Top Things That Cockroaches Hate

Of course they hate any form of light they aren’t runnin away to hide only because they are afraid of you….

However, here is a list of things cockroaches hate that will still work in the dark…

• Bay Leaves

• Green Pandan Plant / Leaves

• Dried Mint Leaves

• Peppermint

• Tabasco

• Hot Chile Peppers

• Garlic

• Cucumbers

• Lemons

• Cayenne Pepper

• Organic Catnip

• Moth Balls made from Naphthalene

• Cypress Oil

• Citronella Oil

• Teatree Oil

• Lemongrass Oil

• Cigar Clippings

• Salt

• Bleach

So as to things like Pepperment, Mint, Lemon, Cypress, Citronella, Teatree and Lemon Grass using a pure oil or extract added to a mixture of dishsoap and water (either in a spray bottle or using a bucket and sponge) to clean your countertops and cabinets.

Another good idea is to juice 4 lemons and rinds and add to a ½ gallon of soap water and clean your kitchen / bathroom floors. You’ll love the fresh smell! The cockroaches definately wont!
