Are you one of those unfortunate home-owners whose dreams are haunted by disgusting cockroaches crawling all over the house? Roaches are the creepiest bugs and sometimes the hardest to get rid of. They usually thrive at moist and damp places where sunlight does not reach quite often. They can damage stuff and spread some harmful diseases. If you are suffering from an acute roach problem, it is high time that you get rid of them completely.
Here are a few mixtures that can vanish the cockroaches from your home:
Flour + Boric Acid + Cocoa:- Mix one part of cocoa powder, two parts of flour and one part of boric acid and dust it in the places where roaches are found most such as the area under the sink, the cracks of the cupboards and in the wash-room. But you should also be aware as this mixture is toxic and can be harmful for kids and pets. Also make sure you cover your mouth while dealing with boric acid.
Pesticides:- Use good quality pesticides to get rid of roaches from your home permanently. The home remedies are not very effective because the articles used at home do not usually have such strong quality of dealing with bugs and pests. A professional grade pesticide would help you to get rid of roaches.
Poisoned Roaches Bait:- Cockroach baits are also available in the market. These are the gel like substances that are applied to or mixed with the attractive looking bait. It works as a slow poison and kills the roaches that consume it. Keep out of reach of the children.
Soap + Water:- A light mixture of bathing soap and water is the simplest way to get rid of roaches, but this might not be a permanent remedy. The science behind this is that the cockroaches breathe through their skin. When a soapy mixture is sprayed over their body, it blocks the pores and suffocates them to death. However, even if a few roaches are left, they will reproduce very quickly and create an empire again.
Flour + Sugar + Boric Acid:- This is using roach food to get rid of them. Make a mixture of flour, sugar bits and boric acid. The sugar is the bait, flour makes them stick to it and boric acid kills them.
Liquid Concentrate:- It is a poisonous liquid which when concentrated is highly dangerous. It is diluted with water and used to mop the floor to keep the roaches away. This is an easy and effective way as it protects your home from re-infestation.
