Hello, y'all! This is my first time posting and I am looking for advice. I started off looking for a natural flea control for my new twin puppies and saw roaches mentioned.
Recently my kitchen sink has sprung a leak underneath which I cannot aford to fix. This, apparently, drew roaches as I've lived here since I was a teen and have never seen one before (I am almost 39 now.) I am on a list for housing and a fixed income but I need a way to control these monsters until I can get out of this old mobile home. Diatomaceous earth seems like a good thing, but I am only reading about ants, aphids, and fleas. Can anyone give me anything about DE and roaches?? My mom told me to get some boric acid, but I am not confortable with laying this around my counters knowing my cat is chasing after the roaches when she sees one. I also have an annual any problem, but I have always managed that just fine.
I simply cannot stand these things with my new puppies, my cat, and my 5 yr old rot/beagal. I am also sitting a cat for a friend and I need to clear this up. Honestly, I would prefer mice, at least Trinity (my cat) and Tilly can hunt those!
