The article explains why these three simple ingredients work .. Which I think is a great way to lure the filthy buggers to their death. It would depend on the environmental humility for this mixture to stay appetizing for the Roaches, but I figured this was a neat idea.


ISAAN:-- Jenjira Ponyong, a Prathom 6 student from Pracha-anukro Primary School, Kalasin province has invented a unique solution for killing cockroaches.

The student created the solution by experimenting with 3 basic ingredients: cement powder, rice flour and Ovaltine powder.

Diatomaceous earth eventually kills every insect that travels into or through it. About 1-4 days depending on the type of insect. I've been using it inside my home for 15 years and the ant onslaught every spring is short and very sparse.

Sounds like a sound idea to me, a horrid way to die I suppose but so is pesticides and since when have activists cared about roaches?

If anyone wants to or does try this, make sure you wear gloves when handling cement. It can do some nasty things to your skin if your not careful. One of those paper masks wouldn't go amiss either.

They never give out the ratios. Well, I suppose some experimentation is in order.

Nice find.

You would want it in a small trap so other animals like small birds can't get to it.

One would imagine that it would work on mice and rats as well.

Yah, other critters, pets and all.

Wanting to focus on the pest… heres is what worked for us. No pesticides… sticky bug traps. They are double sided and each package contains two traps. When one side is full you flip it over. Place along edges of walkways or walls about 10 feet apart. They swarm to the scent and get stuck.

Good for maintenance of heavy infestations but our outdoor chinese cockroach problem cleared up in about 3 months using these things. Every night they piled in.

They check in but don't checkout. Hah, sa-sa-saaa!

When I lived in Asia it was a known fact that if you had cockroaches in your house nothing else was there.

In Taiwan, we welcomed Geckos for the same reason.

Better the Devil you know than the one you Don't

a cool find for sure, but the bit about not harming the environment is not true cement creates c02

Powdered sugar mixed with boric acid does the trick. Geckos work good for the small ones.

I used this for fleas one particularly itchy summer when I rescued a neglected chihuahua puppy who was just covered in the little buggers. It really does work well within a pretty short amount of time, and it's fairly safe if you buy the food grade kind.

Not the lime, from what I understand. Seems like the little bit of cement hardens and creates a ball in the roach's gut and that kills it.

Diatomaceous earth - good stuff and perfectly safe for humans. Can get gobs of it at Home Depot.

The cement powder sounds cool. You would just have to watch that it doesn't get wet. Wouldn't want cement to appear in your house. Moisture can be a problem as well if the cement hardens (no longer a powder), it's then not effective against the roaches.

There's a difference between food grade DE and the pool variety. Both will trash your lungs and those of your pets if inhaled. That mentioned I use the food grade. Just a heads up for people new to the item.

Considering Thai eat cockroaches, this greedy kid is going to get fat on some extra crunchy Ovaltine imbibed roasted roaches.

Years ago a friend of mine sent off £30 for an advert in the paper that claimed a method of killing cockroaches that was 100% effective. He got a Brick in a box.

I have never heard of the Thais eating roaches. If you got something saying or showing let me know so I can gross out my wife ! She is a roach killer form several generations back; it is in her blood. Maybe some mentally challenged individual but not in a regular normal persons diet. So I will bet you a star you are wrong.

Roaches may carry disease just as anything else to include a chicken, pig, cow or anything you can think of but Thais are not fans of roaches. The bug that you might be thinking of is not in fact a roach, but a kind of beetle that resembles a roach only much redder and lives in the dirt not normally your house... Although I have never seen them eaten some of the markets do have all kinds of stuff. Yum Yum...Yuk

Thailand is the largest exporter of edible insects in the world (I think that is what I read this year). There is a huge water bug that is supposed to be really good, and they do make a dish out of a special cricket (they say it taste like popcorn only crunchy) also some grasshoppers are fixed by frying in a special sauce, but every Thai I know hates roaches and kills them on sight .. IMO as they should.

The only Thais I have ever seen with cockroaches were using then for fishing... Hey it worked!

Now someone is wondering if I have ever eaten any of the above ?

I am a steak and potato kinda guy so no I have not. But I have seen the dishes and people munching away.... kinda like popcorn during a movie. hahhah

Being that this is a thread to kill roaches, I wasn't thinking along those lines. Forgive me, I'm sorry. It's worthy to mention that Food Grade DE is the best type to use, just to be safe.

I was using some DE to kill bedbugs I picked up from public transit. Worked well but you're right... It's very dusty. The ceiling fan in the next room had a white edge strip of DE on each blade.

Speaking of perfectly safe... yes DE is edible. I heard that they even put it in toothpaste.

That's what I gathered too, the digested powder becomes solid inside the roach whilst chemically burning them too, lime gives you dermatitis if I remember correctly.
