• Clean all the dishes before bedtime and if the dishes are going to be kept for washing in the morning then make sure the dishes are kept in sink and they are kept in warm soapy water.

• Garbage disposal must be done in tightly covered containers and kept outside the house.

The most popular and honored method of cockroach control includes making a bait out of boric acid. Combine boric acid, wheat flour and water and knead the mixture to make the bait. The cockroaches eat the mixture and die after some days.

Arrange for a reliable pest control service that can provide herbal pest control or chemical pest control based on your choice. (Keep this bait out of the reach of children and pets)
