My family just moved into a late 40s home 2 weeks ago, which we absolutely love. Okay, it's taking my oldest teenage daughter some getting used to. It sat empty for a few years before the owner decided to sell it after going into assisted living. Before moving in there were rats, but those have been taken care of and I've cleaned this house top to bottom, sterilizing. During that time I only saw 1 dead Palmetto bug in the sunroom. Tonight I went to grab a snack and opened the silverware drawer to find a small roach scurry around the drawer. Yuck,in our silverware??? I ordered some Maxforce bait stations as they seem to get good reviews, but I really have to get rid of these suckers (I'm imagining there is more than just the 1). The house is clean, I never leave food out or dirty dishes in the sink. There is no clutter. We just moved in, no time for clutter yet.
Any other suggestions besides the Maxforce? I've never had to deal with this before and want to get rid of the problem once and for all even if I need to keep some kind of bait out long-term.
