Cockroaches are one of the most annoying creatures that infiltrate homes. Because it can spread bacteria in your home and may bring diseases to your family. They are both unsightly and scary, making the house feel unclean, so they are very unpopular.
If you are disturbed by cockroaches, although you can hire a pest control company to deal with them, before paying for professional pest control services, you can try a simple DIY cockroach trap because their chemicals may harm your home environment.
Homemade cockroach traps are not only cheap, but can also permanently eliminate cockroaches without the use of toxic and expensive insecticides. Eliminating cockroaches at home may take a long time, and traps accelerate this process and allow you to check the progress by observing the number of dead cockroaches.
Firstly, identify areas where cockroaches frequently appear and seek evidence of their presence, such as feces or eggshells. Once you have identified these locations, you can start preparing your homemade cockroach traps to lure cockroaches with sugar and flour.
Then mix sugar or flour with boric acid, which is attractive to pests and can kill them when ingested. Place this mixture on a shallow or paper plate and place it in an area where cockroach hotspots are active.
Finally, pay close attention to the traps and promptly supplement the bait mixture to continue attracting and killing cockroaches. This simple process can significantly reduce and ultimately eliminate the number of cockroaches in your home.
