Woman reveals what she uses to get rid of roaches in her apartment – her simple trick is organic and cheap

DEALING with pests is not something anyone wants to do.

And although people can simply spray bug repellant all over the place, this can sometimes be very harmful if there are kids or pets in the home.


If you want to opt for a more organic way of dealing with pests and even preventing them, you can simply use peppermint oil.

Like this TikTok user, you can put peppermint oil down drains, by doors, in the kitchen, and any place that roaches might use to come into the home.

You can also use an essential oil diffuser in the rooms and peppermint tea bags in your cabinets.

Although it's still unknown why they dislike the taste and smell of peppermint, it's possible that it's poisonous for them.

Additionally, people can use catnip oil, rosemary oil, bay leaves, and even coffee grounds, which are known to repel these pests.

But no matter how you decide to get rid of the pests in your home, you should never kill them by stepping on them.

A TikTok user, who was responding to a video of a woman smashing a roach with a shoe, quickly revealed this method is ineffective in getting rid of bugs inside your home.

Usually, when roaches are about to die, they "give birth" to their eggs.

However, when you smash the roach, you end up spreading the eggs with the force of the hit and even end up carrying them in the object you used to do the killing.

"So instead of hitting them with your shoe, do this," she revealed in her video.

"Grab whatever dish soap you have and literally suffocate the motherf**ker.

"You can also mix the soap with water – but this way, the eggs won't spread and you won't get any more roaches."
