Ugh, how disgusting! Approximately we react this way when we see in our house uninvited, but, alas, frequent guests - cockroaches. We are fighting with them, fighting with all our might, but so far with varying success. Once and for all get rid of parasites has not yet happened. But we do not lose hope - and all the new means of getting rid of the misfortune come to the rescue. What is better - insecticides, grandmothers' recipes, a call for specialist exterminators? We choose the most effective methods of fighting cockroaches.

Where do they come from?

The problem of the invasion of cockroaches often face urban residents. After all, in high-rise buildings, it is not very promising to fight against this filth: they destroyed it from themselves — they came from their neighbors.

Vile creations penetrate our apartments through ventilation ducts, through communications pipes, through gaps in doors and windows, it is quite possible to bring unwanted lodgers with purchases made in the store, with things taken from friends. Cockroaches live almost everywhere,extremely prolific and viable, moreover, they are considered the most highly organized insects.

They reproduce actively, but this requires special prerequisites. In apartments, the owners of which carefully monitor the cleanliness, comply with preventive measures, vile insects do not like it very much. Rather, they will find more "fish" places - where they often leave unwashed dishes, crumbs can be found on surfaces, there is access to water, and garbage is rarely taken out.

Unwashed dishes

The slovenly hostess will surely get a nasty “living creature” in her, not wanting it at all.

How to get rid of cockroaches

Much has been accumulated during the forced coexistence of insect control. But after all, what a thing - survivable creatures quickly adapt to the poison, stop responding to them and multiply.

We have to invent all new potent tools. They are called insecticides. Destroy cockroaches with their help, you can quickly and efficiently.

Insecticides

Preparations are of different types: sprays, powders, gels, pencils. They are good because they operate everywhere - they get into the most inaccessible places on cockroach legs or with air.

Cockroach Gel
Since the substances are potent, you need to take precautions:

  • remove people and pets from the room;
  • close windows and doors;
  • to carry out the processing of the room in tight, closed clothes, gloves; glasses and a cotton-gauze bandage are obligatory;
  • after disinsection, several hours must pass before airing the room and removing poisoned cockroaches;
  • Wipe the surfaces thoroughly with a damp sponge.

Do not forget before processing the room to move the furniture away from the walls, lift the edges of the linoleum and carpets.

Sprays can be sprayed, and powders scattered in places where cockroaches accumulate or on the way they move. But be careful - powders should not be available for children and pets. Sprays or aerosols are suitable for the rapid destruction of insects. The exposure time is not more than 6 hours. At the same time almost all individuals perish.

Cockroach Spray
Insecticidal pencil or small process and vertical surface. Poisons in the form of powders and pencils are permissible to use without evacuating the occupants of the apartment. This is their advantage, but when there are hordes of pests, more radical methods are needed.True, the destruction of this filth will occur gradually - from 2-3 days to 2 weeks.

Gels are also well established. They consist of tasteless poison and bait - flavoring vanilla, chocolate, honey. Cockroaches like this smell, they eat the mixture and die during the day. The relatives destroy the chitinous shell of the dead insects and are also poisoned. Such is the chain reaction.

Gels are made in the form of syringes and tubes. They are applied by separate small drops or they make paths, if there are a lot of insects, in places of their mass accumulation - under the sink, behind the cabinets, along the baseboards, under the furniture.

After a day you will see the first results of the gel. Entire hordes of pests can be destroyed in 3-4 weeks.

Gels are considered low-hazard means, are used in any premises, the risk of poisoning when properly used is virtually eliminated. Carefully read the instructions for each drug: precautions, how to apply - in what places and in what quantity.

With a difficult task - to get rid of cockroaches - help and other ways.

Freezing

It is suitable for inhabitants of territories with frosty winter. Plus in free and availability. And minus - in extremity.We'll have to open wide the windows and cool the room to minus 10, you can up to 15 below zero.
The main thing - to take care of the safety of plumbing and heating systems. In a few hours the cockroaches will die of cold.

Use traps

We'll have to first do the surveillance and find out the place of residence of malicious insects. There and install some simple fixtures.

