  •  A very cheap way to get rid of roaches is (0+ / 0-)

    to put out dishes filled with half-and-half powdered sugar and plaster of paris.

    The sugar attracts them, and then the plaster of paris sets up inside them, preventing them from breeding.  Just sweep them up and throw them away.

    A trick I heard about that restaraunts use is they set out saucers with fresh-sliced cucumbers.  Supposedly keeps the roaches out of sight during health department inspections.  At least that would keep them away from your bed at night!

    Good luck!
