Nice clickbait.

Things that cannot be avoided in a restaurant are mice and roaches. The constant in and out of customers, having doors open, food constantly around will attract unwanted critters. If residents want to live in fear of dining out then they should cook their own damn food....1 it will save them money, 2 it wont end up tasting like it was cooked without seasoning.

Despite living on a high floor away from the street level, far apartment away from the trash chute, wiping down all kitchen surfaces with Clorox wipes after cooking and remove all trash out of the apartment nightly I have seen 1 baby roach since the year began who happily met the end of a shoe. Roaches will get in, its unavoidable so I can imagine the nightmares restaurants go through being on the ground floor, scrap food pieces all around, and dumpsters out back.


With that being said how is it that the my ghetto trashy south Bronx neighborhood have a lower B/C rating than nose in the air upper class Riverdale?

I have never seen a roach in my apartment and I don't use bleach unless something is stained, ever. You don't need bleach and its toxic to you.

I put tiny amounts of roach GEL BAIT into the plastic caps from 1/2& 1/2 containers and put them into corners in kitchen and on kitchen shelves, under fridge and stove, and same in bathroom. Every month or so I mist them all (or at least the ones I can find) with a tiny spray bottle. Not a single roach in 2019. One adult female in 2018 that I missed as she ran across my cluttered desktop, but I assume she ate a "snack" from one of the traps and bid this life adieu.


What in Heavens name would one expect BLEACH to do?

All it takes is 1 nasty neighbor to spray roach spray or get the exterminator and the roaches will scatter to nearby places until its safe to return. Perfect place is the pipes that enter through the wall in the kitchen under the sink, bathroom and the pipes for the heating radiators. I have friends who constantly boast they don't have roaches but they will never say why or how. Visit their place and instantly notice they have things higher on the food chain that keep the roaches in check like ants, spiders or house centipedes lol.

Why would someone use bleach against roaches?

I use bleach when doing whites in the laundry but that's about it, don't know what it have to do with roaches...

Boric acid works wonders. It was our best friend in my NYCHA years. Those and glue traps. Put a glue trap down and come back a week later and start wondering what the hell all the things on it was. Cant say I miss those years

Boric acid ,too. Why miss a trick? A fine puff of BA under fridge and stove cannot hurt. (Keep it fine, they learn to avoid clumps.

The Bronx has very few restaurants. The fast food joints are dominant
