Sheryl,

Sorry for the delayed reply. Roaches are attracted to tree bark, leaves, and any other places where they can hide. Crushed rock mulches would not be attractive to them but they would just find other areas to hide and and still be around. I think the key is to control them with various means including bait stations container growth regulator type insecticides.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
