Natural Way to Get Rid of Roaches?

Answer

If you have them horrible roaches taking over your home, there can be natural ways to try and get rid of them. This is great for people with children and animals. First you want to get some baking soda, and mix it with sugar. Take the mixture and sprinkle in some corners of your home. The sugar will bring them to the mixture and the baking soda will bloat the roaches and kill them eventually. Borax, which is boric acid, will also get rid of these nasty varmints. Borax is used to make laundry soap, but if the cockroach brushes up against this powdery substance, it will make the roaches outer shell dry, this making it dehydrated, and it will die.
