GUEST,Tony BS: Roach Infestation!!! (51* d) RE: BS: Roach Infestation!!! 15 Sep 12

I once moved into an apartment where the roaches were so bad they'd run across my plate while I was eating.

Sprays and bombs only got rid of them temporarily. But when I sprinkled boric acid along all the baseboards, that solved it permanently. I never saw another roach in the three years I lived there.

Of course, that doesn't mean there weren't any. Just that I didn't see any. I read a book about roaches that said they avoid people if at all possible, so if you see a roach it means you have so many of them that there are no more places to hide.

And it said a roach can have three thousand offspring per year. And they send the little ones out into your apartment to forage, and when they go back to hide the big ones eat them.

And it said the reason boric acid works so well is because it's an irritant. They get it on their legs and it bothers them so they lick it off. But then it causes gas inside, and they can't fart so their insides explode. And then the big ones in hiding eat them and they get the gas and explode.
