In the last few years the number of cockroaches, deemed to be of the so called Asian variety has increased astronomically. If I go out at night with a flashlight I can see many. I don't use a pesticide service. I have a large amount of mulch and river rock borders where they hide during the day. I also noticed that recently there are a lot fewer or even none of the common lizards that might eat the roaches. Since they are out at night I doubt birds will control them.  
Are there any natural ways to limit them with either plants or predators?

If I missed it, oops!, but how does one get on the "Interest List" for the next Master Gardener session and for the Summer 2023 advertisement/email?
