We have been dealing with these little bugs since we moved to Texas 5 years ago. I had never before in my life seen cockroaches. When we moved down here it was a fast trip and well we rented from the cheapest person we could find. What a mistake! Well we ended up buying a house from him(a mistake for more then one reason) and I have battle these little cockroach *&^%$!#@! ever since. I've used sprays and bombs, powders and gels. Nothing takes them away! Of course I don't think it helps that every wall we pull down is infested with nests that have obviously been there for a LONG LONG time. Well I have been looking for ways without using chemicals to help me handle these little pests. My answer is sticky mouse traps! I know it seems strange but recently I discovered that roaches really love my onions. I can no longer store them outside of the fridge at all. So I took a small onion and cut it into pieces and places a small piece in the middle of each trap. This is what I got!
Yep that is just ONE NIGHT! Keep in mind I have 4 of these down all of them have at least this many trapped. I normally don't kill that many in one day so that means not only am I not using chemicals but I am killing more :O) Ok so I probably have lost some of my readers gagging right now.lol I'll admit it is gross but hopefully this will be a tool to help finally rid this house of roaches and maybe it can help just one other person do the same. At $2 for a 4 pack I have no issues continuing to replace these every week.
