  • The appearance of black dots. You can notice them on almost any surface in the house. These are waste products of nasty insects.

Folk methods: 4 ways

Folk remedies for fighting cockroaches can help if pests have just appeared in a private house or apartment. In more advanced cases, they may not be as effective:

Sold in any pharmacy, and its price is available to everyone. Scatter the powder along:

  • all corners of the apartment;
  • plinths;
  • places of accumulation of moisture.

Acid gets on the paws of insects, and when they decide to clean them, then in the stomach.

Be prepared for the fact that quickly cockroaches will not die - the extermination of the population can take 2-3 weeks.

Add it to the water for washing windows, floors and other surfaces in the house. The sharp smell of alcohol will scare away cockroaches and they will quickly move out of your house.

The sharp aroma of ammonia will not only be unpleasant for pests, but also for you and your pets. So I recommend after leaving the apartment to leave it for a day, after which you thoroughly air all the rooms.

table_pic_att15015495226 Arsenic

A very dangerous, but at the same time incredibly effective way to control pests. Be extremely careful with its use and make sure that it does not enter the body of your loved ones or pets.

When working with arsenic, be sure to wear gloves and a protective mask. Keep it away from children and pets.

For a couple of minutes, you can build your own excellent cockroach traps.

  • Take a cut bottle, a jar with a wide neck, or a saucepan with low sides.
  • Lubricate the inner walls of the vessel with petroleum jelly, vegetable oil or grease.
  • Put something on the bottom that attracts cockroaches. This may be a slice of bread, sweet cookies or sugar.

So create a few traps, and then put in places of insects. Cockroaches will crawl into the dishes, but they will not be able to get out. You will only wash them down the drain.

Talking about how to get rid of cockroaches at home, not to mention freezing. This method is controversial, as it is quite difficult to implement, but it is still very effective.

Cockroaches are afraid of cold, so you need to ensure at least a day the temperature in the apartment or in a private house at the level of -8 degrees.

Household chemicals: 3 common species

For the destruction of cockroaches are often used a variety of chemicals. Here is a table of the most popular substances:

Their composition is usually not much different from each other. You can purchase:

  • Dichlorvos;
  • Raptor;
  • Combat Super;
  • Gett

After processing the apartment with a spray, be sure to leave the room for a few hours.

table_pic_att15015495259 Gels

Cockroaches in an apartment are successfully excreted using gels sold in tubes or syringes. They do not guarantee the instant destruction of insects, but at the same time much more effective sprays. Among the most popular gels:

  • Dohlox;
  • Trap;
  • Global;
  • Raptor.

It will be enough for you to apply the gel with a thin layer on the habitats of your unexpected guests.

What helps to bring cockroaches, in addition to sprays and gels? Of course, powders and crayons. You can buy:

  • Masha (pictured);
  • Mebelis Zipper;
  • Clean house.

Treat the selected medium along the baseboards and the corners of the cupboards in the kitchen.

All these substances will not help to remove insects once and for all if you do not follow the cleanliness of your apartment. You need:

  • Regularly clean the apartment. So you prevent the appearance of not only the Prussian, but other nasty insects.
  • Take out the garbage in a timely manner. Even the smallest leftover food can attract a crowd of cockroaches.
  • If a leak occurs, immediately eliminate it.. Sources of moisture like a magnet attract unpleasant insects.
  • Wipe the sink at night. Why it is necessary to do this is described in the previous paragraph.

Thus you deprive cockroaches favorable habitat for them.
