Cockroach infestation and baiting


Trap them, bait them. 

 Roaches are the bane of existence of many homeowners hence pesticides, baits and traps are aplenty But not all of these work. Some may be able to get rid f roaches, but endanger the health of both humans and pets that live in the home.

While waiting for professional help, most homes try over the counter solutions to cockroach infestations in their home. 

Just like this Japanese roach bait that promises to get rid of cockroaches as shared by the website JPN Info.

“In the land of convenience, someone has already thought of a super effective problem. The ‘gokiburi hoi hoi’ houses will rescue you in your misery. It is the easiest and safest way to eliminate cockroaches without using chemicals. Sprays help temporally, but can not get them all. Cockroaches will hide in cracks in walls and wait for their opportunity to get back while you are away. So here come those insecticide-free houses, which will definitely help you out to remove most of so far gathered pest at home.” Gecko Pest Control in Lincoln is a good company to call for help.

Still in Japan, a man-sized roach trap had been part of an exhibit in a zoo as featured at the Wall Street Journal.

The zoo had organized special exhibits of insects and reptiles for the past few years, which included snakes and centipedes. But due to the popularity of cockroaches, they said they decided to focus only on the insect this year.”


British website Daily Mail meantime featured 100 million-year old cockroach trapped in amber. “A terrifying new species of cockroach has been discovered preserved in 100 million-year-old amber. While it looks little like its modern relatives, researchers have discovered that the 1cm creature has a number of unique features that made it a ferocious hunter. Scientists say the ‘pursuit predator’, which lived alongside the dinosaurs, stalked its prey in the dead of night and would have been able to give larger creatures a nasty nip.”
