Cockroaches are terrible when comes to hygiene. It might be crawling all over your plates, pots or kitchen appliances without you knowing until you are infected.
Many cockroach repellent methods have been used for the past century to get rid of their existence in many houses. Killing cockroaches with newspaper may seem to be a good idea but the mess you made doesn’t seem to look nice. Even you kill it; you don’t get rid of it totally in your house!
Before introducing the method of cockroach repellent, many have told to use different methods to counter the cockroach infestation but the main thing you should do now is getting the entire little crack on the wall, ceiling and sinkhole covered. These places are where cockroach crawls in and out. Often you may find cockroach droppings in the cracks.
After covering the holes in your house, you might want to clean the places which are possible for cockroach to hide. Place that is dark, humid and smells will most likely to attract this pest. Make sure that your house is regularly cleaned.
Despite cleaning and covering holes around your house, some people may still prefer to use cockroach repellent as to keep diseases away. Well this way can be still acceptable depending on your personal preference and also your house surrounding.
The most common way for a cockroach repellent for home is commercial pests spray. Normally they use Ridsect to kill cockroaches. By spraying it around a room and close all the exit can suffocate cockroaches by having their respiratory system covered with oil substances. Spray to the place where you often find cockroaches.
If you don’t find the smell of the spray safe or having little ones around, you can try cockroach glue trap. It is basically a board that has a sticky surface with vary of different sizes.
You then need to sprinkle the little pellets provided in the package depending on which brand you buy. Different brand has different set up. For example, the one I know without the needs to set up is Rid-sect cockroach trap. Keep this overnight and you will find cockroaches sticking on the board. It is very easy to dispose too.
Besides, the glue and spray there is a method which is also effective but it is not good for human’s health. This is known as Moth Balls. Cockroach doesn’t like these moth balls.
Cockroaches will avoid going near to it. Place this somewhere far away from food. I suggest you to place the moth balls at place you seldom reach. For example: on top of your cabinet or behind the cupboard. Other than that, bay leaves are also like Moth Balls but it is safe to human.
The ideal place to set these bay leaves in place is in your kitchen. It is just like a spice where you can buy it at almost any grocery.
As to conclude the topic of cockroach repellent, I strongly recommend you to follow the ways you feel good with it as many factors can affect your decisions.
