1) Use Cinnamon, Cardamom, Clove And Star Anise

Combine all of the spices and tie them all together. Then, place them on the places that where there are a lot of cockroaches. This helps because cockroaches have a really strong sense of smell and the already strong scent of all these spices just causes havoc in the cockroaches. Thus, they would go away from the places where the spices are placed. Thus the spices do not attract the cockroaches rather it repels them owing to its strong scent.

2) Clean To Remove Things That Cockroaches Need

Cockroaches need food and water to live. So by practicing regular sanitation in your home, removing trash, cleaning grease and food debris daily after using your kitchen and making sure to not leave dirty dishes around your home, you can help keep cockroaches away.

3) Sprinkle Boric Acid

Boric acid is the best cockroach killer. Boric acid acts like a stomach poison. To make the cockroach poison, take three parts boric acid powder with one part sugar and mix thoroughly. Sprinkle this concoction in the areas roaches live, like under the sink and in the pantry. Use a thin layer to avoid them walking around it.

4) Liquid Concentrates

Another product available in stores is a liquid concentrate designed to deter cockroaches. Once diluted, the liquid can be sprayed into cracks and crevices and other areas where roaches like to hide. You can also mop the floor and wipe counters with the solution. If you’re wondering how to get rid of roaches overnight, this will be one of your best bets.

5) Set Cockroach Bait

There are plenty of cockroach traps available in the market like the Ridsect cockroach bait and most of them as effective as the methods mentioned above. If you’re looking to make your own DIY cockroach trap, you can try the homemade glue trap to bait them. First, get a duct tape cockroach trap, flip it upside down so the sticky part is facing upwards. Since cockroaches like sweet and starchy food, you can place either a blob of jam or butter on the tape. And now you wait for it to take the bait.

(Video) ‘Nagoro Doll Village’, A Mysterious Village Full With Dolls!

Published

on

Nagoro or now known as Nagoro Doll Village is a village in the Iya Valley on the island of Shikoku in Tokushima Prefecture, Japan. It is known for the large number of realistic dolls positioned throughout the village, which have made it a tourist attraction. The village is located on Route 439 in the Iya Valley, a remote mountainous area. It formerly had about 300 inhabitants, but the decline in Japan’s population has caused that to fall to 35 by January 2015, 30 as of August 2016, and also 27 by September 2019.

At first glance, most visitors to Nagoro Doll Village will see a sweet rural community of elderly residents spending their time blissfully tending to their gardens and fishing. When they decided to take a closer look, however, and they might be in for a scare. The villagers are actually dolls.

Nagoro is a slowly shrinking village located in the valleys of Shikoku, Japan. Populated by creepy dolls, it might make you question the reality. Its inhabitants left the village in a search of employment or died. More than 200 dolls inhabit the town. They’ve become loved by their human neighbors and are often celebrated by the community for bringing back fruitful memories of the past.

Eleven years ago, Tsukimi Ayano returned home to Nagoro. Faced with loneliness, she has populated the village with dolls, each representing a former resident. The dolls are all created single-handedly by Ayano Tsukimi. The local school is now filled with a few dozen dolls patiently waiting for class to begin. Made of straw, the bizarre dolls are dressed in old clothes.

Once working in the garden, Tsukimi made the first doll in the likeness of her father, and then she came up with the idea to replace the other family members with similar dolls. 10 years later, her work continues. Every doll is located in a place where she would resemble that person. So strolling along with the village you will find quite unique monuments either working in the field, fishing in the river, or simply sitting along the road and staring at you.
