The sight of cockroaches is disgusting, especially when they start creeping on your toes as soon as the kitchen lights are turned on in the middle of the night. Well, that’s quite frightening to me. Besides this horrible problem, roaches can spread diseases and cause allergies.
This recipe uses boric acid powder, which is considered safe for humans and animals. Boric acid damages the bug’s skeleton, dehydrating it and poisoning it. Within 24-72 hours, you will see results, but the entire process may take 3-4 weeks.
You will need the following ingredients to make this natural insecticide:
◼ 1 egg yolk
◼ 1/2 cup of boric acid powder
◼ latex gloves
The preparation method is as follows:
🟡 In a mixing bowl, combine the egg yolk and the boric acid powder.
🔴 Make sure you have gloves on.
⚪ Roll some balls that are 0.5 inches in diameter.
🟢 Let it dry for about an hour; it is ready for use after that.
How to use?
The first thing you should do is ensure that you don’t leave any food in the house that can attract cockroaches. You should then check the water sources. Make sure all non-closing valves are insulated and repaired in order to prevent leaks.
What is the best place to place the borax balls?
You should place borax balls where roaches gather most. Therefore, place them near walls, doors and furniture, behind the stove and refrigerator, in cellars, cupboards, drains, and even in the bathroom if necessary.
