Roaches will be out soon

Cockroaches are getting ready for Spring. These insects created the pesticide industry and have created more jobs than congress. Next time you see a cockroach, remember that it is more productive than politicians. If you need to control them, you don’t need toxic pesticides or someone spraying your house on a regular basis. Most cockroaches can be controlled with beer and duct tape. I pie pan full of beer outside will attract roaches and they don’t check IDs. You can put duct tape down sticky side up in cabinets and other places where other insects or animals won’t get stuck. The roaches are attracted to the glue on the tape and will get stuck.

You can make your own pesticide free bug spray. Mix water (40%), alcohol (40%) and liquid dish soap (20%). It will control any bugs and clean your counter to. You can use any kind of alcohol, including vodka if you like. You may have to use it more often than a pesticide, but it is just as effective. It controls the insect or spider on contact and doesn’t leave a toxic residual. There are ways to prevent pests in your home as well. If you want you can have a copy of my handbook which tells you how to control most pests without using toxic pesticides or spending a lot of money on exterminators. The handbook is free. If you want a copy, contact me at Pesticides are weapons of mass destruction and are not necessary in your home or business.




About askthebugman

I have been in the pest management industry for over 40 years. In that time I have used almost every pesticide available to control so-called “pests”. With this experience, I have learned over the years that the pesticides we use are far more dangerous than the pests we are trying to control. As a result, it has become a passion for me to improve the quality of life for humans and the planet, by assisting people to not only become more educated and aware of their environment – but also by learning to manage their home and business with a sustainable and healthier approach to tending to unwanted infestations of bugs. Please enjoy my blog posts, check out my publications, utilize my services, or simply stay in touch if you have a bug question…
