Help with B52's

I find one every few weeks but never in the kitchen or bathroom . Always in the living room chillin in a corner or hangin out in our closets IN our shirts this has happened twice now and Im getting a little paranoid about getting dressed. Anyway...how do you keep them to a minimum or get rid of, deter or otherwise wage an all out roach war? Is there anything that works? I went and caught the biggest gecko I could find and let it loose in the house. I found him dried up and petrified a week later so Im assuming I dont have little ones or I picked a bad gecko warrior or that was a different one.

I think B52s are just a part of life in Hawaii. I've grown up here my whole life and they just don't go away. I think certain parts of the island have more than others. Once I had one fly up my shirt at 6am screamed bloody murder )

Re: Help with B52's

ack. the title alone made my skin crawl. I'm terrified of big roaches, and if they can fly, forget it.
we live in an apt and stilll got them. we had to have the place sprayed to get rid of the bugs

Re: Help with B52's

it did. DH's uncle owns a pest control company and my BIL used to work for the uncle. BIL came and did the entire apt one day. We used to have little roaches and sometimes get the bombers. They completely stopped for awhile. slowly we get some. but the chemical is supposedly still around cause I'll find the bugs dead most of the time
