You can win the war against roaches: Fill in every crack in your space with steel wool using a butter knife or similar implement. When you see a roach, follow it back to its entry point and fill that space in with steel wool. It takes about two weeks. I have roach-proofed two apartments in my life: one in Ottawa and another in Montreal.

In Ottawa, the guy downstairs – the guy who didn’t want to spray -- knocked at our door one day asking if our roach problem had gotten worse? Poor guy couldn’t stop rubbing himself all over. He had a bad case of the willies.

Good luck. -- Martin
