First things first, girls are always more concerned about cleanliness against boys. Whether it’s their room, clothes or even the whole house wherever they see even a spot of dirt they run at it and clean it! So, now when it comes to cockroaches, of course there is no other feeling except for hatred towards them because they are symbol of unsanitary and uncleanliness mostly that is the reason why girls hate cockroaches!
From an evolutionary point of view, these little monsters spread disease and harm food storage. And that’s another reason why girls hate them.
But this isn’t why you all came here? You came here to know ways of GETTING RID OF THEM! So, here are top 9 ways to get those sneaky little insects OUT OF YOUR HOME!
The things required here are most probably in your home already or you can buy them for even less than a penny. Yes, you don’t need to buy those expensive insect killer sprays. Trust us!
NOW LETS BEGIN!!
- Bay Leaves
These bay leaves are ROACH SAVIORS! No doubt. You just need to put them where there is a chance of cockroaches’ e.g. near sinks, shelf corners or tuck under cushions or beds and believe me. You won’t ever see those monsters again. This doesn’t kill them but keeps them 1000 miles away you.
- Ammonia Solution
Cockroaches are also hiding in sinks and drain pipes. Take ammonia and add it to a bucket of water. Pour it down the sinks or other pipes and will kill all the cockroaches hiding there. Ammonia’s punsgent smell kills them.
Not only does it clean your clothes in the washer, it also “cleans” your house of nasty pests like cockroaches and ants. Lightly dust areas where you see cockroaches. When they walk over these lightly dusted areas, the powder will stick on to their legs and body. They will eventually get to cleaning themselves by licking and eating the borax stuck to them. Once ingested, it kills them.
Yeah the same thing you use to wash your mouth every day also helps in getting rid of roaches. Make a solution of Listerine with water and then spray it on the areas and you shall have no roaches.
- Petroleum Jelly Trap
Well, if all the above remedies were boring, this would definitely cheer you up. Make a trap! Get a jar and apply petroleum jelly on the inner rim and add some fruit inside. The fruit will attract the cockroaches and they’ll fall for it. But once they’re inside they can never get out because of the petroleum jelly. Voila!
- Pepper, Garlic and Onion Solution
Yes, time to dice! Take a pepper or spoon of pepper powder, one clove garlic and onion paste. Mix them all well in one liter water. Spray it over the areas. You can even mop the floor with the solution and say goodbye to cockroaches for good.
- Boric Acid and Sugar
These are two dynamic duos which you already have in homes. Just grab them take two parts boric and one part sugar. Mix them well. Sprinkle it around the sinks, stove, and dishwasher and where ever there is a chance of cockroaches. The sugar will act as a lover and attract the roaches while borax will act as devil and kill them.
Bleach is another item that can be found easily in homes. It is one of the best disinfectants that you can use to kill cockroaches. Just take two parts of bleach and one part of water and pour it down the sinks and toilets. It will drain those cockroaches that are in your pipes, sewers and leave them clean. Open the windows while doing this process.
- Moth balls
Moth balls are excellent for warding off all kinds of pests including roaches. Place a few in your cupboard and near specific areas prone to infestation or likely to be the nesting area for roaches. However, they can be harmful to humans and children. So be careful, while using them.
- Baking Soda and Sugar
Lastly, we have baking soda and sugar. Mix these both well in equal quantities. Sugar attracts and baking soda kills. SIMPLE AS THAT!
That’s it for today people. I hope from all the above at least one of it works for you. Just kidding! Everything will work.
