Get Rid of Cockroaches and Bedbugs Around Your Home

Cockroaches and bedbugs are two of the most common pests people encounter at home. Both can be controlled with a few simple steps, explained


Cockroaches can be killed by spraying them with a soap and water solution, or a little water mixed with tea tree oil. The fluid coats the insect’s body and suffocates them to death.

However, prevention is easier than treatment. The house should be kept clean and food scraps should be discarded immediately. Clean and stack dishes after each meal and keep the kitchen free form clutter so as not to provide shelter to insects.

Bed bugs

Treating bed bugs is more difficult as many are now resistant to modern chemicals. Diatomaceous earth (DE) can work if you place it around furniture. The substance is not harmful to humans but tears bed bugs apart.

Affected linen should be carefully wrapped and sealed, before being carried to the laundry to be washed in hot, soapy water.
