They're disgusting! They carry diseases! And, sooner or later you'll likely find some roaches in your home, even with excellent housekeeping skills. What's the best way to get rid of them? To help us answer that question we've asked Kara Johnston of to join us on The Dollar Stretcher Interview.

Get Rid of Roaches Safely

TDS Reader Contributors

"I have tried everything to get rid of roaches, and I really need help. I am scared they will bite my kids or make them sick. I don't have much money so I was hoping you could give me some cheap ways to take care of it. I live in a very wooded area, and I am worried for my children. I would appreciate any tips you have."

"Help! I'm desperate. I need a natural remedy for roaches. I'm being bombarded and have tried having the house sprayed several times. The critters will not leave. I've also tried spraying it myself. I need advice on something that will really get rid of roaches."

Getting Rid of Roaches

TDS Reader Contributors

"Help, I can't get rid of roaches. I've tried so many chemicals the family and pets should be dead. I can't afford a monthly fee to have someone come in all the time. I've emptied every cupboard and have sprayed, powdered and sealed. Nothing works. They leave during the day but at night are back and it seems they bring more friends. My walls, baseboards and cupboards are being ruined by the constant spraying. Is there any help out there?"
