    Get one of those hamster tube thingys, install it in the wall on a weekend, and re-route them upstairs (but put in a one way door drop at the far end, like a crab trap, so they don't come back).

    You can buy stronger stuff than the exterminators use from the hardware stores anyway. They can only use certain kinds of poisons where people are gonna habitat and possibly eat. Buy a couple of cans of Black Flag and spray all along the corners of the office and where the floor and walls meet. Just use up the two cans. Spray exclusively around the elevator area. If you've been in the apartment business, you know that the stuff an exterminator uses isn't gonna be that strong.

    Tude, you need to deal with this in a productive way. Trap a bunch of roaches humanely, take them to the area where the person playing politics resides, and release them. Starving is not humane, so make sure they have something to eat...

    I've chucked roach traps behind and underneath refrigerators and inaccessible places at jobs where they had infestations, and those help a lot.

    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    I don't see how glue traps are any more "humane" than spraying. I'm with the person who suggested the spray bombs you buy and set yourself.

    roaches are harmless.
    You should go to Japan or south America. The roaches there are massive, and they fly. Not only that, centipedes there are 30cm long, and those things bite!

    If it's any consolidation, mice and rats eat roaches. Release a group of rats, they'll get rid of the roach problem
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    My wife and I actually have a colony of roaches in a terrarium in our laundry closet.

    We breed them to feed the 11 tarantulas.

    They're B. dubia (Guyana Orange Spotted) roaches, they can't climb slick surfaces, and need temps above 80 in order to breed, so if they get out, they'll pretty much die.

    Roachie update. Boss is calmed down, she said that we'll deal with it and according to one person in there - it was rare to see them.

    hehe, enter another person from that office area in my office with boss. And he was describing them, yes they did come in from the kitchenette area, yes they WERE infrequent, but now they're being seen a lot more - and are so bold that they're now appearing out in the hallway. Told my boss not to step on them (eggs), but rather he wraps a paper towel around them and disposes.

    hehe, boss's face turned white. Also added that yes my ex-husband and my brother (he works on a lot of city equipment that's located in the basements of the buildings in the city) did indeed bring them home, which is why they shook their clothes out - outside.

    Makes me wish the house I plan to get would have a mud room, with decontamination showers.

    No wonder you never see D-Con Tiger B Gon or Black Flag Dolphin Spray on the pesticide aisle at the super market.
