Don’t count on one technique or product. Have them with everything that’s possible.

Step 1- Get the Nest

To get the nest, you have to first locate it. Most likely it will be near a water source. Released roach baits to find out where the largest concentrations are.

Once you see the nest, spray it using the strongest roach killer you will find. Clean up every aspect of other locations with a bleach.

Step 2- Boric Acid Powders

Put boric acid dust to the baseboards and crevices. Anywhere there could be a little damp area throw in some dust. The dust will dry the region and help kill roaches.

Step 3- Bait

Put boric acid bait throughout the house. Put the bait under sinks, in crevices, under counters, or anywhere you find the roaches to become. Even put the bait in which you don’t they they’ll go; like that a wandering roach won’t set up a new nest.

Step 4- Insecticide within the Home or Business

Step 5- Eliminate Water and Food Sources

Just like humans, water is more crucial than food. Do not let any water to be standing in the home. Roaches like to live in drains so you can pour bleach along the drains of all your sinks to kill them. An advanced “die hard”, turn off the water to your house until the infestation is gone. For toilet bowls, add insecticide or perhaps a fair amount of bleach to the water.

All food ought to be tightly sealed in plastic containers. There should not be a possible morsel for a roach to consume. The only problem is that they eat about everything. Keep paper products and soap stored in tightly sealed containers as well. We could talk about wallpaper and books, but exactly how far do you really want to go?

Step 6- Keep House Cool

Roaches like hot humid areas. Keep the home as cool as you possibly can. Small appliances can be bagged and put in the freezer to kill roaches.
