We recently purchased a home that has smoky brown roaches. Of course the house inspector and pest inspector both claim that they didn't see any infestation, however they're certainly in the house. I immediately called an exterminator to bomb the attic and spray the outside of the house. The inside of the house could not be sprayed because I was having the hardwood floors refinished at the time. After doing a ton of research online I learned about the habits of these roaches and how to most effectively get rid of them. I sealed and caulked gaps in baseboards, windows etc. I've baited the fireplace and attic and dusted with boric acid. I closed off the fireplace with plastic (which is one of the main ways they were entering the house). This seems to have stopped the roaches from freely coming in the house. Now I'm finding baby roaches and I'm trying to figure out were the nest is. Sometimes they're dead and sometimes they're alive but then I kill them. I have my house baited with Advion Syngeta roach gel and DuPont Roach bait disks. I've also placed several Gentrol IGR disks all over the areas I've seen the babies. What else can I do? Any suggestions? I feel like I've done way more than any exterminator would have done and I've seen results but now I need to knock out these babies before they grow up and replicate. I should also mention that we completely tore out the kitchen of this new house. I've also gotten rid of all the appliances the house came with too. This probably helped a lot. PLEASE HELP with any suggestions on how to tackle these baby roaches. THANK YOU!!!
