In this article we are going to present you one efficient and proven way to get rid of cockroaches.
For the preparation of this recipe you need to take 1 raw egg yolk. Pour 30 – 50 grams of boric acid powder (borax or boric powder acid) and mix until get a slurry mixture. Form balls (diameter about 1 cm) of this mixture and leave them about 1 hour to dry. After that, distribute them all over the house in visible places and corners. Keep in mind to pay special attention to the kitchen and bathroom. Remember that you should place these balls to visible places, but not from your point of view, but from the point of view of the nasty cockroaches, such as parts of shelves, racks, closets, kitchen cabinets and all that is above your eyes.
It is interesting that cockroach will not feel the boric ball, but be sure it will come out of curiosity. Next, it will touch it with its mustache and after a while it will be doomed, maybe not to death, but surely to infernal itching.
Important note: These balls are harmless to humans and pets.
You can safely place these balls in your house or apartment even if you have small children, dogs or cats.
It is interesting that one cockroach is able to infect another healthy cockroach in touch with it.
Although at first the cockroaches will not pay attention to this trick, but after 3 – 4 weeks every day you will notice an enormous amount of dead bugs. After that bugs will disappear!
In case cockroaches appear again after 6 months, the reason for that is that females (or only one) were able to lay eggs and hatched the new generation. All you need to do is to repeat the same method.
