Cockroaches aren’t just disgusting; they actually pose a significant health risk to the homeowner because they can carry serious diseases. Even the cleanest homes are susceptible to a roach infestation due to the fact that cockroaches are able to disperse fully throughout the community under the many conditions.

Simple Approaches That Work as Homemade Roach Pest Control:

Cockroaches look for the same things as us when choosing a home: a stable source of water, a stable source of food, and plenty of room/passages for flexibility.

Try getting rid of the sources of water/food in your house by sealing all the food and emptying out the faucets. Close the doors and block the gaps between idle furniture settings. A hungry/thirsty/annoyed cockroach will start looking for a new home.

You can try various traps to directly kill the roaches, too. The popular choices include poisoned bait and “sticky” traps. Needless to say, the traps will need to be placed near the roach nest to have the best effect.

Try to estimate/observe and deduct the location of the roach nest. This is generally done by sneaking around to the place where you suspect there is a roach nest at night (in the dark) and suddenly flooding the room with light and looking at where the roaches are scurrying off to.

Or you can just place a poisonous bait in the room somewhere, and see where the roach carcasses are found – a multitude of roach carcasses would indicate a high traffic of roaches around that area, meaning that the main nest is close by.

If possible, try to identify the exact type of cockroach that is infesting your place. Knowing the type of the roach will give you a hint regarding where the infestation might be in your house and the best bait to use for them.
