The most common type of house pests that you might have probably heard off are cockroaches. There are over 4,000 species of them all over the world. Moreover, these are insects that are generally dirty and this is what makes them dangerous. Cockroaches are known to easily spread germs and bacteria that can cause various types of allergic and asthma reactions to the people exposed to the viruses they carry.

While there are a lot of insecticides and chemicals in the market that you can easily use to get rid of any infestation in your home, there are also a lot of natural ways in which you can resort to in order to get rid of these pests in your home. Here are some of them:

Peppermint Spray

Cockroaches are not a fan of the smell of mint or particularly mint oil. Which is why this is a great natural ingredient that acts as an insecticide not only to roaches but also to different type of insect pests as well. You can make a roach repellant spray by simply filling in a spray bottle with both peppermint oil and water. To add, this spray is very much safe for both your pets and kids at home. All you have to do is spray this mixture in the different areas where you see a lot of cockroach activity in your home.

Bay Leaves

Yes, you read that right. Bay leaves are basically one of the well known pest repellant ingredients that can be found at home. It has been proven to be very much effective in getting rid of roaches. All you have to do is crush a quarter of bay leaves and sprinkle the crushed leaves all over the areas, cracks and holes where the roaches would usually dwell in. A trick to remember, you can also put it a handful of the crushed bay leaves near the bottom part of the trash cans so they won’t be able to get through by climbing your bins at home.

Diatomaceous Earth

This product has got to be one of the most effective yet safest item to use when exterminating pests at home. Hence the nontoxicity of this product, it can still be abrasive and strong enough to exterminate any type of insect pests in your home. What DE does is it dries out the exoskeleton of the cockroach which causes them to die. Although, if you’re going to use this product at home make sure that you buy the food grade type so it’s safer for those in your household. Pour in a generous layer of this powder to the holes and cracks in your home to prevent the roaches from getting in.
