The last home owners were real pigs and left a mess for us to clean up. And their messy habits attracted bugs. And, now bugs are starting to poke their heads out of the walls and run around. I've read that bugs don't come out of the walls until there are so many that they can't find free room. Don't know if that's true, but I've been spraying bug spray like crazy. I don't really like using bug spray because of my daughter and cats. Both get into everything, so it's not safe to use poison spray. I'd like to order some Boric Acid online. That should take care of the bug problem within a week. How often do you spray for bugs in your house? How do you get rid of bugs or cockroaches? Any suggestions?
