Perfect Trick of Cockroach Control by Natural Means

Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
Cockroaches in contrast to their size are our greatest enemies. They are difficult to do away with. You might even end up wasting your time and effort in doing the entire process of extermination. Different breeds are quiet similar and usually vary on just one or two minor points.

You might say that you have done enough to keep these critters out of your abode but still it continues to ruin your household. You have done all efforts to control cockroach infestation and even laid much of your time pursuing them but all efforts are wasted. After spraying your entire home with insecticides and doing all the possible measures you think would work, cockroach infestation still comes back and never come to an end.

Prevention First Try

So how can you get those roaches out of your home? By _keeping_ them out, of course! Remember, most roaches don't actually live in your home; they just stop by for the occasional snack. Here's what you can do to keep them out:

First, don't cater to their hunger. The cleaner your home is, the less food there is for them to eat. Besides the obvious stuff, like unwashed dishes and open cereal boxes, roaches will also eat hair dander, skin particles, and other forms of organic waste. If you don't want to give them a free meal, mop your floors regularly. This is especially important in your kitchen. If you show them that your home isn't a cockroach buffet, they'll quickly learn to eat elsewhere.

Secondly, obstruct their entrance. Screen your windows. Caulk your doors. Make your home an impenetrable human fortress. If roaches can't get in, they'll have to stay out. Finally, don't encourage roaches to live next to your home. Rake leaves away from your walls. You should clean your gutters and move (or destroy) anything that looks like a moist cockroach habitat. If they live twenty feet from home, they'll probably forgo the backyard trek and forage for food locally.

Habitat Checking and Poison

Finally, since roaches spend so much time in our homes, let's take a peek into theirs. The most popular habitat is, believe it or not, outside. Roaches love damp, shady places, and the outdoors abounds with both moisture and shade. You can usually find them under piles of leaves or in rotting trees. Even if they spend most of their time outside, though, hunger can often drive them into your home. A few, finding it cozy (if dangerous) will even stick around in this land of the giants. Their favorite indoor habitats are in crawlspaces and around water heaters and pipes. Try to check all this areas and best effort not to give these pest their most comfortable place. Knowing where and how to apply your poisons also influences your results. For instance, thin layers of boric acid powder are more effective than thicker ones. After putting on your protective eyewear, breathing mask and gloves, you want to go back to those cracks and crevices we've been talking about. Apply your pesticides in those spaces that you weren't able to seal off with the caulk, taking care to not damage any appliances.

Tricky End

A few roaches will get stuck in your house, however. Others might still find a way to sneak in. How do you get rid of them? Luckily, since the most staying outside these days, you can catch the stragglers on a one by one basis.

Try out this unique trap set up:

First, soak some bread in beer. (American Roaches are born inebriants and love all things alcoholic. If you're not trying to catch American Roaches, then use a daub of peanut butter, instead.) Next, put it in a glass jar and then coat the inner lip of the jar with some cooking oil.

The roach will be drawn to the food, climb into the jar, and after engorging itself, won't be able to escape. It will constantly slip on the oil, falling back into the jar. Tricky trap, huh? And simple: Just toss the roach outside, and you're problem is gone. Repeat until roaches stop appearing in the jar. At that point, your house is finally roach free.
