Cockroaches live for about 6 months and feed on household waste. Thus, you need to prepare yourself and start learning how to get rid of cockroaches so you could have a healthy environment.
They take refuge in hot and humid areas behind the furniture, the refrigerator, around the pipe and the wall slots. There are large moisture hazards, so check any wet source:
– Check the openings around the sewer and close them
– Read the pipes that flow
– Cleans the condensate
– With the putty, it closes all the cracks in the wall and around the wooden planks
It cleans the rooms very well, without forgetting the hidden corners beneath the beds, behind the kitchen table. Use the vacuum cleaner, and the bag in which you collected the cockroaches and eggs put it in a hermetically sealed plastic bag that you throw.
Essential oil of eucalyptus
Pour a few drops of essential oil of eucalyptus onto a newspaper, which you place under the sink, under the refrigerator, and in all places where roaches can hide. The solution is valid at the beginning of an infestation when the population of cockroaches is not too big.
Flour and sugar
Sprinkle, gypsum powder mixed with white flour and powdered sugar on the cockroaches pass. Place a plate of water next to it. The cockroaches will die of intestinal occlusion.
Sugar and sodium bicarbonate
This is an easy way to get rid of cockroaches. You can make a mixture of sodium bicarbonate and sugar by adding the parts in equal parts and then sprinkling it near the infested areas. The cockroaches who feed on this mixture will die because sodium bicarbonate reacts with the acid in their stomach and swells them.
Drop on pieces of cotton wool 6 drops of essential oil of lavender. Place them all over, especially in cabinets, and renew them daily.
Vaporizes white vinegar on walls, under furniture, and wherever beetles can be installed. White vinegar does not kill them, but it drives them away.
Boric acid and onion
Mix 2 liters of boiled water with 450 g of boric acid and 11 g of sugar. Allow to cool, pour the solution into small bottles. Close the bottle with compact cotton plugs. Place the bottles in the refrigerator, under the sink and wherever there are cockroaches.
Make a small medium-sized onion slice, half a cup of flour, a little water or beer, and a drop of sugar plus 3 or 4 teaspoons of boric acid powder. Mix all the ingredients with a spoon and place through the roaches. Be careful that pets do not get this solution because it can harm them.
Another solution is the bay leaf bouquets hanging through the kitchen and the places where the cockroaches appear.
