In the South, boric acid is a joke.  For every roach you see, there are 18 you don't see.  So, if you have 5000 roaches, boric acid might kill 3.  I tried all the natural remedies and ended up making a bad problem worse.

It worked for us in Houston.


 


Of course, one of the things we like about living in Indianapolis (well, two of the things) is that we have not seen a roach or a fire ant.  Freezing winters help a lot.

Republicans think the glass is theirs.

Boric Acid properly applied will REDUCE -- not eliminate -- Roaches ...


They walk through the Powder, which clings to their legs and feet ... They lick it off ... In the Gut, it produces GAS, which EXPLODES the little Buggers ...


The nice thing about Boric Acid is, it's NOT a Toxic Organo-Phosphate Nervous System Poison ... and the Buggers do NOT become immune to it ...

I moved into an apartment with an infestation once.  I got the key to the apartment, opened the empty apartment and there were thousands dead on the carpet. I had the exterminators come in and fog it before we moved in.  These critters would not die.  I used boric acid also.  Didn't begin to make a dent.  Every natural remedy I could come up with. Tried those Rid X electronic devices both those with sound and the wiring thing.  The roaches would not die.  We did keep them in check a bit.   When I left, they went with me.  No matter what I do, they are there.  I can keep them in check but I can't get rid of them.

I do use it.  I just think of it as more superstition than anything. LOL  Sort of like hanging garlic over the front door.
