Roaches are not only unsightly, but they can also pose a risk to your health. Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of roaches and keep them out of your home for good. Here are three grandma’s home-made ways to eliminate roaches:
Boric Acid and Sugar
Boric acid is a highly effective way to kill roaches. Mix boric acid with sugar and water to make a paste. The sugar will attract the roaches, and the boric acid will kill them. Apply the paste in areas where you have seen roaches, such as under the sink or behind appliances. Be sure to keep the paste away from children and pets.
Diatomaceous earth is a natural, non-toxic way to eliminate roaches. Sprinkle diatomaceous earth in areas where roaches frequent, such as around baseboards, under the sink, and behind appliances. The diatomaceous earth will dehydrate the roaches, causing them to die. This method is safe for both humans and pets.
