How to Get Rid The "Disgusting" Cockroaches

Everybody know cockroach and see it in their house maybe.  Cockroaches are not the beautiful creatures, they are disgusting. Commonly we find it in the toilet or the kitchen. It's not fun experience when we meet them, especially when they fly.

So How to get rid the cockroaches? Here are 7 methods to get rid them.

1. Bombs, sprays and baits

There’s a broad range of cockroach killers available in the supermarket or hardware store – the standard cockroach bomb, which involves setting off a gas “bomb”, shutting the doors and leaving it for a few hours; surface sprays; and station and gel baits. Ongoing treatments are generally needed to get rid of a stubborn infestation.

2. The ‘Vegas Trap’

Apparently named for its appearance on a Las Vegas news broadcast, the Vegas Trap is a simple DIY trap that doesn’t involved insecticides. The general idea is to use wet coffee grounds to bait cockroaches into a larger jar or container with water in it, where they drown. When you’ve collected enough cockroach corpses, tip out and repeat.

3. The natural approach

Sticky baits use a sweetened bait to lure the roaches onto a sticky surface where they get, well, stuck, and eventually die.

Ditto lizards such as the blue tongue, which might help itself to your backyard cockroach population.

6. Hit them with a shoe

The sixth method is depending on how good your reflexes are, by hit them with shoe or sandal. Magazines and rolled up newspapers are also a popular weapon, and shouting encouragement such as “Just die already!” is optional.
