There is no need to speak a lot about the effects of the appearance of cockroaches in the house, as you have unfortunately felt them by yourself if you have been in the same situation.
Yet, what you are also well aware of is surely the fact that they are almost impossible to be eliminated!
Even if you have tried all kinds of products on the market to get rid of them, cockroaches just won’t go easily! Even if they do, they can return soon.
Additionally, we all hate the unpleasant smell left behind the over-the-counter products we use, and they are also high in harmful chemicals that endanger our own health, as well as the health of our pets.
However, we will provide a recipe that will be of great help, as it will help you get rid of these insects for good, and you will avoid all kinds of dangerous side-effects.
This is how to prepare it:
In a suitable container, put one egg yolk, and mix it with 30-50 grams of boric acid powder (borax or boric powder acid). Stir well in order to get a slurry mixture.
Use the mixture to make balls with about an inch diameter, and leave them to dry for an hour. Next, you should distribute the balls all around the house, especially in the kitchen and bathroom, and on places and corners where you have noticed the appearance of cockroaches.
Also, make sure you start considering the view of these insects and place these balls on locations which are visible for them, like closets, shelves, kitchen cabinets, and racks. Cockroaches will not feel the boric balls, but they will inspect them out of curiosity.
They will touch them with the mustache, and that is all you need. Additionally, the boric acid will provide instant effects, so they will not be able to warn the others of the hidden danger. The ill cockroaches will also infect other healthy counterparts by touching them.
What is best about these balls is that they are completely harmless to you and your pets, so you should not be concerned even if they are placed all around the place.
Yet, the effects are not immediately noticed, and you may even lose hope at first. However, in only a few days, you will find numerous dead cockroaches all around the house, and they will eventually disappear completely!
There is a chance that you notice a new generation of cockroaches 6 months later, in case the female bugs have laid eggs, but this same trick will help you eliminate them once more. Even if cockroaches start to arrive from the neighborhood, you already know the best method to destroy them!
Furthermore, boric acid is not toxic and is commonly used in disinfection products. Moreover, the 3% boric acid, or acidi borici, is sold in all pharmacies at a cheap price, and is often used as an eye wash solution, but can also be used for the recipe in case you cannot find it in a powder form.
