DOES DIY COCKROACHES WORK?
There are couple of reasons DIY pest control is doomed to fail. Firstly the DIYer lacks experience as a result their efforts drive the cockroaches into crack and crevice. Making them even harder to get on top of! Secondly the cockroach has survival mechanism that defeats your efforts. When stressed females flick away their ootheca ( sack of baby cockroaches) to safety. The adult female dies and then two weeks later customers report seeing lots and lots of little cockroaches! Lastly the EPA restricts the public from buying the best chemicals at the most effective strength.
