Got a cockroach infestation? Go to War with These DIY Sprays and Traps!
There are few things in life as disgusting and filthy as a pest infestation – fewer still are as extremely vexing as a cockroach infestation.
If you’re going to war with an army of cockroaches, you should bring these DIY sprays and traps to the fight.
Spray Away to Repel and Kill Them!
While there are commercially available chemical sprays aplenty, sometimes the DIY course is enough. Here are some ideas for DIY sprays that are effective in repelling and killing those persistent roaches!
Pick pyrethrum flowers when they’re in full bloom. Dry them in a cool, dark, dry place by hanging them upside down. Once they’re dried up, crush them as finely as possible and mix the powder with water.
Be warned: it’s harmless to humans, but don’t spray it on surfaces where food will be served just to be safe. This spray is downright lethal to cockroaches, but it deteriorates quickly, and will lose half of its killing power within hours after the mixture is exposed to air and sunlight. It’ll still work, but it pays to have a supply of powder or flowers to mix for a fresh supply and spraying spree for maximum effect.
Lure Them in for the Kill!
If you want to be more passive about it but also be able to kill more roaches in one go, then DIY traps are your best friend.
All cockroach traps work around the same concept: Place baits in the middle of these DIY traps and the cockroaches will either get stuck in them and die, or get poisoned by them and die. Either way, they’re dead.
