Mixture against cockroaches in the house

How to make a natural insecticide to keep cockroaches away from your home

An excellent product to use consists of a mixture of alcohol, vinegar, salt and detergent . To prepare it, simply combine the first three ingredients in a container and finally add a little detergent. At this point, mix well and you’re done. Alcohol and vinegar have an unpleasant odor for insects, while salt hinders their breathing. And floor cleaner? It helps to remove traces of food that attract “little pests”.

Insect repellent

Put the mixture in a spray bottle and spray it on the affected surfaces frequently. As a guide, during periods of intense heat and high humidity, it is also fine to apply it every 48 hours .

DIY repellent

A valid “plan B” consists of a mixture made up of:

  • one liter of water;
  • a glass of white vinegar ;
  • 10 drops of lavender essential oil.

Mix thoroughly and pour into a spray container. Although it is pleasant to humans, the odor released will drive away “unwelcome guests”. Oh yes, strange to say, but it’s a fantastic repellent . Give it a try and you’ll see for yourself.
