Cockroaches are crawling pests that normally breed in dark corners of the house, in drawers and drains. They not only bring diseases but they feed on anything that they can get hold of. They come out from their hiding place during the night to look for food in our kitchens and left their droppings everywhere. These cockroaches if not kept under control will infest our homes and become a health hazard to humans Here is the simple recipe that you can make in your own kitchen with ingredients costing a few dollars and that can last for a couple of years: 1. Boric acid (powdered form)= 250 grams (8.8 oz.) 2. Onion liquefied (without water) in a blender= 200 grams (7 oz.) 3. Starch= 20 grams (0.7 oz.) 4. Wheat flour (bread and cake purpose)= 20 grams (0.7 oz.) 5. Powdered milk= 25 grams (5 tsp.) 6. Sugar= 30 grams (1 oz.) Place all the above ingredients into a plastic bowl, and then mix them well. Place an old newspaper on the floor, either on your yard or in the garage and pour all the wet ingredients onto it and let it sit the whole night. In the morning, you will find that it has dried up somewhat to the point where you can make a small fingernail-sized balls from it. You can place these balls under the sink, around the drainage pipes, in your garage, storage areas or wherever cockroaches live. In a matter of three days to a week, you won't see cockroaches anymore. So where did they go? They are no longer in your house. They will be dehydrated by boric acid. They will be dried up. Try it. A dollar can keep your home free from roaches. I myself do not have any roaches in my house for so many years.
