There is not a single person on the planet that likes cockroaches.
It is said about cockroaches that if there was a nuclear war on the Earth, only Keith Richards and cockroaches would survive!
Although it is funny, but this saying is very much true, at least when it comes to cockroaches. They are known about their hardiness and their ability to survive even in the most extreme and hard conditions. For instance, in 1945, when the USA bombed Japan, it was reported that only the cockroaches survived in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
We should mention the fact that cockroaches can survive even in the craziest conditions – even without a head.
This is pretty much bad news for the almost-eternal efforts of people to get roaches out of their homes and other buildings. Many of you probably think that the roaches have won the fight. However, do not give up! We are able to crush those little insects. Here is how.
The Trick To Getting Rid Of Cockroaches
This cockroach-be-gone potion is made from a substance that might actually be surprising to you. It’s not something you normally think of as being deadly.
For the trick, you are going to need:
- A bowl
- A fork
- 100% boric acid
What you should first is to boil the eggs for 12-15 minutes. Then, remove the shell. Be careful, they will be hot!
Then, remove the yolks and place them in another container. You will need the yolks to mix the boric acid with. You won’t need the whites. Add 2.5 oz of boric acid to the yolks.
In between, add one and a half cup of sugar to aid the consistency of the final product. Keep adding sugar to the mixture until it is no longer crummy. It should resemble play-dough.
You should not worry about your safety as this substance is completely safe for you to touch and handle. If you have curious children or pets, however, I strongly recommend you be careful about where you leave this, as, although it’s safe to touch, it is certainly not safe to put in your mouth.
Once the mixture gets the play-dough consistency, make balls from the mixture and then place them all around your house. Make sure they are everywhere – in the closets, on the shelves, in the kitchen cabinets. Also, do not forget to put some in the bathroom, because this is one of the places of your home that cockroaches love, because it is often wet and dark.
Once you’ve spread the weapons of roach destruction around your home, wait.
Soon as you may expect you’ll start finding a lot of dead cockroaches around your house. If you cannot stand the sight of dead roaches, it is about time to buy a Roomba.
