    Hi Janie,

    What kind of bugs are they?

    Hi ! Try using diatomaceous earth ! It is an all natural substance that is safe to use around kids and pets !

    use vaccum every day for a while.

    try a dry powdered mixture of equal spoonfuls of 20 mule team Borax and

    white sugar. place on small pieces of paper towel, out of sight or where

    ever you see insects. also works for ants, inside and outdoors.

    Yes, Borax and table sugar mixed 50/50 takes care of most bugs inside. Place where you see them, along their trails, etc. Be sure to place some near sinks. You need not put this on a paper towel - you can sprinkle it around, put in small dishes or whatever you prefer/have around.

    It takes a little while for this to work as it eats through ant's, roaches' exoskeletons.

    Make sure you inspect your home carefully!

    Caulk or otherwise seal all openings around windows, pipes, doorways, etc. Make sure your screens are all intact and have small enough screening for the bugs in your area. Remove all crumbs and garbage from your home promptly. Wash dishes promptly. Clean kitchen area thoroughly.

    Diatomaceous earth is the best way to get rid of bugs. It kills them. It's the ONLY thing we found to get rid of ours. And we had these bugs for over a year. Got mine at Lowe's for$7.98 a bag. Best investment I ever made.
