Cockroaches Gone! Easy, Natural and Non-Toxic.

Information on Cockroaches and Palmetto Bugs

I don’t know about you, but I don’t really care to learn a lot about these yucky creatures, but if you are interested here is an informative website on cockroaches. The only thing you need to know is that cockroaches love carbohydrates, especially sugar.

Pesticides Are No Good

If you have children or pet, you don’t want poisonous pesticides lying around. And let’s face it, the spray insecticides really stink!

Getting Rid of Cockroaches Easily, Naturally and without Toxic Chemicals.

There are many ways to rid your home or business of these pesky creatures. More than a few are natural and non-toxic, but the easiest one is the one I will profile here. Before you do this it will be worth your while to seal up any places where cockroaches can get into your building. And also remove all sources of food.


  1. Mix 50% Sugar and 50% Baking Soda, such as Arm & Hammer.
  2. Put into little containers that they can easily get into. An example is a small plastic container with a hole cut in the side. Or you can even use a plate.
  3. Place the containers where ever the cockroaches like to live.

The reason why this works is because roaches have an acid stomach and the baking soda blasts their pH level, thus blasting them. Because they can’t resist sugar, they will gobble this stuff up.

You will notice a drop in sightings of cockroaches within 3-4 days and within 2 weeks they will be all gone. And here’s the bonus: since cockroaches are cannibals, the remaining ones will eat the dead ones so there’s virtually no cleanup. Sound too good to be true? Well it’s not. It works! Good luck!

    I’m the only one in my apartment building that isn’t drowning in these things. The absolute most important thing you can do is seal up every hole, crack and crevice. If they can’t get in- they won’t be in. If its really bad, you can also weather strip your doors.

    Then, keep everything clean and all your food sealed. If there’s nothing to eat, they won’t have reason to enter your apartment. I also keep my dishes in sealed plastic containers so that they can’t walk over them and leave pathogens.

    However, once in a while something WILL get in- so you give it something to eat- roach motels. How sinister am I?

    Then, you throw boric acid around where it can’t hurt you and baking soda in areas where the boric acid would hurt you.

    There’s no reason why such a comprehensive plan won’t work.

    @Ant – yep, that will work. Congrats that you are roach-free!

    We tried this and we still have roaches up the gazoo!

    @Donna – yikes! My guess is that maybe you need to seal up holes where new ones are getting in. I wish you the best of luck!

    Boric acid works too and the roaches with the powder stuck to their legs will bring the acid back to the nests. The offspring will unknowingly eat them and get paralyzed and die. The thought one roach eating another dead roach is really disgusting though…

    ahh just get you some good malathion or dyazonin and take all you food stuff and dishes and put them in boxes and blast the inside of cabinets about once every 3 days to break the roaches reproductive cycle since no poison can hurt the eggs you need to spray in the time frame every 3 days thus allowing all the eggs to hatch and be killed and once the cycle is broken you have wiped them out

    Treatment for Cockroaches

    1. Clean the home prior to the pest control visit, and maintain the home as neatly as possible for long-term results. This helps to eliminate competing food sources for the insects. Additionally, when the home is clean, the roaches will be more easily attracted to the bait and not to food sources.
    2. Cover and store any open food. Remove foods, small appliances, and other small items from countertops.
    3. Store and/or cover baby toys, supplies and cot mattress.
    4. Mop/scrub kitchen and other hard floors and woodwork with detergent. Thoroughly vacuum carpeted floors.
    5. Vacuum up any visible roaches and eggs just before the service visit, using the crevice attachment to get into cracks. After vacuuming, take the vacuum cleaner outside, remove the vacuum bag, seal it, and discard in trash. Take a damp cloth and wipe down the entire vacuum cleaner. Continue to vacuum or otherwise kill any roaches that are seen.
    6. Always keep rubbish in closed containers and take out the rubbish every night.
    7. Remove items from the top of the refrigerator, cooker and any other such movable appliances. Prior to service, move these appliances away from the wall, and clean behind and beneath them. If the cooker has a removable bottom drawer that opens to the floor, it is not necessary to move the entire stove.
    8. Be sure that the pest control operator has free and full access to anywhere that cockroaches have been seen (or anywhere specified by the PCO).
    9. Discard all excess paper products, and any other unused piles or rubbish as these are harborage areas for roaches and other pests.
    10. Homeowners should repair any water leaks immediately upon detection; apartment residents should report the leak to maintenance immediately upon detection.
    11. If anyone in the home has special allergy problems, is pregnant, or is under the age of one, the PCO should be informed prior to service and precautions taken. All people and pets should stay out of the area being serviced for the length of time specified by the PCO.
    12. After service, keep sanitation to as high a level as possible to allow all products to work as swiftly as possible. Do not touch cockroach gel or allow children or pets to get near.
    follow this steps will decrease cockroaches

    Cockroaches are also known to pose a serious health risk to humans and the environment. So I immediately had pest control professionals take care of our infestation problems because I couldn’t deal with it by myself because of the roaches disgusting nature!
