4 Ways to Naturally Keep Cockroaches Away

Repelling cockroaches is one portion of an integrated approach to keeping your home pest free. For anyone who has ever suffered the frustration of a cockroach infestation, the need to keep the home as unattractive and unappealing for these pests is overwhelming. If the cockroaches do not like the environment of your home, they are far less likely to invade and infest it in the first place.

Making your home less attractive to cockroaches in Johannesburg does not need to be an expensive exercise. Let’s take a closer look at some roach repellents that won’t also repel all the humans you know.

  • Cedar Products

The oils in cedar wood act as an effective and natural deterrent for a variety of bugs and pests. There are plenty of cedar wood products available, so take advantage of its natural bug repellent properties. Look for cedar veneers that you can use to line cabinets and drawers, or cedar chips, blocks or balls that you can place in closets and drawers.

  • Moth Balls

Cockroaches, like moths, hate the smell of moth balls. A powerful tip is to drop a few moth balls behind the stove, to keep the roaches from hanging out there. After all, they love dark and humid places.

  • Essential Oils

Many bugs and pests find the scent of essential oils to be repelling, and cockroaches are no different. You can easily create your own homemade roach spray by combining 100% non-toxic essential oils. Some of the most effective oils at repelling cockroaches have proven to be peppermint oil and cypress oil.

  • Bay Leaves

Bay leaves are yet another scent that cockroaches are repelled by. Bay leaves are widely available from the spice section of any major grocery store across Johannesburg. Place the whole leaves or a sachet of crushed leaves in cabinets and closets. They are especially good for use in kitchen cupboards.
