Techniques and methods, how to get the cockroaches out of the house, great variety - each offers a proven way to deal with unpleasant insects. But often, the proposed methods are not effective, and uninvited guests again and again appear in the apartment.
This is because, that the extermination of cockroaches should be a comprehensive approach, not only destroying insects with a variety of folk and chemicals, but also taking into account the reason for their appearance and observing preventive measures.
We are looking for the cause of
Withdrawal of cockroaches - a real war for order and cleanliness in the house. It should be understood, it is not enough to buy and use any insecticide, and it is important to find the cause of the unexpected guests and eliminate it.
Who should fight? species of cockroaches, living in our apartments, only three:
- black beetle - rare, basically getting to the apartment from the sewers, porches, basements. In appearance - large enough, They can reach a size large prunes.
- red cockroaches - persons, which appeared at least once in all apartments (they are called "home" cockroaches). insect size is much smaller, than the black brothers, but red cockroaches faster and more resourceful, It is making it much more difficult to fight with them.
- cockroaches - dark brown insects small sizes, which are very common in high-rise buildings. These "enemies" to destroy is very difficult and to deal with them will need a lot of effort and patience.
What attracts these "uninvited" guests in the house? If there were cockroaches in the house for a long time and do not want to leave the apartment, means they need somewhere to eat and drink water. I.e, the house has created favorable conditions for their existence - perhaps, accumulates unwashed dishes, flowing tap, scattered crumbs in the corners.
Important! Ideal conditions for the existence of cockroaches - dirt and unsanitary. In most cases, this is the main reason for the emergence of insects in the house.
therefore, cockroaches to leave the apartment, enough to begin to stick to the basic rules of health care:
- Do not leave leftover food at accessible locations, clean food in the fridge or keep it in a polyethylene tight package;
- Carefully pick up trash in the closets, on shelves, in lockers, sweep and wash away the dirt and crumbs from under the furniture;
- Wipe dry faucets and sinks and do not leave the liquid in the cups, to cut off the cockroaches access to drinking water;
- Do not leave unwashed dishes in the sink for a long time.
Despite the apparent simplicity of the rules, not all of them adhere to the owners of apartments - as a result they have to take a variety of insecticides and constantly fight against insects. meanwhile, if you stick to the listed health standards within 2-3 months, Cockroaches usually do leave the apartment.
often it happens, that the reason for the appearance of cockroaches - unscrupulous neighbors. So before, how to get the cockroaches out of the apartment ever, should bypass the adjacent apartments, and ideally - the whole house. If the neighbors also present the same problem, to eliminate it should be together, otherwise rapidly proliferating "neighbor" insects will always penetrate from their apartments through the air passages and crevices.
we derive cockroaches
After that, as a general cleaning is done, and neighboring premises were examined for the presence of cockroaches, you can begin to destroy pests.
In the shops there is plenty of chemicals, aimed at the destruction of cockroaches, their action is diverse and different methods and duration of exposure to insects.
Means of cockroaches:
- aerosols. It is these insecticides are highly effective in the breeding of cockroaches, tk. have a high speed of action and totally clean the premises of insects. Aerosols act for a few hours, but no effect on insect larvae, if the latter had to postpone their. When buying aerosol should pay attention to the quality of the means, tk. some of which may adversely affect human health.
- gels. These funds have a longer duration of action and is usually safe for the children and animals. The advantage of gels, in, that they act not only on cockroaches, swallow poison, but also on those insects, which barely touched the poison. In this way, cockroaches are spreading poison throughout the apartment area, infecting other animals.
- traps. There are three types of traps: sticky - the smell entices cockroaches, and they are "glued" to the bait, electrically - killed by electric current, toxic - eating the bait from traps, cockroach circulate it to their relatives.
- Powder. According to the composition means may be natural and chemical. It is considered the most safe for humans and animals and is characterized by low price. Lack - Powder action is always delayed, ie. excretion can be delayed for a long period.
For, to bring cockroaches in the home produced various small, the pencils, pills. Their action is similar - means applied to different parts of the apartment, then cockroaches, eating poison, gradually spread it among relatives. These funds are cheap and effective, but can operate only with a small number of insects.
Important! Excretion depends on the size of cockroaches insect invasion - if too many pests, the conventional means will not help get rid of them.
At high infestation premises cause service disinfestation. Usually this is an extreme measure, but it allows, how to get black cockroaches, and get rid of small, but living Prusakov.
pest control service for destroying cockroaches using analogs of the above-described means, but more powerful and toxic effects. After this treatment, cockroaches disappear completely, but this measure is costly from owners of apartments, tk. the cost of the procedure is high enough. Minus the work of disinfection service is the fact, that after her work will require a lot of effort, to clean the apartment, and residents of the premises should not be in the apartment, at least one day.
Folk remedies to combat cockroaches also give good results, but generally operate only in the presence of a small amount of insects.
Common folk remedies:
- Boric acid. boil the potatoes, crush it into a puree and add the egg. Mix all with boric acid. Wear gloves and form small balls, which expanded into the field of possible accumulations of insects. The result will appear in 2-3 of the week. Mass extermination of cockroaches traditional methods do not achieve, but the escape is guaranteed insects - cockroaches will not be returned to the place of, where were poisoned.
- Arsenic. Poison mixed with sugar and poured in the kitchen and bath, near the ventilation slots and moves. This method operates on cockroaches momentarily, but not safe for surrounding themselves, tk. May cause severe poisoning. Therefore, it is not valid there, where there are children and pets.
- Ammonia. If the wash water underfloor addition of a few drops of ammonia, cockroaches leave the room (but it may just move on to the neighbors).
Another proven "antiquated" method - freezing cockroaches. The method is simple: when the outside air temperature -10 – -12 degrees are opened all the windows in the house, heating is switched off and the water. The apartment is in such a state for three days, then we can safely return to room - cockroaches die at a temperature. The disadvantage of this method - it can be done only during the cold season, and while all households should be evicted from the apartment on time.
We provide prevention

- Be sure to remove the bodies of cockroaches. These insects are often tricky "mimic" death and after, danger has passed, can quickly get up and run.
- If you use any funds from the cockroaches precautions must be taken. Many drugs do not only help, how quickly bring roaches, but also safe for humans and animals - can cause poisoning, allergic reactions and even death of pets.
