Home Remedies For Roaches

There is no doubt that if you are reading this article, you must have a problem with roaches in your home. Well our team did an extensive research on the best home remedies for roaches and we listed them here. Read them now to know the ways to get rid of roaches!

Boric Acid Powder

The best way to get rid of roaches is to use boric acid. You can sprinkle it around where you’ve seen them, but we recommend getting it in gel form so that you can put it into crevices where the roaches enter your home (like behind the stove). The roaches will eat it and carry it back to their nests, which will kill more of them. Make sure to wear gloves and a mask when handling boric acid—it is toxic if inhaled or ingested.

A Solution of Detergent and Water

Mix equal parts of detergent soap and water in a spray bottle, then spray the mixture on any roach you see. The soap will stick to their bodies and suffocate them.

Bay Leaves

You can also use bay leaves: Put some bay leaves near areas where you’ve seen roaches—you’ll see them steer clear!

Baking soda and sugar

Mix baking soda with sugar in a bowl and leave it out in your kitchen or wherever else you’ve seen roaches hanging out (just be sure to keep it away from kids or pets). The sugar attracts the roaches, which eat the mixture and die because roaches can’t digest baking soda.

Still seeing them?

If you have tried everything we said above and nothing seems to work or there are still roaches hanging around maybe it is time to ask for help or consult to a pest control expert.

They will be able to tell you what your options are and how they can help you get rid of those pesky pests. If you want to get rid of them yourself, then it’s important that you know where they hide so that you can get rid of them effectively.
