Cockroaches are disease-causing agents and you must get rid of them
Cockroaches are dangerous to have around your home. They help spread 6 kinds of parasitic worms, salmonella bacterium, E.coli, 7 types of human pathogens and 33 kinds of bacteria. The entire bodies of these cockroaches are full of these pathogens and bacteria!
But store-bought chemical solutions can be harmful
There are harmful substances in the chemical solutions that we purchase from stores. Many systems that destroy cockroaches can quickly become ineffective as cockroaches can quickly adapt and develop immunity. Common cockroach regimes and bait devices have become easily avoidable by cockroaches. They have actually wised up now; after all, we have been trying to kill cockroaches for so long.
That’s where borax balls come in
Borax balls use boric acid powder, something that even pest control companies have admitted can kill cockroaches. It works like a toxin for cockroaches by altering their skeleton and dehydrating them. Within 24-72 hours, you should see some few dead cockroaches. Give it 3-4 weeks for the entire process to work.
What you need:
- 30-50 grams of boric acid powder (boric powder acid or borax)
- Latex gloves
- Raw Egg Yolk
- Combine the boric acid powder and egg yolk
- Make sure the latex gloves are on for the next step
- Roll the mixtures into tiny round ball that are all 1cm in diameter
- Leave them to dry for an hour
- Now you can place them in every corner of your home
Cockroaches like living near food and water sources, so placing the borax balls within 5 feet of these place will be effective
Place the balls around crevices and cracks and around furniture, doors and walls. Don’t forget to also place them around appliances such as the fridge and stove; these are the places where they feel the safest. Sewer systems, electronics, drains, cupboards and basements are other areas where cockroaches like hiding. Even your bathroom isn’t safe, so make sure you place some borax balls around there as well.
Take back your home!
You will clear your home of these creepy-crawlies with persistent and patience (and borax balls, of course). In order to effectively protect your house and the well-being of everyone in it, you should do this the moment you see even a single cockroach. Remember that we are dealing with disease-causing agents here. Even one or two should cause concern since they can still spread illness at a fast pace.
