How To Get Rid Of Cockroaches Without An Exterminator

by Tia G. Growing up, I had the pleasure of never seeing a roach, except on T.V. I grew up with the assumption that only dirty people had roaches. When I moved to Texas, I found out how wrong that assumption was. Even the cleanest of homes can get infested with roaches and it doesn’t take much. My first apartment in Texas appeared to be clean.
