• Roach Balls

    Roach Balls

    Combine the following items to make a paste.
    1 cup borax
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    1 tablespoon water

    Carefully roll into small balls and Place 2 or 3 balls into a sandwich baggie, leaving the top open. Carefully place these balls wherever the roaches may roam. They will eat them and die.

    CAUTION: Hide these bags so that children and pets can't get at them as they contain ingredients that are not safe for either.

      Did this work? I'd like to try something natural instead of those nasty sprays.

      YEP! I will DEFINITELY be trying this TOMORROW. I've also read that lime essential oil kills them as well. I may even try a few variations with that.

      If you take bars of Irish Spring and shave them all you have to do is put them around the edging of the home. Keep away from your kids and pets of course.
