How to get rid of roaches without an exterminator

Cockroaches is always a big problem. The reason being if we didn’t make even a small problem into a big one, it will grow into a big one within months (not just big, but expensive too). In an ideal world where money wasn’t a problem you would just write out a check for whatever amount to hire a professional to take out these pests. However life revolves around money and many of us just don’t have the extra cash to pay for one. That’s why we turn to the internet for answers on how to get rid of roaches without an exterminator and such.

What are our options to deal with these annoying invaders? Well there are a variety of products on the market that are designed to kill them. We could just pick one out and give it a try. But if we had the money to waste on something we don’t know for sure if it works or not, we would have just called in a exterminator wouldn’t we? Even though there are so many products available, some work better than others. I've provided a list of the below. You can find more of them at

Some products you will run into are:
●    aerosol insecticide sprays
●    insecticide sprays
●    roach traps
●    roach baits
●    roach dusts/powders
●    insect growth regulators

The reason why I say some work better than others is because each of these serve a specific purpose. There is no magic all-in-one solution. If you attempt to use just one of these, you won’t be able to get rid of them. You’ll probably kill a few or some of them, but that’s about it.

To really get rid of them, you need to determine which products to get and you need to know how to use them correctly and for the right job. These very products are used by professional exterminators themselves. The only difference would be they have access to more potent and concentrated options. The active ingredient remains the same. However thanks to the internet, you are now able to buy the same stuff that only they used to be able to use.

how to get rid of roaches without an exterminatorWhat you need to do to get rid of roaches is use the right combination of these products. You need to spray where they’re hiding with the insecticide sprays. Then you need to apply insect growth regulators to stop the juveniles from molting into adults. Once they become adults, they become an even bigger problem because they can now reproduce and make even more roaches. A single female cockroach can produce as many as thirty to fifty eggs at once. They can produce multiple eggs over one lifetime.

You not only have to spray and apply insect growth regulators in the correct places, you also need to place baits and traps in the right places. You also need to apply dusts/powders where applicable and only when needed. If you were to use any of these in the wrong place or use it for the wrong purpose, it would be ineffective and sometimes even useless and a waste of money. For example if you were to just use insect growth regulators, it would not nothing to kill the roaches. Or if you sprayed the wrong spots, you’ll barely kill any of them.

Not only do you need to know which product to use, where to use it, and when to use it you also need a thorough understanding of what you’re really dealing with. Going in blindly, you’re bound to lose out on the battle and end up defeated. Now you know  how to get rid of roaches  without an exterminator, you need to apply the knowledge and take the action necessary.
