    Thanks for the tip about the crickets, I never knew that. I already knew about the chalk with ants….but my grief comes from those little lizards/geckos. How do we get rid of those?

      Lizards eat bugs, keep ’em. How much greener can you get?

    Our roaches don’t go for sugar but borax and cornmeal does the trick.

      Hey there,

      Right on point on both.

      I’d be a little leery of having Borax in my house (is that stuff safe?) but I hear ya on the “lizzies”!

        Well, boric acid, anyway. You can get it at a pharmacy, it’s used as an eye wash. Put the stuff in a can with a plastic lid that you can cut a slot in so the bugs can get in.

    Hey David, great info you have here. I’m always looking for ways to save money and living in south florida, bugs are pretty common. I’ve learned that with little tips such as the ones you have above and using a smaller family owned pest control company saves so much more money than calling in the big boys for damage control once the bugs do their wear and tear. So thanks again for the advice and I’ll let you know how some of those tips work when I try them at home :)
