Natural Cockroach Repellent: Effective Home Remedy #blog

This remedy is safe and effective, helping to keep your home roach-free forever.


  • 1 cup borax
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Water


  1. In a large bowl, mix the borax, sugar, and flour.
  2. Add the chopped onion and garlic to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Add the vegetable oil and enough water to create a thick paste.
  4. Shape the dough into balls, about the size of a marble.
  5. Place the balls in areas where roaches may hide, such as behind appliances, under sinks, and in dark corners.
  6. Check the balls regularly and replace them when necessary. The balls will dry out over time and lose their effectiveness.
  7. Keep using this natural repellent until the roach infestation is under control.

Note: Borax can be toxic if swallowed, so be sure to keep the balls out of the reach of children and pets.
