If you are already trying to rid your house of cockroaches, then you are reading the right article. This article talks about how you can eliminate cockroaches using roach balls with ease. Read on.
First off, you should get boric acid. Most of grocery stores and pharmacies have it. Aside from this, you will also need sugar, flour, lard, bacon grease, bottle cap and aluminum foil.
You next move is to mix up the mentioned ingredients. Get 1/3 cup of boric acid and mix it with one cup of flour. Now, add some minced onions or one tbsp of onion powder to it. Now, add one tbsp of sugar and some water in order to create soft dough.
Your next step is to tear small squares of the tin foil. Now, make use of that bottle cap like a mold so as to create little tin cups.
Now, you should take around one tbsp of dough and role it into a small ball. Then put it in your tin cups.
Put the cups at the backside of your furniture, cupboards and similar hiding places frequented by roaches. As you may know that roaches are attracted to food sources; therefore, you should choose to place the balls in your bathroom as well as kitchen. Roaches are also attracted to places where adequate amount of water is available.
Replace the balls every 3-6 months if possible. Every now and then, you may come across a couple of dead roaches. Other than that, you will have no problem to deal with. All you have to do is to follow the instructions given in this article.
Do not let your pets or kids touch the roach balls or they may get sick. In some cases, the roach balls can cause death if eaten by a kid or pet. Before you make a start on this procedure, you should carefully read the instructions that come with the products.
If you are not sure what to do and how to do, we recommend that you seek a professional pest exterminator rather than do the procedure on your own. Even if you want to do the procedure yourself, you had better consult a pest controller in your area.
