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.
