How to kill cockroach

Want to skip all the reading and just get straight to THE solution that’ll work? I’ve got you covered. This what I would do if I ever move into a house infested with them again. To get rid of those roaches fast and forever, just follow the following instructions.

Use professional grade roach baits. I recommend getting some Advion Syngenta Gel Bait or the Advion Bait Stations. When it comes to using baits, the more baits you have spread throughout the house, the more effective it will be.
Use boric acid and dust high traffic areas with a thin layer of the powder. Buy a bottle of Harris Boric Acid and the bulb duster by Dr. Killigan.
Place the baits in locations roaches like to hide in. Good spots include inside cabinets, behind appliances and wherever you see a lot of roaches. Place the gel on the bottom of major appliances, baseboards, trash bins, cracks, and crevices.
Using the bulb duster, apply boric acid inside the garbage bin each night. Leave it open and let them eat their fill.
Apply boric acid along the baseboard; making sure to get some inside the tiny gap between the baseboard and the wall. This creates a death barrier that keeps them from escaping.
Clean every night and put all food away. Leave no dirty dishes in the sink. No easy food means more won’t come in.
Continue to use the roach baits, boric acid and clean until they are completely gone.
This method is the most effective I’ve ever used. However, you have to be patient. This solution doesn’t provide instant, visible results like DemonWP, but it’s the most effective at eliminating the entire roach infestation (which is what you want).

Wait up to 7 days to see dead roaches and to start seeing noticeable results. Give it a couple of months for total eradication. They will be gone forever if you don’t attract more back in from outside.

Of course, you should read through the wealth of information on this website when you have the time. Knowing more about these pests is key to eliminating them successfully.

Identify The Pests You’re Dealing With
There are currently over 3,000 known species of roaches in the world. Four cockroach species are well-known to be pests. They are:

The German cockroach (Blattella germanica), the most common.
The American cockroach ( Periplaneta americana)
The brown-banded cockroach
The Oriental cockroach

I’ve listed just the four most common, but they aren’t the only ones. You may also be dealing with Palmetto Bugs (wood roaches). Even if you’re dealing with an entirely different species, the information here applies to any species of cockroach. The treatments and solutions you find here work for all of them.

Which species are you dealing with?
Knowing which type of cockroach you’re dealing with will make your fight against them so much faster. Different species have different preferences for foods and such. The more you about know what you’re dealing with, the better your chances are of getting rid of them for good.

The easiest way to determine the species you’re dealing with is to catch a few of them. I recommend sticky traps (also known as monitor glue traps) like this Catchmaster Glue Trap/Monitor. These are simple traps commonly made of cardboard and strong adhesives that will keep them in place.

Tip 1: To speed up the process of catching these pests for identification, add some small food crumbs in the middle of the trap. A little goes a long way here. , The bits will lure the roach on to the adhesive (because they won’t be able to reach the food crumb otherwise).

Tip 2: Choose where you place your traps wisely. Just any random location won’t work very well. Place them near familiar hiding places like crevices, and baseboards.

Once you’ve caught a few, pick up the monitor and inspect the roaches. Use the information on this website to identify them based on their physical characteristics. There’s no easier way to determine exactly which type of cockroaches you’re dealing with.

Home remedy to get rid of moles

1. Garlic
Garlic is one of the most effective home remedies for moles because it contains enzymes that help break down the clusters of pigment-producing cells. Plus, it helps lighten the dark pigmentation.

Crush a fresh garlic glove and place it on the mole.
Secure it with a bandage and leave it on overnight, or at least for four hours.
Do this daily for a few days. The mole will then fall off naturally. This method is said to give positive results with merely five days of daily application.
Make sure to disinfect the area with rubbing alcohol or another disinfectant before repeating the process daily. Plus, to protect the skin surrounding the mole, apply some petroleum jelly or oil.

Warning: Applying garlic on skin can cause redness and irritation.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a very popular home remedy for mole removal. Due to its acid content, it helps scab the mole and makes it fall off over time.

Apple cider vinegar remedy to get rid of a mole
Dip a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and place it on the affected area. Secure it with a bandage or medical tape and leave it on overnight. Do this daily for about 10 days or until the mole falls off.
Alternatively, you can rub warm water on the mole or lightly scrape the surface with an emery board and then apply cider vinegar on it until it turns white. Leave it on until it dries naturally. Do this several times a day.
Apple cider vinegar is likely to make the mole worse in the initial few days, but it will get better in a week. If it leaves a scar, apply coconut oil.

Note: To protect the skin around mole, apply petroleum jelly on the surrounding area before applying apple cider vinegar.

3. Castor Oil
Castor oil helps remove warts, moles, and skin tags. Being a discutient, it helps dissolve and eliminate unusual growths. This method is not likely to leave scars. However, it tends to take a lot of time as it gets rid of moles one layer at a time.

Mix a pinch of baking soda and a few drops of castor oil. You can also mix in ground aspirin.
Gently rub the mixture on your mole.
Leave it on for a few hours until it dries naturally.
Do this twice daily for about one month.
If you do not have baking soda, you can use castor oil alone.

4. Flaxseed Oil
Flaxseed oil is particularly useful for removing raised moles. It softens the moles and loosens them around the edges so they can easily come off.

Mix enough finely ground flax seeds and honey with flaxseed oil to make a paste.
Apply it on the affected area and leave it on for at least one hour.
Follow this remedy three times a day for a few weeks.
5. Iodine
A tincture of iodine can also be used to remove moles and skin tags. It triggers natural cell death and eliminates the clusters. You can get iodine tincture from a drug store.

Clean the affected area and apply a drop of 5% iodine solution on your mole. For flat moles, you can also scratch it slightly with an emery board before applying the iodine.
Cover it with a bandage or gauze and leave it on overnight or as long as possible.
Repeat the procedure daily for a week or two.
If you do not want to use a bandage, then apply the iodine solution two or three times a day and leave it on until it dries completely.

Note: Iodine will remove moles without scarring, but it is likely to stain the skin. To avoid this deep purple staining, apply a little lotion or petroleum jelly around the mole to protect the surrounding skin.

6. Pineapple Juice
Fresh pineapple juice can help lighten the pigmentation of moles, thereby making them less noticeable.

Soak a cotton ball in pineapple juice and apply it on your mole.
Leave it on overnight or until the juice dries.
Do this several times a day for a few weeks or until your mole fades.
For best results, use fresh pineapple juice made daily as it contains more citric acid. You can also use other acidic juices like that of lemons, grapefruits, and sour apples.
