How can I get roaches out of my electronics?

I have roaches in some of my electronics, some newer stuff, still under a warranty, and don't want to void it by opening it up. For example a Playstation 3. What is the best thing to do to get them out of there?

Answer:

You can place a roach bait gel such as Maxforce FC Magnum on a piece of tin foil or plastic wrap and set it on and under the electronics. The roaches should be attracted to the gel, eat it and this will help kill the roaches. It will not stop them from dying in the device however. You could also surround the device with insect glueboards to trap the roaches as they leave to feed. Unfortunately there is nothing that we can recommend to spray into electronics because of the chance something could be damaged.
