Clean roaches are great feeder bugs. I say let the flying rats out to hunt. But one cannot be sure that roaming bugs are clean. We have poisons all over our homes and even in the construction.

Keep their pan dry. Dump it often.

They have these little roach baits in the form of plastic pucks. The roaches feed through the tiny holes then die soon after. You can place them all over the house where you dont let gliders roam. I put them in my garage only.

You should keep a map where they are in case you lose a glider, you can first pull up any poisons you have around.

You can spray the outside of the house with a residual. I've had luck with those from the self-chem stores using a pump pressure sprayer.

You can dust diatomaceous earth around the wallboards all year round. I have had great success using this to even clear up a mite infestation in my mealworms. Not only does it kill small crawlies, it is also a desiccant which can come in handy in certain circumstances.

DO NOT use ultrasonic plug-in pest repellers anywhere in the house and always consider carefully the things you do choose to use.

i had fleas not to long ago and they hadnt got to my suggies and i didnt want them to so i took them and my cat to my moms and locked the cat in the bathroom and bathed him lol and then i set off bombs in my house that took care of all dif. types of bugs but i covered the suggie cage completely so that none of the "stuff" could get in there and i taped around the blankets i put on it to make sure there would be no residue.....it helped....just an idea oh and we stayed out of the house for 1 1/2 hours after i ventilated just to make sure it wouldnt make them sick

I may be wrong but I think those plug in pest repellent things emit a high pitch frequency the bugs / rodents wont like to drive them off. I'm betting suggies wouldn't like it either.
