Re: Cockroaches in apartment
It doesn’t matter how clean you are nor how much the rent costs, with temperatures in the 30’s you’re likely to get cockroaches.
My suggestion is to spray, spray, and then spray some more in the morning and especially in the late afternoon.
You can go to “L’araignée rouge” as suggested by John but you can also find effective products in a Coop, Migros, Denner, Manor and many other outlets .
Don’t forget to spray ceilings, window frames and sills, doorsteps (including the one outside your apartment). Also dispose of your rubbish, particularly edible stuff, as quickly as possible after use, eating, etc.
One of my own “tricks” is to wear sun glasses and mask my nose and mouth while spraying (to avoid any droplets arriving where it hurts) and when I’ve finished I then wash my hands thoroughly – just in case any of the product has landed there.
Unfortunately, mosquitos also find me ultra-tasty so I have to use insect repellant every day but that does also help to keep the cockroaches somewhat at bay.
Sorry if all this sounds a bit daunting but this weather too will pass, inshal’la and we’ll be back to our woollies and wellies in no time.
Meanwhile, all the best, R.
