How to get rid of Cockroaches Naturally and Forever ?

Among the invasive beasts that can be found in a house, cockroaches are the most disturbing insects. As soon as one of them points the tip of his nose, it clearly means panic! And for good reason, these ugly beasts breed at full speed. So, How to eradicate cockroaches without polluting your interior?

Here’s how.

It must be known: cockroaches are nocturnal and gregarious insects, that means they live in colony. So, if you find one in your house, it’s a safe bet that he is not alone. We must act quickly.

 

Getting rid of cockroaches naturally.

As for food moths, the first reflex is to thoroughly clean your kitchen with white vinegar, plus tea tree or lemon essential oil: cupboards, shelves, refrigerator, worktops, floors, tiles (possibly the walls) and then household appliances that could contain traces of grease.



Do not forget the back of the refrigerator: the cup that collects condensation water just above the engine is a boon for cockroaches. The water is hot and more or less stagnant, it is dark and nobody disturbs them. On some models of refrigerators, this cup is not apparent, but it is still necessary to treat.

Cockroaches love hot and humid places. They are also attracted by water and food of all kinds.

 

Think of your bathroom as well!

Be sure to discard all leftover food items and contaminated foods by placing them in closed garbage bags. The ideal is to put these bins in the freezer to permanently eradicate cockroaches and their eggs.

Namely, cockroaches are fond of pet food and onions.

Tip: For more efficiency, use a vapor cleaner with white vinegar and a few drops of essential oil.

After cleansing / disinfecting all the corners, clean your vacuum cleaner and thoroughly aspirate sensitive rooms (bathroom and kitchen) to get rid of any cockroach eggs and throw the vacuum cleaner bag in a well-closed trash bin

 

Making cockroach traps.

Next step: place traps or if don’t have then make them. Dispose of empty petroleum jelly and leftover food at the bottom of empty cans (tuna box, for example). Once the cockroaches are attracted by the food, they will remain stuck in the box.

Another cockroach trap: the land of Diatom. It is a totally natural insecticide. In a container, put a 2 cm bottom of Diatomaceous earth and add the food to the center, for example a piece of meat or cheese, coffee grounds or sugar. And here comes a deadly cockroach trap.

Finally: (as also for ants) bicarbonate of soda is effective, place it in strategic places (because it is preventive and curative). Cockroaches that eat it will dehydrate and die.

 

Prevent invasion of cockroaches.

Once you have eradicated the colony of cockroaches, you must do everything possible to prevent these undesirable people from inviting back to your home.

If you have pets and they leave their food in “self-service” tins, place them in a basin with a little soapy water to repel cockroaches.

Your accommodation tends to be humid? Invest in moisture absorbers, otherwise your worst enemies will come back!

Think of natural repellents such as lemon eucalyptus essential oil and lavender. Pour a few drops on paper or cotton and place them strategically, where it is hot and humid (under the sink, in the bathroom, near the fridge).

In winter, regularly ventilating your home because cockroaches cannot stand the cold.

 

For the rest, these are standard rules for other insects also: Regular cleaning of the worktop, no leftover food or stagnant water, storage of food in tightly sealed containers, Bags closed.

Last but not the Least, if you have a cat at home, then rejoice! It would be very effective in scaring cockroaches.
