3 Best Ways To Get Rid Of Roaches


Cockroaches are one of the most common pests that can be found in households. An average cockroach can grow up to 3 inches long, depending on its food intake and environment. Though there are different types of roaches to be aware of, it’s enough to know that these little creatures are attracted to places for different reasons. Some roaches tend to be attracted to water, food, and most importantly garbage. But when they look for a place to live, these creatures tend to look for a combination of availability of food, water supply, and shelter.

Cockroach Elimination Made Simple

You probably know by now that roaches like to live in dark, moist, and smelly places. These pests can multiply quickly once they start nesting to a specific place and this is something to worry about. Cockroaches by nature, carry a lot of different types of bacteria that can lead to illnesses for humans such as skin rashes, allergies, diarrhea, food poisoning, and the like. Moreover, these little things produce a very foul smell which is enough reason to get rid of them. You’re probably wondering now about the best ways to terminate these roaches in your homes. Here’s how:

Use Gel Bait

The use of Gel Bait is one of the most effective ways to kill cockroaches. This is usually packaged in the form of a tube which enables the user to apply it under crevices, underneath surfaces, cracks, and other areas that are more likely known to be attractive for roaches. Gel Bait simply works by attracting cockroaches into its stations to feed or shall we say, poison the roaches.

The effectivity of the poison happens after some time when the cockroach has presumably gone back to its base location; ultimately when the roach dies in its home and the other roaches present eat the dead body of the cockroach which then means that the poison is further passed on to another cockroach.

Boric Powder

Boric Acid powder is a substance that can usually be found in grocery items such as laundry detergents, washing soaps, toothpaste, and the like. It is known to be one of the major ways how to get rid of roaches. Simply combine the Boric Acid powder with water to decrease its toxicity for pets and humans; this doesn’t necessarily mean that the low toxicity will not eliminate the roaches. That being said, even the slightest substance of Boric Acid is already deadly to pests like roaches. Once you’ve completed the mixture, all you have to do is spray on areas where there would be usually roach presence and ultimately pour it on the cockroaches’ nest.
