I've had Borid down in my kitchen for a month and the roaches are only getting worse.

I'm careful not to leave food out.

Answer:

It is important to understand that Borid Boric Acid Dust is only going to work on those roaches that actually comes into contact with it. The majority of roaches live in cracks, crevices and wall voids and only come out when absolutely necessary. Borid Boric Acid Dust has nothing in it to actually attract the roaches so it must be strategically placed into the places where roaches live and it takes several days for the roaches to actually die after they ingest the dust during which time they can continue to breed. We recommend using a roach bait gel, an insect growth regulator and an insecticide spray for faster results. Please check out our Roach Control Kit # 2. This kit comes with all of the components to control roaches quickly.
