Baking Soda and Sugar Mixture – In order to catch cockroaches, a combination of baking soda and sugar works quite well. Using a mixture of baking soda and sugar, you can lessen the likelihood of a cockroach infestation. The mixture is most effective when applied to dark, damp places in the kitchen, such as the microwave or refrigerator base.

  • Use Boric Acid To Kill Cockroaches- Cockroaches can be quickly and readily eliminated using boric acid. However, boric acid is dangerous and must be handled with care. Furthermore, children should never be allowed to access boric acid.
  • Spray Fabric Softener- Fill a spray bottle with purified water and add a fabric softener. To get rid of Sydney cockroaches, combine some fabric softener with water and spray it where they are likely to gather. If you locate any cockroaches in your home, you can spread this combination directly on them.

Cockroaches can be kept at bay by scattering them around the kitchen. Bay leaves make for an effective cockroach solution in the house as they’re non-toxic and suitable for humans and animals,
  • Lemon Peels Can Be Used To Repel Cockroaches- Due to their antipathogenic properties, lemon peels successfully deter cockroaches. Even better, you could combine oil infused with lemon peel and spray it in or around the house, paying great attention to the kitchen, storage areas, and other places where cockroaches might lurk.

However effective they may be in the short term, bug sprays and other insect repellents can never be a permanent solution. Hiring a cockroach control experts like us is the best approach.
