We’ve all heard the expression…
“When the world ends, the only thing that’ll be left are cockroaches.”
But, does that mean we need to welcome them to invade our personal space now?
Cockroaches are among the most resistant beings in the world as they can tolerate high levels of radiation and can even live without food for more than a month at a time! These insects are omnivores, eating both plant-based and animal-based foods. For this main reason, cockroaches can be found everywhere, feeding on nearly anything they find.
They’re known to breed and form infestations at lightning speed, namely because they leave chemical trace markers in their droppings. This method guarantees that other cockroaches will be able to trace them to find sources of water or food, and boom….you’ve got an infestation on your hands!
If you want to get rid of cockroaches in your home, there’s an all-natural way to do so that doesn’t rely on toxic chemicals.
Bay leaves are undeniably the best all-natural cockroach repellent. Though the herb can’t outright eliminate them, it drives them away with 100% accuracy as the smell is unbearable for the cockroach.
How do I get started?
- Place laurel branches in every corner of the house.
- Place 10 bay leaves in the kitchen or any other pesky cockroach infested areas. The bay leaves are non-toxic and therefore perfect for food storage areas such as the kitchen or pantry.
- We recommend putting bay leaves in your garden (especially if you have a pet). This way you will eliminate cockroaches without worrying about your kids or animals security.
- You can use fresh bay leaves or dry. But the best way to use these leaves is to crush dry leaves and make a powder. They create a much stronger smell used by doing this.
