How to Prevent Cockroaches from Invading Your Apartment?

Recommended Posts

I know this is a disgusting topic / question... but I rent a room in an apartment where the others are not so clean.

What is the best way to kill and prevent these critters from entering my room?

Anyone else had experience killing these bugs?

 We use this Raid Max, it is very effective even with scorpions, it kills them immediately, eventually we also spray Cypermethrin combined with water and diesel, but with that you have to be very careful :)

I spray with HOME DEFENSE around windows, doors, any cracks, baseboard, then when that's dry I use Boric Acid (mix with a little sugar), put Boric Acid under all sinks around pipes, closet corners wherever they may enter. 20 Mule team Borax also works (old detergent) also mix with a little sugar, kills ants too. After a few weeks you should be ok. Mixture is ineffective if it gets wet.  Bay Leaves will keep them away also. I use all of these methods, have not seen a cockroach (maybe dead) in almost 1 year. One more thing sprinkle mixture behind stove, under all kitchen appliances  and in garage that's where they like to nest.

I used to hear Boric Acid a lot. They drag their rear ends through it and take it back to the nest, where it's sayanora.
