How to Get Rid of Roaches


What comes to your mind when you think of the most disgusting insect? Undoubtedly, roaches are the most despised and disgusting insects in the world. Their presence not only adds an unhygienic look to your house but it also makes your environment look unhealthy. They have an ability to reproduce quickly which makes it hard to get rid of their population. This guide will help you get rid of them for good.


  • Food: Roaches get attracted to exposed food fast. They do not have any specific food, which they are attracted. What you cando is to keep all your food locked and sealed in airtight containers. Clean up grease and crumbs, they need very little to survive.

  • Water: This is major attraction for roaches. Whether there is water under the sink or from leaking drainage, roaches will get attracted. The smallest puddles of water attract roaches. Whether you have leftover water in your dishes or water that is collected around your sink. Roaches settle for houses, which have easily accessible water.

  • Exposed trash: Similarly, to food, roaches get attracted towards trash fast. They are exposed to leftover food, cardboard, liquids, and darkness, which they love. Always remember to take your trash out to prevent this from happening.

6 Methods that People Say will Kill Roaches

These are all recommendations from online post, we have not tested are tried these methods.  Our recommendation on how to get rid of roaches will be number 6, which we know to work and has been tested in labs and by thousands of customers, and pest control technicians.

  1. Baking Soda and Sugar:

This method is effective as you will be able to notice a decline in their population. Yes, you will need to creep up on these creepy crawlers to see where the majority of them are so this method can be executed well. What you will need to make this mixture is baking soda, sugar and a cup or bowl. Mix equal parts of sugar and baking soda in a bowl. Sprinkle the mixture in the areas that have been infested by roaches. You will need to repeat this step a couple of times to ensure that the mixture is killing all the roaches. The baking soda will mix in with the roach’s stomach acid causing it to die and the sugar is meant to attract the roaches.

  1. Boric Acid:

Boric acid is known to be one of the most effective methods of killing roaches. Fun Fact: This method is the most used, as it is so helpful! It is not safe for consumption therefore make sure you keep it out of reach of children and pets. Leaving the acid out for too long can cause you to become ill. When using this method make sure you put a small dusting as it will be just as effective and make sure the area you are putting it in isn’t wet. Sprinkle the powder in places where you know they will go.

  1. Fabric Softener Spray:

This is an effective method to get rid of roaches and it does not require too much energy. You will need to keep spraying the mixture when you see a roach so you can make sure they are all dead. What you will need for this is a fabric softener, water and a spray bottle. Mix three parts of fabric softener with two parts water. Mix it together well in the spray bottle and shake until incorporated. The solution can become thick so you can add a few drops of water to get a spraying consistency. Every time you see a roach, spray them with this solution. If they are hidden under furniture or dark places, spray around the area so they can be exposed to the solution. This will cause the breathing pore to be blocked ultimately resulting in death.

  1. Bay Leaf- Repellent:

Bay Leaves are a roach repellent because they hate the smell of them. A benefit is that bay leaves are harmful to humans therefore you can have them lying around as long as you want. You will need to crush or grind the bay leaves so they form a powder like consistency. Sprinkle the powder in areas where the roaches are present and where they are nesting.

  1. Lemons Are the Solution

Freshness explodes at the sound of lemons. The refreshing smell of lemons is a popular household cleaner as it takes away grease, stains, and bad odors and is a terrific way of keeping the roaches away! All citrus fruits have properties that repel roaches. There are a couple of ways for this method:

  • Add lemon juice or buy 100% lemon juice and spray it around the house and areas where you cannot physically reach.

  • Grind some lemon peels and place them in the areas where the roaches are present so they can leave.

  • Extreme Level: Mix one part of water with two parts fresh lemon juice in a bucket. The smell of the lemon juice should be strong because if it is not then this will not work. Take a towel or a rag, dip it into the bucket, and start cleaning around your house. Try getting the mixture into the small crevices as well. Two in one benefit, the roaches will leave ad your house will smell amazing!
