Hi there. I had a room mate living in my partially converted garage. Long story short, he is locked up for a year, so I had to clear everything out of the room and wait for one of his family members to come get the stuff. Well, I found a handful of cockroaches. I was not aware that you shouldn't fog, so unfortunately I did, just that room of course like any uninformed idiot would do lol. Anyway, now I found a very small one in the entryway, killed it and tossed the paper in the toilet. I use diatomacious earth for fleas and such, so that is sprinkled around the baseboards, and we also keep a small amount in the carpets just as a preventive measure. Used to foster dogs, and I didn't like them or my own dog having fleas. I also have almost everything food wise in airtight containers, or ziploc bags due to the fact we had some tainted oatmeal a few months back and had pantry bugs. Thankfully I haven't seen any of those in almost 2 months now. Is there any way to help prevent a roach infestation? I live in Sacramento, California. Thanks for any advice you could give.
