Nowadays on the market you can find various different products that can help you in the fight against cockroaches. However you need to know that most of these products are not as effective as you think they are.

What we are trying to say is that at first these products will help you get rid of the cockroaches, however they the problems is that the unpleasant odor remains in the house, and also the chemical products are dangerous to the health of humans and animals.

Now you don’t need to panic, because here in this article we will give you the recipe that will help you get rid of cockroaches. Many people who have tried this method claim that it is the best way to get rid of these insects.

And here is the recipe:

In order to prepare the recipe, first you need to take one raw egg yolk and put it in some container. Then you need to pour 30-50 grams of boric acid powder (borax or boric powder acid) over the egg yolk. Now stir them nicely until you get a slurry mixture.

Next thing you need to do is make balls (diameter-about 1 cm) using this mixture.  Now put these balls aside and leave them like that for about an hour until they dry. Next thing you need to do is put all these balls all over the house in visible places and corners. Also make sure that you pay special attention to your kitchen and bathroom.

However you need to remember that the place should be visible, not from your point of view, but from the point of view of the cockroaches. This means that you need to place these balls in parts of shelves, racks, closets, kitchen cabinets and all that is above your eyes.

At this point you need to know that the cockroach will not feel the boric ball. They will come out of curiosity. Then they will touch the balls with their mustache, and they will be doomed. Also they will not be able to warn the others cockroaches, because due to the boric acid their communication cannot reach the high level of development.

Also you need to know that these balls are harmless to humans and pets. This means that you can place them all around your apartment or your house, without having to worry about your kids or pets.

These balls will attract many bugs, and will eventually make the bugs ill or will kill them. Additionally the ill cockroach can infect a healthy counterpart in touch with it.

In the beginning, you will feel like there is no effect of using this trick. However in the next couple of days, every day you will be cleaning an enormous amount of dead bugs (of course if you have had a lot).

But be sure that in the next couple of days the bugs will completely disappear! If the female bugs have laid eggs, there is a possibility that in 6 months a new generation of cockroaches will appear. But this will not concern you, because you already know the trick!

In many cases, the cockroaches can come from our neighbors, where they have tried to poison them. However you don’t have to worry. All you need to do is place these balls in their places and let them do their magic.

Finally you need to know that boric acid is not toxic. Boric acid is widely used for disinfection, and the 3% boric acid is called acidi borici, which is widely used as an eye wash solution. At this point you need to know that if you cannot find boric acid powder, you can always use a 3% solution of boric acid, which is sold in every pharmacy at an affordable price.
