Great Gardening Tips

If you have never had cock roaches in your house then consider yourself very lucky. Here is something you can do if you have a roach infestation…first do not panic although that is really hard to do if you ask me. Put sugar and baking powder all over the infested areas. The sugar is meant to attract the roaches and the baking powder will kill them and always leave out a fresh mixture to prevent theme from coming back…or you can call the exterminator.

  1. We ran into this problem while living in the southern united states.
    What we did was similar to the sugar and baking powder idea.
    We mixed dry Nestles Quick with baking powder and it worked really well.
    We mixed it all together and put it into bottle caps all over the place then let them have at it.
    They eat it and carry it back home.
    They all eat it and the baking powder makes them explode.
    Soon, no more roaches!

  2. I have never heard of using baking soda to kill roaches. We have always used borax to take care of them.
