Oriental Roach

Asked June 1, 2016, 12:00 PM EDT

I'm seeing Oriental Roaches in my basement that seem to make it to the 1st floor of my home. How do I get rid of them? They die. I sweep. And, within a few days, I see more.

Start with a few of the sanitation methods outlined in the attached publication. Also, invest in a dehumidifier, moisture is one of the key ingredients needed for their survival.The box stores have pesticides containing boric acid available to homeowners.http://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG15_Cockroaches.pdf
