HOW TO KILL ROACHES WITH NATURAL PRODUCTS
Okay, this is getting ridiculous.
With the extended warm weather, cockroaches are onto yet another cycle of breeding. They should be gone by now normally. In hybernation, where they usually go when it begins to get cold. But with extended warm weather, they are out and about and dropping sacs like you wouldn't believe.

I"ve almost killed myself using 3 CANS OF SURFACE SPRAY to kill the ones I could see the other night. I kid you not, I was a sick as a dog the next morning....so won't be doing that again..

Whats the point of killing the roaches and killing yourself in the meantime?

Okay GLPers I need a natural FOOLPROOF way to kill roaches and their eggs and need suggestions THAT WORK ASAP..

thanks.

Just thought I'd add, that they are small german cockroaches, not the big ones that I find easy to eliminate.

Feet.
If you get their front and back, both brains are dead.
Feet are natural. Almost every boy and girl are born with 2.

For those that need extra stopping power, hands and large wooden paddles work well. Newpaper for those that love the ol' "POP!" sound as you smack 'em off a wall or table top.

And for the crazy among you, new .223 Federal Rounds, for your AR-15. For the rugged that spare none.

Oh man that is really bad news. Please don't tell me I can't get rid of them.
I used a professional exterminator last time, a few years ago, when the last extended thingo happened and they were back within a week. He came back again , redid it and refused to come a third time when they came back yet again.

I just know this is outbreak is like the last one.

Boric Acid is what the people use in the projects...

be liberal with it, and pour it everywhere you see them...

leave it down until you don't see them anymore...

Would something acidic work? Like for instance, lemon juice sprayed right onto them?

Roach-Pruf

Basically, it's borax, you puff it in your walls via electrical outlet boxes. Kills them dead. I used this stuff on new apartment construction, and believe me it works. If it gets wet, you have to re-apply it, otherwise, it lasts forever.

It doesn;t poison the roaches it gets caught on their legs, and when they groom themselves it breaks down their shell.

Re: HOW TO KILL ROACHES WITH NATURAL PRODUCTS
BLEACH, even just the smell of it makes them turn on their backs and perish, just spread it over the floor or if you know where the roaches are concentrated like behind or in the back of a fridge put bleach in the general vicinity. If you put bleach under a fridge or appliance it will kill all of them. It works fast and efficient and it's CHEAP trust me I have experience

I'm told that HARRIS FAMOUS ROACH TABLETS (ORIGINAL FORMULA) works well but haven't used it so don't know for sure.

The active ingredient is boric acid (as someone previously mentioned). Supposedly they take it back to their nests.

Re: HOW TO KILL ROACHES WITH NATURAL PRODUCTS
Roaches are gods creatures too...they have a right to live...meh fuck it, just call an exterminator...
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

But if you mean to leave pools of it around, I'll give that a try too. Thanks!

go to your local farm supply store, they will have what you need. The chemicals will be a concentrate so you will have to water it down.

A landlord I work for bought some chemicals to spray his houses with to get rid of roaches, he bought it at a farm supply store .
He made the mistake of NOT watering it down and yes the roaches died within two days except he became very sick for a week do to the over exposure to the chemicals.

It has been almost a year and have not seen a bug, roach or fly in that house..LOL

Re: HOW TO KILL ROACHES WITH NATURAL PRODUCTS
[link to en.wikipedia.org] :5:

Boric acid was first registered in the US as an insecticide in 1948 for control of cockroaches, termites, fire ants, fleas, silverfish, and many other insects.[12] It acts as a stomach poison affecting the insects' metabolism, and the dry powder is abrasive to the insects' exoskeleton.

Boric acid is generally considered to be safe to use in household kitchens to control cockroaches and ants. Homemade ant bait can be made by dissolving 1 teaspoon powdered boric acid and 10 teaspoons sugar into 2 cups (~ 500 mL) of water; this mixture can then be absorbed into cotton balls which are left near ant trails. This reportedly will be carried back into the ants' nest, killing any ants that eat it, potentially destroying the entire colony[citation needed].

Boric acid is also made into a paste or gel form as a powerful and effective insecticide much safer to humans than many other insecticides. The paste or gel has attractants in it to attract insects. The boric acid slowly causes dehydration.

For ants -- I mix borax and something sweet - like honey or jam or syrup. I put this on wax paper or inside bottle caps.


You could use this for roaches too I suppose.
