Oh no! There are ants in your house. They have got to be one of the worst things to find in your home. Your first reaction is to get the fly spray and take them out there and then. And it's understandable because they're probably on your kitchen counters, stove or sink.  You can’t have such a filthy insect roaming freely where you live.

Cockroaches are considered one of the more dangerous insects to our health. They have been around for year and are mainly found in restaurants, schools, supermarkets, our homes and most other indoor areas. Roaches are such nasty pests because they carry diseases, spread bacteria and contaminate food. They can also trigger allergic reactions and cause respiratory illnesses such as asthma. Aggressive methods of treating cockroach infestations require potent pesticides which can also pose serious health risks with poor results. The best long term method to get rid of roaches is to prevent them even getting into your house in the first place. One of the best ways to do that is with Boric Acid.
