I don't have a cockroach problem in my apartment exactly, but there are cockroaches outside and I want to keep them far enough away from the door that they don't periodically follow me inside. Difficultly level: Please don't kill my cat in the process. [more inside]

I believe that attractant-type insect traps like bug zappers, fly bags, CO2 traps et cetera work best if you put them in the vicinity but not too close - 15-20 feet. You want them to go "oooh, hey, what's that over there? Hey, everybody, this thing is over here!"
My husband would wear a bug zapper around his neck like Flava Flav if that were feasible, on the principle that he wants all the bugs that come near him to go there instead. [more inside]

Can anyone recommend a good pest control company in Tampa, FL? The roaches in my kitchen must DIE DIE DIE. I'm out of town for three days and walk into my kitchen to find four of the not-so-little bastards crawling around. I can't use my kitchen until they are gone.
