    Baby cockroaches in my house... yuck!

    For the past entire week I keep seeing baby cockroaches in my house. They are very small and I've killed about 10 of them already. I think some damned cockroach layed eggs in my house and I'm really freaking out.

    My house is bare empty and super duper clean, I don't understand what they are doing here! Disgusting.

    I want to move back to califnornia. California isn't nearly as humid as florida is it? Maybe california has less roaches. I lived there for 3 years when I was little so I don't really remember. I'm thinking of moving back someday... I'm sick of this sticky humid floridian swampland.

    I've noticed spiders everywhere -- big ones, small ones, paper thin ones. Inside and outside the house, sometimes even in my car! Nasty. This evening, I was walking down to my basement when I saw this multi-legged creature (I'm not quite remembering what they call 'em). Yuck.

    Spiders are cool. I don't mind them in the house at all. They take care of the other bugs. But roaches...hate 'em.

    Frosty, try combat roach gel (I think it's combat). It's this gel in a syringe type tube that you put around the house. Within a few days, all dead roaches.

    It's the only thing that works for me and I'm a Florida native.

    I heard roaches are a big problem in florida if you do not spray on a regular schedule, my aunt pulled up her W/W carpet a few months ago and was infested and she is a neurotic cleaner.

    Baby cockroaches inside the house is ok, I have baby cockroaches inside my cup. I teach u a way to get rid of them, after I stop washing my cup for about 9 months, no cockroach dare go in, very effective insect repellant.

    I have been getting them everyonce in awhile. Found out the houses around me were doing some bug sprays, hence them running for cover over to my house Got the bug man out, barely see them around anymore.

    Put sections of duct tape (duck tape) in your cabinets and other places with the sticky side up. By accident, I discovered this works. I had thrown some stuff under the sink, one board had a piece of tape sticking out on it. Couple of weeks later when I looked under the sink, there were tons of baby roaches stuck to it. They were still alive, just looking up at me with those big pleading eyeballs on antennaes, so I sprayed them with permithrin

    best way if duck tape works, then buy a whole bunch of those sticky pads they use to trap mice in. My friend has some in his dad's 'wharehouse' and I accidentally stepped on one, took a little time to get off.

    They get in the house from the perimeter, so treat the perimeter with pesticide once a month.

    Those little black roach traps work pretty well

    What you're seeing is only a fraction of what you actually have.

    If you want to get rid of them for good, drop me a PM and I'll tell you what you need to do.

    Just stay away from hot and humid areas and live in cold and dry areas. I haven't seen even an ant for a long time here. No bugs or anything are a problem here. I would simply recommend you to move back to California. Florida isn't a very good place to live in my opnion.

    Heh, yeah the little buggers get annoying. But I have noticed there are never any middle size roaches, so the babies must die or head outdoors before they grow up. It is building up to the wet season here now, so I guess I'll be seeing more soon.
