10th of February to 5th of April. That’s how long the bug bombs lasted. 54 days.
Last night I found two cockroaches, alive and kicking. Not sure how they made their way back into the house, but there they were — one in the livingroom, one in the main bedroom. Yeuchhh. And I’d found a dead one the previous day.
Yes, they’re back.
Possible courses of action that spring to mind:
- Spray around likely points of entry: doorways, fireplace, windows that get regularly opened
- Find the special cockroach bomb (the last lot was a generic bug bomb) which would be more effective, particularly since there appears to be a local infestation somewhere
- Call in the professionals
- Napalm/firebomb the whole house. Raze it to the ground and build something else. Probably prohibitively expensive. And anyway, I like my house.
