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. Junji Takano is a Japanese health researcher involved in investigating the cause of many dreadful diseases. I get this formula from one of his books.

Thanks zandi, very useful info. I wish I had this recipe at the townhouse I used to live in before I got married. The place was infested with cockroaches and when I confronted the landlord about it he accused me of bad housekeeping; I had only moved in two days before! We ended up getting the place sprayed and paid for it ourselves because I could not stand it anymore. I have never had such a huge problem since then; what bothers me now is ants, do you have any recipe for get rid of ants?

What a horrible landlord/and did you stay for long there/ Turmeric powder can be used-- make a thin line of this powder round the container in which you store sweet delicacies.

I didn't live there for too long because I moved in with my friend after six months or so. Nice place but horrible landlord with too many roaches! Thanks for the ant hint!

Probably the situation is not as bad as our place. The roaches likes warm and wet place and they thrive best in tropical countries.

Hi zanhi, the very thought of this topic makes my flesh crawl, I've only ever seen a couple in real life but so gross. But as you know about these things are the bigger ones which fly the same kind of dirty pest or different. I recently had a very large one fly dirctly in through a window and settle on a cupboard and I had to get near enough to the thing to smash it with a large shoe. So are the flying varieties different and unlikely ever to fester away inside a house?

Zanhi Hi .. I Do Get a Similar Feeling When I Spot A Cockroach .. Yes Same With Me Thea Those Ones That Fly Are A Real Irritating Activity To Happen Before You .. They Were A Pain In The House So I Called The Pest Control Team And Had All Kinds Of Creepy Insects Flushed Out ..

If there is one thing I truly hate it is roaches....spiders, snakes, ants are not a problem but I detest roaches. My cat gets any mice. Thank you so much for listing the ingredients. I'll be trying this for sure.

I recommend you try this method and soon you'll see that roaches will no longer be a problem in your house. Roaches are not choosy pests, they will go anywhere as long as they can find a hiding place in all nooks and corners of a house regardless whether the house is clean or messy.

Excellent Zandi.I shall try this. Right now, there is a chalk abvailable in our place. It is named 'Lakshman Rekha' and we just draw crisscross lines along the kitchen or wherever they abound.

That is really an interesting recipe. Will book mark this page for future use. Definitely more eco friendly than using pesticides and insecticide sprays. Up till now, I still do not know where to go to get Boric acid. Hmm... if there is a recipe for getting rid of roaches, are there any recipe for getting rid of ants?

This is a formula concocted by a known Japanese researcher and he has done a lot of trail before publishing this recipe. Give it a try.

Like I said, I still need to figure out where to go to get boric acid for the recipe. I read some where that some one also has a recipe for getting rid of ants and using boric acid as one of the ingredients as well. Thanks for sharing though. I would love to try out the recipe when I can. ;)

Hmmm...this just might be a low-cost weapon in my own war against cockroaches! If this weapon works, you deserve a medal of honor. I even saw a LARGE cockroach, bigger than the standard ones i've been seeing, and that includes a smaller cockroach that i've spotted crawling up my hung-up bathrobe last week. When you've been around cockroaches that chip away at your sanity and your overall health for a long time like I was, this is where I support my right to keep and bear arms against them; ANY AND ALL ARMS against them. A line has been drawn, and war has been declared. CHAAAAAARRRGE!!!

Hi zandi, Cockroaches where occupied our home when we came back after the vacation from our native place. They were ruling everywhere including the fridge which was switched off. We had a tough time with them in the beginning and we used some sprays then somebody suggested a powder (now I can’t member the name of that powder) which should be made in a paste form by adding milk in it then applied everywhere. Within two days every Cockroaches disappeared. The Cockroaches were small in size but was really a nuisance. (I am posting my reply again)
