How to get rid of cockroaches

Cockroaches are not only unattractive creatures, but their presence also poses a risk as they carry pathogens for several dangerous infectious diseases. These diseases range from salmonellosis and dysentery to life-threatening meningitis.

When cockroaches move through sewer pipes, they can bring pathogens into the house, leading to various health issues, including allergies and dermatitis. If you notice cockroaches in your home, it's essential to take action promptly. OBOZREVATEL provides a remedy that has been traditionally used by our grandmothers, which can effectively control and prevent cockroach infestations.

Our grandmothers used to use an effective and proven pest control product. By the way, it can also be used as a preventive measure, for example, if your neighbors have already complained about the appearance of cockroaches, but they have not yet reached your apartment.

The necessary ingredients:

  • ammonia;
  • water.

It's very simple: pour 2 liters of water and 2 tablespoons of ammonia into a container. This solution is recommended for wet cleaning in the house at least twice a week. Particular attention should be paid to the baseboard and ventilation. Cockroaches do not tolerate the smell of ammonia, so they will not crawl into your home.

The next method is turpentine. It is also applied to the baseboard and ventilation. Wet cleaning should be done with gloves and protective equipment.

You can also try bay leaves - cockroaches also do not like its smell. Read more about this life hack in the article.

It's worth noting that you shouldn't limit yourself to folk methods. If your home suffers from periodic pest attacks, contact a professional pest control service.
