Do you use aerosol sprays instead of baits? Sprays only kill the bugs that you see and spray on. Did you know that when you see one cockroach, there are usually at least more hiding somewhere else in your home?

I call the landlord if I have a problem with roaches and ants. I have used bug bombs before. they work, but they are a pain. I find very frequent vacuuming works as well as anything to get rid of ants. Usually, they live in the walls anyway and require professional removal - at least that is my rental experience with bugs.

Anys won't cross baby powder. Don't ask me why. I put it down if I see any and then they are gone. As for roaches, I would call the landlord and get an exterminator. If you live in Texas, you're gonna have roaches no matter how clean you are. They are a fact of life here. Normally I only see them in the garage during the summer.
