This Plant Will Keep Cockroaches Away

Cockroaches are quick to breed and multiply; once they get into your house, there is no easy way to get them out. They eat food, stain books and electric products, and some of them spread bacteria. Many people use insecticide to kill them, but if you have children or pets in the house, this could prove dangerous for their health.

One plant that will make the cockroaches scatter is one you may regularly use in your cooking and may have in your cupboard right now — bay leaves.

Bay leaves are frequently used as a flavor in Spanish or Indian cuisine, but cockroaches hate its smell. If you place bay leaves in the kitchen, storeroom, garden, etc, cockroaches will stay away automatically, and children or pets will be safe.

Watch this informative video on how to use bay leaves to get rid of cockroaches:

You can put the leaves crushed up in a bowl and leave them where you think they like hanging out, such as in dark corners or behind appliances, and even outside your house.

You may grind the leaves into a powder — this way the smell spreads even further, and will be more effective in keeping cockroaches away.
