Do we have a forum for chemical sensitivities on ProHealth? I'd like to get some ideas on products that are safe to use as indoor insecticides. Some DIY ideas would be good too. My MCS is getting worse and I need to find safe alternatives for household products.

Raid ant traps work like magic.

For roaches, sprinkle a thin line of boric acid powder along the edges of counters, cupboards, walls, under stove and fridge, wherever they're at, usually kitchen.

Here's a link about how-to boric acid for roaches. (Not safe around children or pets, though).

I was reading about Borax but still am not sure if it's safe for someone with chemical sensitivity. I know it's not toxic to humans but a lot of non-toxin products still make me very ill. Especially if they trigger asthma. Have you ever used this? I'd like to try it but am still a little afraid to. Right now, we are using a mixture of sugar and baking soda. It's supposed to kill them (eventually). We located the place that we think they came in, a space around the electrical wires under a kitchen cabinet. We taped it last night. I hope it's going to do the trick!

Hi, GB. No, we don't have a board for chemical sensitivities.

If you try the Boric Acid, don't use Borax, it has other ingredients in it such as fragrance. Use just the plain boric acid.

Forty years ago me and first hub lived in an apartment that had roaches. I was about 8 months pregnant with our son. We put a thick line of pure boric acid powder along the edges of the kitchen counters and baseboards, etc. It didn't work fast enough, didn't work instantly like we thought it would, so one night he went on a tear and sprayed the kitchen like crazy with Raid roach spray and the whole apartment was thick with the fumes. I begged him to stop but he wouldn't, he was on a mission, on a roll. My lips got numb. I to this day think the Raid fumes hurt my son.

Then, after that, we happened to move, a better place became available, so I don't know if anything got rid of the roaches, but I don't remember them being gone.

Any luck yet?

The Raid ant traps work instantly.

Did taping off the opening stop the ants, or did they find a new way in?

Good luck!

P.S. I'm worried sick about Rock. Wish he or Gordon could check in with us. Something's not right. Praying for Rock and Gordon.
