Cockroaches

Cockroaches are among the most common and bothersome pests you will find in house. They are not only disgusting,but spread bacteria and can cause breathing issues such as asthma.
Make sure your house is clean

The best thing you can do to ensure a roach free home is to make sure you never get them in the first place.

They are attracted to grease, food left out of the counter, piles of dirty dishes in the sink and other forms of mess.

As such, you should always seek to clean your plates and maintain cleanliness in the kitchen.

2) Don’t give them any places to hide

You should do all that you can to make sure cockroaches have nowhere to hide.

Start by reducing the clutter in your home. Cockroaches love to hide in every nook and cranny they can find.

Every pile of rubbish or collection of boxes is a spot where cockroaches can gather.

You should also try and seal up entry points like the bottom crack in doors or windows.
4) Baking soda/sugar to remove cockroaches

If you’re looking for a way to kill cockroaches without potentially dangerous chemicals, then there is an option for you.

You can remove cockroaches by mixing equal parts baking soda and sugar together and putting it in an area where you think termites are about.

The sugar will attract the cockroaches and the baking soda, which is toxic to them, will react in their stomachs to kill them.