Cockroach trap

There are different types of traps:

  • a delicious smell attracts cockroaches in a secluded place, they hide inside, and then they should be shaken out of the toilet once a day;
  • Velcro - pests stick their feet and can not get out;
  • electrical devices in which insects die from the discharge of current.

The use of traps will help if there are not too many cockroaches. The way rather auxiliary, immediately get rid of insects will not succeed. Pests will gradually fall into the traps, after 2 months it is better to install new devices.

Cockroach Lures

A similar way to get rid of pests is also effective with a small number of them. The bait contains poison, mixed with food that seems cockroach tasty. They eat the contents, simultaneously bringing the poisonous substance into the nest, from which their relatives also die.The bait is placed where insects will find them, in the corners, under the sink, near the baseboards.

Cockroach Lure
The method requires patience - it may take several weeks until you win. Destroy the first generation - a new abomination will hatch, it will also have to be poisoned until you exhaust the whole nest.

Professional Pest Control

Diseasers should be called if:

  • processing of a large number of premises is expected (at catering enterprises, for example);
  • the simultaneous removal of insects in an apartment building, a hostel;
  • you could not get rid of cockroaches.

Plus the work of professionals - in the effectiveness of pest control: using strong drugs that are more effective than those commonly used in everyday life. In addition, the result will be achieved immediately - all unwanted inhabitants will be immediately destroyed.

Disinsection in the bathroom

Before disinsection, residents and pets need to leave the room, after processing, do a wet cleaning and airing.

Folk remedies for the fight against cockroaches

Someone categorically does not recognize chemistry in the fight against uninvited guests at home. Then think of the old, time-tested methods. Popular among people means - boric acid. Here are some recipes for its use:

  • Take 1 part of boric acid powder, flour and powdered sugar. Scatter the mixture in the right places;
  • 1 part of boric acid, cocoa powder and 2 parts of flour mix and sprinkle insect accumulation sites;
  • Mix the yolk of a raw chicken egg with 30-50 g of boric acid powder, make small balls, let them dry and place in different places of the apartment.

Instant effect folk remedies do not give, their action is gradual (up to 2-3 weeks).

Some more tips:

  • make homemade traps - use moth balls and sticky paper;
  • try spices and cockroach scare products - cloves, garlic, citrus, peppermint oil;
  • put mothballs in the corners of the apartment. Cockroaches do not like this smell;
  • Adult cockroaches kill a weak solution of simple toilet soap. It is sprayed on pests, blocking their respiratory pores.

Prevention

A clean house is the enemy of a cockroach. Yes, it would seem banal, but true. General cleaning of the whole house and apartment, very thorough, with the ejection of accumulated rubbish - the first step towards success. And then the order will have to be maintained. And insects will not live with you. Even special means of destruction or scaring will not be needed.

On the contrary, it is difficult to remove pests from dirty flats, including with strong insecticides.

Cockroaches on the floor

Do not want to endure nasty lodgers next to you - follow a few rules:

  • thoroughly wipe all surfaces so that there are no crumbs, traces of food and drinks;
  • wipe the dishes, sinks, bath dry to limit the access of insects to the water, plug the drain holes in the bathroom;
  • fix dripping taps (a cockroach can live for no more than a week without water);

A lot of cockroaches

  • clean toasters from the crumbs that insects feed on;
  • take out the trash regularly, without leaving it overnight;
  • make sure that there is no peeling wallpaper, baseboards, crevices and cracks in the floor, where pests could hide;
  • seal cracks near the pipes in the kitchen and bathroom.

Are cockroaches dangerous to health?

Definitely - yes! Omnipresent insects carry on themselves the eggs of parasites, bacteria, microbes. A cockroach can climb into the ear and then have to extract it with the help of a doctor.

Insects can cause allergies, especially provoke asthma attacks in children and adults. Malicious creatures are covered with a whole layer of pathogens,that can get through the cockroach-contaminated dishes in the human body.
Therefore, peacefully side by side with dangerous insects is unacceptable. Even if you are not squeamish, why put your family at risk of getting infected with some kind of filth.
