Maybe that's because it isn't called Miracle Roach Chalk. A product designed for ants may legitimately be ineffective on roaches. To get back to the "homicidal" bit -- is any other chemical pesticide any safer around toddlers? Numerous household products can kill toddlers, but we do not say it is homicidal to use them for their intended purposes.
