Hi Bobbie I don’t have any problems with roaches either but I did with mice and rats. So far the problem has been greatly reduced. Have’nt seen mice or rats for quite some time but I still leave instant potatoes around. Yes, I have animals….. 3 dogs, and over 50 birds …. I love birds. Have from Cockatoos to Finchs. Glad you like the posting. I thought everyone would like to try it. It really worked for me.
