There are few sights as disquieting and disgusting as walking into a room, flipping on the light and seeing cockroaches scurrying in every direction. The mere thought is enough to make your skin crawl. And for every cockroach you see there are usually dozens more hiding just out of view.

While getting rid of cockroaches is seldom easy, there are ways to eliminate an existing infestation and prevent future invasions. You just need to understand why these creepy crawlies showed up in the first place.

Use baking soda to kill roaches

Baking soda is one of the most multifunctional products ever created, so it’s no surprise that it has the ability to get rid of cockroaches, as well. The best method is if you mix the soda with some sugar, first.

The smell of sugar will bring out the roaches, tempting them to eat from the mixture, without noticing the baking soda. After that, when they go to drink some water, a reaction with the soda will cause their stomach to burst. Cockroaches often feed on their dead comrades, so a chain reaction of death will follow.

Here is how to proceed:

Mix equal parts of sugar and baking soda in a lid or a dish.

Place another dish or a lid close to the first one and fill it with water.

Refill the containers with more bait and water when the dead roaches start to appear.

Place a couple more dishes around the places, where roaches usually gather.

Repeat until you are cockroach free.
