Does anyone know how to get rid of water bugs? Besides closing holes in bathrooms and kitchens, I heard that putting moth balls around these areas will prevent them from coming into apartments.

Roachs, boric acid and diatomious earth.

The earth is small crustation shells and cuts the roachs where they lose all body fluids.

This is from a National Geographic about 40 years ago.

Roaches are a sign of filth. Remove all food sources. Don't leave any dirty dishes EVER. Clean everything with bleach. Call Orkin. Roaches can and will eat the glue off of linoleum. If you are in an apartment there is nothing you can do about nasty neighbors. Roaches come in with pet foods, potatoes and other things from the grocery store. Clean away debris on the perimeter of your house. If none of this works you should burn the place down.
