I disagree. back when we had a roach problem, a boric acid treatment always resulted in us finding a pretty
good number of dead roaches, tits up, in various parts of the hose, in the days following the treatment.
And, it seemed to keep them down for some time.
We used the "Roach Prufe" brand packaged version.
In the environment that i work.. Ive seen
roach prufe,boric acid, roach away etc etc etc..used. At times used so much that it is almost a health issue for those using it. Let alone unsightly in how much they used around their homes.
The only way i have seen folks Not get or keep to a "once a year sighting" is to stay clean #1, and have a set treatment schedule. Either by themselves or a company.
Myself. I like using Ortho home defense Max sprays and a actual roach bait.
I spray twice a month, bait every 4 weeks and the most i have ever seen is when some folks moved in a few months back.
Ive got to try to keep my work "roach" free and Boric acid is 100 spots down the list on things i would use here or what my contractors would use.
But then again .gov housing is the bug version of Monrovia vs a private owned home
