I'm a total city dweller with two hens. I sometimes go out at night just to make sure they went off to roost safely. (Their house is inside a predator protected run so I don't need to lock them up at night.) Anyway, I've been seeing a cockroach or two at night. ACK!!! I put out a heavy sprinkling of DE but the rain washes it in and the girls do a good job kicking the rest of it into the ground too. So I decided to go out with a flashlight and my pest pistil filled with DE and just go hit them directly. It doesn't kill them right away which is such a buzz kill. And the four white roaches running around after I spritzed them was really gross. I know I'll need to do this for several weeks to make a dent. So I'm really just venting more than anything. I don't want to go the poison route. Not yet. I'd go with a sticky trap but I'm worried about catching other things on it. I've read about boric acid and maybe I'll try that around the outside of the run. Anyone else have this issue?
