About four months ago, a house two houses down had the tenants evicted. The owners spent the past several months cleaning the place, including ripping out ruined carpet.
About two months ago, we started seeing fallout from this renovation: apparently, the evicted tenants were flat nasty, and when the owners started cleaning the place up, a host of roaches fled in every direction.
Including my next door neighbor's place. And mine.
No worries, I thought--I put out a butt-ton of baits, and figured the population would dwindle and die off.
That...hasn't happened. In fact, it seems as if I have about quadrupled my roach population.
I do not know what to do. I don't want to spray--I have cats and kids. I don't want to set out unsheltered poison for the same reason. Same with bug bombs.
Anybody have any suggestions?
