Cockroaches are one of the oldest living insect pests on this planet, and cockroach eggs are even believed to be immune to radiation poisoning. No wonder that a sure-shot eradication method does not exist for these insects! Try a few of these methods for locating and eliminating cockroach eggs in or around your home. Common Thriving Places Roaches usually inhabit dark, damp and cramped spaces. These places are usually found below kitchen sinks, behind cabinets, and in attics and unused rooms. Cockroaches are oviparous, which means the females carry the eggs outsideof their bodies in a cocoon-shaped sac. Upon fertilization, the females shed their cocoons wherever food is available. If you want to control cockroach infestations, it is advisable to find and kill the eggs of these pests. Finding Cockroach Eggs The moment you spot a cockroach making a beeline to some corner of your house, mark it and get ready to kill an entire colony of pests and their eggs. Kill all the cockroaches and their eggs in that corner. Cupboards, bookcases, the underside of stove burners and kitchen trolleys are the favorite places of roaches when it comes to laying eggs. Mostly, cockroaches lay eggs near leftovers that are not properly disposed and also near food items that are not safely stored in air-tight containers. How to Kill Cockroach Eggs You can vacuum the eggs out, burn them or pour some boric acid over them to completely eliminate them. You can also use natural pesticides or try out some home-based remedies, such as a mixture of sugar and baking soda, to gain some control over the cockroach population. Instructions for controlling cockroach populations Don't catch the roaches and then release them outside of your house. Chances are that the roaches will find their way back into your house or into some other persons home. Cockroaches are easiest to kill when they were just born. They don't quite know what life is all about or that they should be hiding and although they are small, they can still be seen with the naked eye. It is best to take a tissue and completely smash the tiny cockroach. If you let that baby roach get away, it as well as it's 300+ offspring can do severe damage to your house. Cockroaches can fit into tight spots! Any food that is intended for future human consumption should be sealed into containers with tight fitting lids. Clean up or get rid of anything that can be a potential food source for these awful pests. Vacuum up any food crumbs as much as possible.
