As you, I tried to keep my kitchen clean. However, I live in an old apartment full of holes and dark corners. Cockroaches arrived last summer. It’s disgusting! They’re big and I don’t want to see them anymore! I’ve put down roach traps and I have tried having the house sprayed several times. I’ve also tried spraying it myself! In fact, I was desperate. The number of cockroaches seemed lower, but they were not completely eliminated. What could I do?

Once cockroaches make themselves at home in a house, it can be very difficult to kick them out. They can snack on your food and drink, damage wallpaper, books, and electronics (they love electronics!), and I read on internet that some species of cockroach also spread germs to humans.

After a month of despair, a neighbor gave me a natural remedy. It is simple and cheap and…. It works!

Cockroaches cannot stand the smell of laurel. Then, get 10 or 12 sprigs of laurel, and place them on the doors, windows, and behind the refrigerator. Cockroaches will leave your house… forever!

“What scares me? Oh, now that’s a big question. I don’t know what scares me – cockroaches, nuclear apocalypse. Fear is an interesting thing. It has a place in all of our lives. I try to be as fearless as possible. I don’t always succeed, but I like to think I try.” By Zachary Quinto.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

“Natural selection shaped the human brain to be drawn toward aspects of nature that enhance our survival and reproduction, like verdant landscapes and docile creatures. There is no payoff to getting the warm fuzzies in the presence of rats, snakes, mosquitoes, cockroaches, herpes simplex and the rabies virus.” By Paul Bloom.
