Almost every zoo building in which Iíve worked was home to roach (2-3 species) and House Cricket populations. In most, pesticide use was not an option. An older animal keeper whom I befriended let me in on his favorite insect pest control technique Ė the molasses trap. He was content to let management wonder how he did such a good job so, out of respect for him, I did not share the secret until he retired. Then, for a time, molasses traps became standard in several zoo buildings. Molasses is also useful in outdoor traps, where it never fails to turn up a variety of interesting species. Iíll expand on that below as well. Read article here: Pet-Safe Cricket and Roach Control for Reptile and Amphibian Owners | That Reptile Blog
