Remedy for Roaches

A friend read a news article about getting rid of roaches and by George, it works.


  • 1/4 cup shortening or bacon drippings
  • 1/8 c sugar
  • 8 ozs. boric acid (found where canning items are, usually)
  • 1/2 c flour
  • 1/2 small onion chopped (optional)
  • enough water to make a soft dough

Mix the shortening and sugar together until they form a creamy mixture. Mix the boric acid, flour, and onion, then add to the shortening mixture. Blend well, then add just enough water to form a soft dough. Shape into small balls or just drop globs into an open plastic sandwich bag to keep them moist longer. When the dough gets hard it's time to replace it. Place these balls throughout the house: under sinks, behind appliances, etc. The food attracts the roach and it will eat it or absorb it

BE SURE to label the bags and keep these away from CHILDREN and PETS because it is poisonous. I guarantee it works.

Remedy for Roaches

(sent by email) My husband lived along the gulf coast for years and the roaches were plentiful in that area. They purchased boric acid and sprinkled it all around cracks and crevices and within two weeks they were rid of them. It works.
