Requests for natural help dealing with roach infestations come up so often that I thought I’d dedicate a minute to the pests that everybody loves to hate.
Rather than getting your home toxed out with pest spray, there is a very easy, cheap method to kill off the roaches that come into your home seeking warmth, water & food.
Mix equal parts white sugar and baking soda, put some of the mixture in little saucers (or clean jar lids), then place the saucers in places where you have seen the roaches, out of reach of pets. Baking soda is supposedly non-toxic for pets, but you’ll want to avoid having them eat it anyway, otherwise, the roaches won’t be able to!
The sugar attracts the roaches, but the baking soda is incompatible with their digestive systems. The roaches who eat the sugar & baking soda mixture will die, and the roaches who eat those roaches (nasty critters) will also die.
Every time I’ve used this trick, the roaches are gone within a few days. I have tried this method several times in different homes and so far it has worked every time.
See? Wasn’t that easy? Now go do something fun since you have saved yourself from pesticide poisoning!
