UberSaur will use Boric Acid against the Roach Driver Competition in DC, then.. UberPeople.net drivers exempt, of course!If you are going to rent in DC, you are going to have roaches. It is a given. You can sweep, mop, take out the gar-BAH-hay three times daily, you still will have roaches. All of these fancy chemicals that the exterminator (for which the landlord pays) uses are ineffective. The roaches are immune to them before they hit the market. There is one thing to which they never become immune, though. When I rented, people used to ask me what the white powder was along the walls and on the part of my counter tops where they met the walls.
Boric acid. It explodes or corrodes their digestive tracts and they die. They carry it back to the nest, the nestlings lick it off the legs, it explodes or corrodes their digestive tracts, as well. It is the only thing that I ever have seen that works consistently. It is messy, but it keeps away the roaches.
