniture, they're not restricted to vacant houses, you do realise that don't you?

    I used them a few months ago and will do it again soon as we're on a farm and flies somehow keep getting in. Furniture isn't an issue.

    Oh and you can just put sheets over the TV or anything you want to protect.

    Burn the house down! It's the only way!
    But the baits that you put under the oven/fridge/cupboards do help a bit too.
    We were previously in a ground floor, inner city apartment (so total cockroach heaven) and we'd only see one every few months with these. I'm sure there were still many more around as they're pretty impossible to get rid of completely but at least we didn't have the whole turn the light on and see a hundred of them scurry away thing. *shudders*

    Thanks alot everyone!
    I haven't unpacked alot of things because I'm worried about them getting into things..
    Will use the bombs than...
    I have the baits around the place already.
    Was freaked out today when i saw only crawling on my baby while she was on her rocker! Called the realestate and gave em an earful for delaying the pest control!

    Oh yuck! Yeah the bombs are good, and of course remember to use them in each room.
