Cockroaches – we all hate them, right? And we can easily say that it’s a type of problem that can’t be fixed by itself – even if we wait for a year.They always come uninvited, and they are always here to stay for a while. This means that every house owner wants to get rid of these annoying insects, in the safest and most effective way – available. We all know that there are many different products on the market shelves, but the real truth is that many of these products have some negative effects, such as: cockroaches are gone just for a while, there is unpleasant odor in the house, and of course – these chemical products can be really dangerous for our health and the health of our kids.
But, you shouldn’t be worried, because there’s always a way. In this article we are going to show you how to make the most effective and the safest homemade remedy against these annoying insects. You will need the following ingredients – one raw egg yolk, pour in it 50 g (1.7 oz.) of powdered boric acid. Make sure you mix the ingredients well, until you get a nice and thick mixture. Then, you need to make small balls of this mixture and leave them for 1 hour, until they are completely dry. As we said, wait 1 hour and then you need to place them all over the house in visible places and corners. Make sure that the bathroom and the kitchen floor are well covered with these balls. They must be placed in places where cockroaches can see them – lower part of closets, shelves, cabinets etc.
This is very useful trick, because the cockroaches won’t notice that these balls are actually a mask to cover the boric acid and they will definitely want to see what’s inside the ball. So, once their mustaches get in touch with the ball – they’ll be “done”. The cockroaches won’t be able to send a signal to the other cockroaches that something is wrong. It’s because they will be completely neutralized from the boric acid. This means that you can expect new cockroaches to touch the ball. What is even better is that neutralized cockroaches will infect other cockroaches if they touch them.
You shouldn’t be worried if you notice in the beginning that the cockroaches are not affected by the balls, because they will start moving the balls without problems. But, after 1 month, you will notice a pile of dead cockroaches. After that, you will never have problems with cockroaches because they’ll avoid your place. Note: if you notice that the female cockroaches hatched a new generation of these bugs after half a year, just perform the procedure again.
And you should always keep in mind that these boric acid balls are harmless not only to humans, but also to their pets. So, feel free to use them in your home even if you have small kids, cats and dogs. Needless to say, you can use them in your office too. You should also know that boric acid is not a toxic material and it is regularly used for disinfection. But, if you can’t buy boric acid powder, you can also use a solution of boric acid (3%). This solution can be found in any pharmacy, and it is not expensive. So, create a mixture of one egg yolk and 100 ml of boric acid and pour some flour. You will be amazed by the results. We really hope you find this article helpful and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. Thank You.
