    You must also be sure that any area that is dirty, has food waste or available water is cleaned up or they will continue to live with you.

    I have rid many a place of roaches by doing the following. Buy a large amount of roach powder. Clean up all areas and start by putting a one to two inch path of powder around the outside perimeter of the building. Remove all plug plates and blow in powder into wall cavitie. Replace plates. Check to see if there are any gaps arouno plumbing coming through the walls. If so blow in powder and seal with aerosol styrofoam. Remove all bottom drawers and clean and then powder generously. Pull out stove, fridge, washer and dryer and do the same. If you can lift the top of your stove to get under your burners, clean and powder also. Now clean the inside of under the sink cabinets and remove any stored newspapers or cardboard boxes from property. Roaches can live off the glues of cardboard and love corrugated cardboard. Now put a line about 1/2 inch of powder along every interior wall. If it rains replace the exterior powder as soon as it is dry outside. It takes about two weeks to kill them all but it works. The powder is not highly toxic to pets but read all instructions for advice around pets and children. Mine never had a problem, and my friends who I helped with this method also did not have problems. In apartments of you are doing this method it works best if all the tenants do this method on the same day and keep the perimeter of the building with the barrier border Of powder. Every time you bring a cardboard box in or even a paper sack you potentially bring in roaches. For every one you see there are possibly 100 more in the walls. When you start this you will see lots of bodies. The rest are dying in the walls. This will also take care of silverfish. Good luck. It works. Remember these are real survivors you are dealing with. One of the oldest insects in existence.
