How Can I Get Rid Of Cockroaches? by Nobody: 5:26am On Jan 12, 2010
How best can i get rid of Cockroaches in my house?

A few years ago, someone gave a chalk that when i draw lines on the floor, it attracts and kills roaches. I remember that chalk worked very fine, unfortunately i cant find it in the market. Has anyone ever heard of the chalk?

Ewwwww I think roaches are attracted to filthy houses, clean your house and maybe they'll go away.

Get some spray.
Re: How Can I Get Rid Of Cockroaches? by Bisijohn: 11:03am On Jan 13, 2010
Let me give you the solution. Buy Snippers in the market and apply it. It will eradicate it totally. The cost is just N250 only. Try it and get back to me.

Roaches of today defy cleanliness, they are almost everywhere!!! I maintain a very clean environment yet those smal-small cockroaches found their way into my kitchen cabinet drawer despite the presence of camphor balls I keep there!!! some days ago I found a small one in my fridge even (eeew!!!). I have wallghekos too and they tend to eat the small roaches but I hate the sight of both. embarassed

Yes, Ive used the chalk too and it was very effective but I don't know where to buy it either.

Get someone to fumigate your house. I did it once and was free from roaches for a good eight months. That was pure bliss. Cleaning won't send them running away.

@Poster,

The long term solution to your problem is good cleanliness. If you say that you have no problem of filth in your own house, your neighbourhood could be the source of your cockroaches. Unless you attack the source, the infestation will not go away for long.

The answer to solve a neighbourhood infestation is to mobilise everyone to clean their homes and use spray to eradicate current insects.

If the cockroach problem refuse to go, better move to a cleaner neighbourhood.

I tell you this guy has said it all.

Since i was born I've never seen any insecticide that is as powerful as this SNIPPER.
I'm a living witness. Sniper kills any flying and crawling insect. Believe it or not, it weakens even snake.

The last time i used it was in Edo state, so i don't know where you can get it here in Lagos.

Try to also keep a clean house.

i don't have filth in my home and my neighbourhood is relatively new we are all just a year old there and i didn't bring d roaches from my former place cos i didn't  ave them then and in was over conscious of bringing rodents in

those small small ones will drive you crazy unlike the big ones that you can see the eggs and clean it out i am yet to come across this ones eggs

i just concluded that maybe they breed in between the new kitchen cabinet so i got mayself a syringe and a large bottle of snipper and got to walk and since then ave not seen then though i repeat this every month

the only thing is i did not get in lagos when last i was dere but its quite abundant in abuja

@OP

Clean ur house nau, Its too dirty! undecided
Re: How Can I Get Rid Of Cockroaches? by Bisijohn: 5:53pm On Jan 13, 2010
You can buy Snippers at Idumota market where they sell insecticides generally. When the tiny coackroaches invaded my apartment through the furniture we bought then, my wife spent huge amount on so many insecticides (Chalk,Raid etc) but all to no avail. It was when we got to know about snippers and applied it, t all the coackroaches and their eggs perished. Snipper works like magic. In fact, if it is sold for N5,000 is not bad at all.

Roaches survive on anything, they eat everything hence everywhere is home. Just look for holes in your house and cover them up. Use insecticides and spray everywhere. Clean your environment and surrounding.

You can see that so many people here are speaking from experience, just get SNIPPER and say goodbye to insects for good.
