AVRAM asks: "I'm looking for something I can use to stop a roach problem in my bathroom. I live in an apartment so I don't have the ability to stop roaches everywhere, just in my apartment. I don't allow my cats in the bathroom, but I don't want anything that could be tracked out or would kill them if they accidentally got into the bathroom. I've heard boric acid is not safe for cats..."

i’ve just been researching boric acid’s safety for dogs and cats and have read several times that it’s not safe for use around smaller animals, like cats.
i’m sure it’s preferable to the toxic chemicals most use, though.
i’m going to try apple cider vinegar as a rinse since i just read that fleas hate it, otherwise frequent vacuuming takes care of it plus washing of pets’ bedding. our cats are indoor – they live a lot longer that way and stay flea-free and more – cats who live outdoors on average each kill over 250 songbirds every year. when i understood that i determined to keep our cats inside. they’re healthier and happier and we just had a happy twenty-fourth birthday for our eldest cat!
good luck!
