HUGS!!!! Thank you thank you thank you!  I was praying that the recipe that I
had heard about wasn't a farce.  I was so reluctant to call the exterminator,
but felt I had no choice - they literally are EVERYWHERE!!!  I had no idea that
roaches started out so small - I thought they were some sort of beetle that had
snuck in for the summer - now I fear for my childs safety with the things that
they can carry.  The bombing from an exterminator is not only expensive - but
can hurt both my child and my pets.  You have answered this new mothers
prayers! Thank you.
