Pesticide Alternatives

In general, you can find solutions by searching on IPM or Integrated Pest Management. Search Here. Actually, some forms of IPM include pesticides. So, perhaps a better search would be “Pesticide Alternative”.
You can also find information and/or products at these websites: Stephen Tvedten, Get IPM, Safe Solutions, Safe2Use, Beyond Pesticides, Pesticide Action Network, and Pesticide Free Yard Signs.

Ode to a Roach



Poem with Diatribe
by Dale Stubbart


The Roach
It really is beyond reproach

The End


&l";You&';ve got to be kidding. You broached the roach subject and that&';s all you have to say?&r";

&l";Yep, that&';s it!&r";


&l";Oh come on now!&r";

&l";Well, if you insist.&r";



The Roach has many an alias
I hope you won&';t be jeaylious

Visitor from gutter space
Mr. Underworld himself
Creature from the bleh ew lagoon
The Black (of K)night


&l";Your euphemisms are much to gross!
The roach is nothing more than dross
I feel faint at the mere sight
Of that enormously filthy blight!&r";


Should a roach fall in your sink
He&';ll consider it, his own roller rink
And there he&';ll raise up quite a stink
What&';s this black stuff? &n-; Not ink!

And if he invites his friend Fred
It becomes their hockey arena instead
And here and there a leg is shed
These smears? It&';s not where they&';ve bled

I was going to shut my mouth, but oop(s)
You better get out your microscoop
And clean up all this roach poop
There, was that such a bad bloop(er)?


&l";Your poem&';s going towards the gutter.&r";


And so you sterilize your sink
To rid yourself of roach stink
That evil villain will now say oach
As you gleefully watch him poach


&l";There, does that clean it up a bit?&r";



This ode is almost now complete
So just allow me to repeat
This ode is almost now complete
And &l";Roach Revenge&r";, ain&';t it sweet?


&l";Talk about syrupy endings!&r";
