Don’t step on a cockroach without knowing this

Cockroaches can be harmful to both people and our homes. They step on and contaminate food, transmit diseases, and can cause property damage.

Therefore, it is important to look for effective ways to prevent their appearance and eliminate them safely and without putting our health at risk.

One of the main reasons why you should never step on a cockroach is because they can carry bacteria and pathogens that can cause serious diseases such as diarrhea, cholera and typhoid.

Additionally, they are omnivorous and can survive without food for several days, making them difficult to eliminate.

Instead of stepping on cockroaches, it is important to look for more effective ways to control their presence in our home.

A key measure is to maintain cleanliness and eliminate any food or water sources that may attract them.

Additionally, sealing cracks and crevices in walls and using traps or physical barriers can help prevent entry.

If despite your efforts, cockroaches continue to appear in your home, an effective homemade recipe to eliminate them is to mix sugar with baking soda.

Cockroaches will be attracted to the sugar and by eating the mixture, they will be poisoned by the baking soda.

Place this mixture in strategic places around your home where you tend to see cockroaches, such as under furniture or near the sink.

Additionally, if you are worried about the lingering smell of cockroaches in your home, you can use clove packs or lavender oil with alcohol to eliminate it effectively.
