There is nothing more disgusting than seeing a cockroach in your house. However, this problem cannot be solved on its own. Cockroaches come to your house without an invitation and can stay for a longer period.
You can find many products in the store that promise you’ll get rid of these bugs fast, but most of them have negative results. Some of these products include dangerous chemicals and can have very strong smell.
Luckily, there are much more helpful and safe ways to eliminate these insects. Here is one you can use:
Take one egg yolk and add 50 grams of powdered boric acid to it. Mix the ingredients well until you get a thick mixture. Make small balls using the mixture. An hour later, the balls should become dry. Then, place them in every corner of your house and the places where you see cockroaches.
The balls must be put in places where cockroaches can see them. Cockroaches won’t know what the balls are made of and would want to see what’s inside. When their mustaches get in touch with the ball, they will be finished and won’t be able to send signals to the others that something is wrong because they will be totally neutralized from the boric acid.
At first, the cockroaches will start moving the balls without problems. But, after less than 30 days, you will notice dead bugs in your house. Your cockroaches will avoid your place and you will have no problems with them anymore.
Repeat the procedure again when needed if female cockroaches hatched a new generation of cockroaches.
These boric acid balls are not dangerous for you or your pets, so don’t be afraid to use them in your home or your office.
Boric acid is not a toxic material and is regularly used for disinfection. If you don’t have boric acid powder, you can use a solution of boric acid (3%) instead. You can buy it from any pharmacy and it is cheap as well.
You will get the same effect by mixing one egg yolk and 100 ml of boric acid and some flour.
