There’s no question that cockroaches are some of the most disgusting pests we have here in Raleigh. They come into our homes looking for food and water, spreading disease as they go. Food poisoning, dysentery, diarrhea… They all can be caused by roaches.
When you start seeing them inside your Raleigh home, do something about it immediately. If these roaches are left untreated, the problem can quickly escalate.
Here are a couple effective all-natural roach control remedies you can try at home:
- 1 cup borax
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon water
- Fresh, chopped onion or garlic to sent
Yields 50 Roach Balls
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ingredients to form a doughy paste. Roll the dough into little balls. Place three balls into a sandwich bag, and leave the open bag where you are seeing cockroaches. Not only will the roaches eat the pesticide balls, they will carry chunks of them back to their friends. They will die out of sight. This is very effective, as the other roaches in the area will chow down on the dead cockroaches; thus ingesting the all natural poison. Keep repeating this process until you no longer see roaches.
Natural Roach Pesticide
- 32 ounce bag of powdered sugar
- 8 ounces borax
- Tablespoon of cocoa powder
- 1 ounce of pharmacy sodium fluoride
Mix all four ingredients in a large bucket or mixing bowl. Stir. Sprinkle the natural roach pesticide in the areas of your kitchen and home you are seeing the cockroaches. Repeat as necessary. Since this mixture is sweet tasting, please keep it out of the reach of children and pets.
