Angry how-to get rid of roaches

What's the best ovtc roach killer. I have used a hundred diff linds and still have roaches.
If I could only find some chloradane but I know it it outlawed.
I used it in the 60's and it works but it is outlawed for a good reason.
Anyone got ideas ?

Hi Johnniee,

I really can't say what is the best over the counter measure as I've not had to use one in many years. This site has environmentally friendly ideas and will help you to id which ones you have which will be helpful to find the appropriate bait or product to use.

Boric acid powder.

Well known brand:Roach Prufe but there are many others.

Check ingredients for product strength.Look for those versions around 99% product.

Roach Prufe has a site and it will show this material to be considered safer.
