How to kill a cockroach

Updated on June 11, 2011

Warning: Do not try this if you are below 15 yrs.

Cockroaches are the most disgusting creatures. Girls hate them the most. I have seen my class mates screaming out and jump over the chairs when they see a cockroach running on the floor. It is not so hard to kill the cockroaches. I’ll give you some simple tips. Not the old and boring ones. Some exciting and innovative methodologies. Follow those carefully.

There are a few equipments you need to use for this methodology. So first of all collect those.

  • A cotton pouch
  • Long thread
  • Pair of Gloves
  • A small plastic bottle with a removable lid
  • A driller
  • Cello tape
  • A drum filled with water
  • A wooden board ( 6” ˟3”)
  • A nail
  • Garlic

*Prepare your equipments accordingly. Make some small holes on the bottle by driller.Wear the gloves.

Now we will see the instructions. Read carefully.

1. Find a cockroach.

It is easy to find cockroaches in your home itself. Search in the bathroom or Kitchen or behind the book shelf or in your store room. If they are hiding somewhere, just make some noise by tapping. They will try to run away so you can easily catch them.

2. Catch the cockroach.

Target one cockroach and catch him carefully by his antenna or legs. Don’t hold it strong and break his legs or any other organ. We will give him a decent (?) death. Once you catch him, put him inside the bottle.

What do you feel about cockroaches? answer and score.

3.  CO2  (Carbon Dioxide) Killer.

Take the cockroach out of the bottle and keep him on the wooden board. To make sure he doesn’t escape, place his antenna on the board and paste it with cello tape. He may try to break the antenna and escape. So paste the legs as well. Now chew the garlic and blow it on his face (only the air, don’t spit the garlic on him). Do it several times. He will die by the garlic breath or carbon dioxide. Repeat it until you feel tired (after these processes wash your mouth properly).

If the cockroach is alive even after the first killing method, go for the next option. Put him back to the bottle. Carefully remove the cello tape. Always remember to give him a decent death.

4. Make your mom a KILLER (without her knowledge).

You have to prepare for this before your mom enters into the kitchen and start cooking. Take the cockroach from the bottle and put him inside the cotton pouch. Close it properly and fix it with a thread. Fix a nail on the roof ceiling just over the gas cooker. And hang the pouch there with the help of thread. But hang it in a decent height where your mom can’t see it. Let your mom start cooking. Cockroach will die by the hot air.

* I’m not responsible if your mom sees the pouch, experiment it and throw you and the cockroach out of the home.

5. Use the water.

If this experiment also fails, go for this one. Put him back to the bottle; place the lid carefully and tightly. Push him into the water in the drum and keep him for some time. Definite results. He will die for the sure.

Take the bottle out after sometime and check. If you still see him alive……… take the bug spray and spray it on. Simple..!

Catch the cockroaches one by one and keep repeating these methodologies. Voila! Have a pest free home.
