Roaches

Asked June 7, 2016, 10:18 AM EDT

Do you know of any tried and true remedies for these disgusting bugs? My parents live in an area where houses are so close together you can stand between them and not even be able to stretch your arms out to your sides. And you can see the roaches traveling between homes if you kick around the grass just a bit.

Hello. Thank you for your question. I have attached a link to an educational publication dealing with cockroaches. You may also want to bring a specimen (dead) to your local Cooperative Extension Office for identification and further assistance. I have included that information below.
