“Look for fecal droppings in specific places, such as inside cabinets. Folks who have been traveling should have their suitcases and clothes inspected also. In places where food is stored, like restaurants, carefully inspect packages coming in and make sure cardboard boxes are cleared before they accumulate.”

“I’m not sure there are any new tricks of the trade in cockroach control, but remember what Dr. [Austin] Frishman has always taught: education, inspection, identification, treatment, monitor and follow-up. Also, only two cockroaches live inside: brown-banded and German. That means deal with their control and prevention outside.”
