Place A Few Of These Leaves In Your Home And Say Goodbye To Roaches Forever

July 27, 2016

Ugh, cockroaches. Does anybody like them?

They bite, they carry germs, they communicate via bacteria in their feces, and they run disturbingly fast.

If you've ever had a cockroach problem, you know how hard it is to eradicate them for good. These things can actually survive a nuclear blast!

Fortunately, there is a natural way to thwart these creepy bugs... and all you need are bay leaves.

Bay leaves are a surprisingly powerful and natural cockroach repellent!

To understand why this works, recall what I mentioned earlier about how cockroaches communicate via their poop. Their droppings give off an odor that tells other cockroaches where to find food and water, leading to infestations.

That's where bay leaves come in.

Cockroaches hate the smell of bay leaves, making them an excellent all-natural repellent. Just place bay leaves around all the corners of your house, particularly in areas with food. It's also a good idea to put them in your garden.

You can use dried or fresh bay leaves, although it’s recommended that you use dried, crushed bay leaves since they’ll give off the strongest scent.
