Alternative Items Believed to Repel Cockroaches

Home Improvement,Health,Environment
No one wants to fumigate their home with roach poison, so finding alternative ways to remove roaches from your home is the most ideal solution to the problem. However, roaches are also extremely difficult to get rid of.

The idea of waking up with a large bug near you while you sleep or finding your food half eaten by insects along with the subsequent droppings is more than some people can bear. So knowing how to get rid of roaches or knowing of a good roach repellent is nice.

Unfortunately, because roaches live in such high numbers, it is very difficult to get rid of them with any homemade methods. You can try to take away their access to food, use bright lights in the dark places that they hide, and try ultrasonic devices to irritate them into leaving your home.They live inside your walls and can number in the thousands, so no matter how many you are able to kill by hand, there are always more that are breeding in areas of your home and apartment that you cannot see.

Other than that, it is very hard to remove roaches once they have started breeding in your house. The easiest way to keep the roaches out is to not allow them to enter your home in the first place, by using a roach repellent that will dissuade them from moving in.

Roach Repellents

There are several ways you can repel roaches without having to use any toxins. Some of these methods are even homemade, including:

Mint Oil

Mint oils can be found in several different types of store bought roach repellent, and when placed around your home, many roaches attempt to avoid it.

Hot pepper sprays

Spraying hot pepper or leaving chili pepper mixtures around your home is another way to keep roaches from choosing to move in. Bugs and animals are both opposed to the scent and taste.


Cedar wood is a safe and organic way to repel all types of bugs from your home. Cedar shards alone in some of the more hidden areas of your home is enough to keep roaches from entering your home.

All of those roach repellent methods are effective at keeping cockroaches away, and they are all low cost and completely safe. You can also try using boric acid (available at the pharmacy). If you boil it until it dissolves, place it is a spray bottle and coat all of your wooden cabinets, roaches will stay away. Any bugs that choose to enter areas where the boric acid was sprayed will dehydrate.

Boric Acid

Get several old plastic lids or even just cut squares of aluminum foil and place a cracker on each. Pour enough water on it to make it soggy. Then sprinkle boric acid on the cracker. Place these crackers inside cabinets, in corners, and anyplace that you have seen roaches. The roaches will come and eat the cracker, ingesting the boric acid, but they will also get it on their feet and feelers. They will then carry it back to the nest where it will kill those roaches too. No smell, no mess, no costly fees, and no roaches!

The Best Form of Removal is Prevention

Cockroaches are extremely hard to remove once they have decided to move in your home. By using roach repellent methods so that you never have a roach problem in the first place, you never have to use one of the poisonous roach removal methods that are far more costly and involve a great deal of inconvenience for both you and your family.
