As a famous saying goes: If nuclear war ever decimated life on this planet as we know it, only Keith Richards and cockroaches would survive.
It is funny but it hits home a very true point regarding their hardiness and their ability to survive even in the most extreme conditions. For instance, after the U.S. bombed Japan in 1945, reports emerged that cockroaches were among the only who survived the Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Closer to home, it is a well-known fact that cockroaches can survive in absolutely irrational conditions. They can live even without a head.

Here is the Trick to Getting Rid of Cockroaches
The cockroach-be-gone potion comes from a substance that will possibly surprise you. It’s not something you normally think of as a deadly substance.
This trick requires the following items:
- 100% boric acid
- A bowl
- A fork
First, boil the eggs for around 15 minutes. Then, remove the shell. Be careful since they are hot!
Next, remove the yolks and put them in a separate container. You will be mixing themwith the boric acid. Discard the whites and mix the yolks with the boric acid. Use 2.5 oz. of boric acid
Then, add in between ¾ of a cup of sugar – this will help with the consistency of the final product. Add sugar until it is no longer crummy. It will be like play-dough.
Don’t worry, this substance is totally safe for you to touch and handle. However,if you have curious children or pets, we strongly recommend being careful about where you leave this, because, although it is safe to touch, it’s certainly not a safe thing to put in your mouth.
When you’ve got the consistencylike a play-dough, Make some balls from the mixture and place them all around your home. Put them everywhere you want: closets, shelves andkitchen cabinets. Just pay special attention to the bathroom, since this is the one spot of your home that roaches love because it is wet and usually dark.
Now, when you’ve spread the weapons of cockroach destruction around your home, wait.
Very soon, you will notice plenty of dead cockroaches around your house. If looking them makes you squirm, it is a nice idea to buy a Roomba.
