Wonder Of Pest Control When It Comes To Kitchen Bug Pro...

Bugs are usually attracted to food and food particles that people can’t even see, so the kitchen is a natural place for bugs to congregate and start causing problems.

Getting a pest control is a cumbersome task and can also cost you lots of money, while using chemically synthesized insecticides and pesticides will be equally unhealthy for your family as it is for the bugs. So why not try some natural ways to get rid of these bugs from bugging you. Though kitchen bugs can be stubborn and difficult to deal with at first, it is possible to destroy them and prevent another infestation down the road.

Trying Natural Stuffs

Soap Solution – Using a soap solution is the easiest way to eliminate all the bugs in your kitchen. You need to make some soap solution by mixing any type of soap with water and store it in a bottle, preferably a spray bottle. Now just splash this solution over any insect you spot or simply on your kitchen counter after cleaning it. Soap water works best for killing cockroaches as it forms a thin layer over their skin and roaches breathe from their skin. So the moment the body of the roach, especially the head and abdomen comes in contact with the soapy water, it will die.

Boric Acid – Another way to kill the insects is by using Boric Acid. Combining Boric Acid with flour and sprinkling the mixture over the insect kills it naturally and almost instantly. The kitchen bugs will eat the mixture and die. Boric Acid can be easily bought from a local pharmacy but if it is unavailable, then its supplement Borax detergent can also be used to serve the purpose. Boric powder can be either used directly over insects or it can even be mixed with sugar and water to make it more effective and is used as a common bait.

Being Preventive

Preventing the insects and bugs from entering your kitchen is any day a better solution than poisoning them and killing them. And for that keeping the kitchen clean is the key factor. And that has to be done on a regular basis and should not be just once in a while thing. Always keep all the food in air tight containers and store them in cabinets or fridge so that the insects cannot reach them and get into them. Clean the kitchen and scrub all the surfaces, including counters and cabinet doors, with bleach water. If any liquid or curry spills over the counter, clean it immediately before it attracts insects. Fix all the leaky pipes and check for cracks and tighten the faucets so that there is no scope for any standing water in your kitchen. Never let dirty dishes accumulate in the sink and wash them and put them back to their place as soon as possible.
