Pests!

Argh. I keep finding roaches >o Ugh, I put this off because I hate hate to kill something because it's an annoyance to me, but it's either me or them, and I don't even put another humans life above mine, so they gots to go.
But...
My rats ;.;
I don't want anything harming mah babies..And no one can take them in for a few days (believe me, I've been looking for new possible homes for them in case of emergency..)
I fear spray poison because it can drift through the air and get my mice and rats,
and I fear bait traps because my rats will think it's a special candy just for them, even if I DO keep them in their cage, they're crafty and escape when I change the water bottle >.> I suppose if I put them in their traveling cage first, but it's still a risk.

I don't think there's anything harmful enough to kill roaches but not harmful for other animals (humans included)
Also, what if one of the boys NOWs thinks its the time to hunt roaches and eats a poisoned one? x.x (they can always crawl INTO the cage)

JEEBUS o_o They're coming from the printer!!! Oh I'm so getting poison and bombing it. Keeping my rats away from the printer will be easy enough, if not, it goes outside and gets hit with everything.

I have roaches at home to as pests, but I'm more concerned with the ants that have decided to come and take over everything so I'm killing ants and if I see a cockroach I kill it too. Anyone know how I could get rid of the ants, as they annoy my mice?

i know this is kinda an older post, but maybe you could put the ratties in travel cages in the car or something while you bomb the house? my friend had roaches in a house they rented, the only way to truely get rid of them is to bomb the whole house at once.. best of luck!
