Cockroaches are insects of the largest phylum of kingdom animalia. There are more than 4000 species of cockroaches. Due to a strong body configuration it’s not easy to kill cockroaches as they have a thin layer. Cockroaches are one of the largest and most disgusting pests. Also, they can cause a lot of vulnerable diseases such as asthma triggers. Undoubtedly, they are unhygienic scavengers in human settlements. So, here are some ways by which you can get rid of cockroaches.
Clean home – Dirt and filth attract cockroaches because they are always the lookout for new sources of food. So, keeping home and kitchen clean is the basic remedy to keep cockroaches away. But, make sure to wash dishes, remove grease from stove top, seal food in containers and mop on a regular basis.
Seal cracks and door sweeps – Cockroaches get entry into the house by crawling through the spaces left under the doors and windows. They make their habitat under the cracks on the walls or some tiny holes. So, to stop them from entering the house you should seal all cracks and holes in your house. Also, you should install door seeps under the doors and windows. This will not allow cockroaches enter through the spaces under the doors and windows.
Don’t feed cockroaches – Cockroaches get their food from your pet food or from the dishes which you leave in your living area? Remove the food right away after eating it and properly dispense the dishes.
Newspapers and boxes – Cockroaches love to make their home in cardboard boxes and newspapers. If these are lying in your house, they are inviting cockroaches in the vicinity into your home. So, clear all the newspapers and cardboard boxes from your house. You may also recycle these products.
Chemical baits – A lot of chemical baits are available in the market. They disguise insecticide as food sources. When cockroaches eat those baits they go to their living place where they die. Also, infection of the baits is spread into the entire cockroach habitat. These baits don’t affect humans.
Boric acid – If you are keen on DIY approach, boric acid is one of the best home remedies for preventing cockroaches. Basically, it acts as a cockroach repellent. You just need to mix boric acid, flour, and sugar in equal concentrations hence, making a dough. Place those dough balls where there are a large number of cockroaches. When the cockroaches will consume them, they’ll either die or leave that place. But, you need to take all preventions while making the dough and rinse hands-off after making it.
