How to Get Rid of Cockroaches

Kick Them Out for Good


Cockroaches are scavengers. They come into your house looking for food and water, and they make themselves comfortable when they find messier areas of your home and food that isn’t stored properly. While prevention is the best plan for keeping cockroaches out, we’ve all missed a leak or left a bag of cereal unopened. If this pest monopolizes on these opportunities, it’s time to work on kicking them out.

How to Get Rid of Cockroaches

Glue strips

This should be your first step. Put the adhesive strips near some of the popular hiding places, and check again to see if you caught any. It’s a good way to tell if you have a problem, and it might need to be followed up by a more intense treatment.


Bait stations attract cockroaches inside that then feed on poison. The infected roach returns to the others, and once it dies, the other roaches eat it, ingesting the poison themselves.

Boric Acid

Mix boric acid powder with a bit of sugar and situation the mixture near infested areas. The sugar attracts the roaches while the boric acid kills the cockroaches.
