  • A simple and effective roach killer is a combination of sugar and baking soda. The sugar attracts the cockroaches while the baking soda eliminates them. The baking soda mixes with the stomach acid of roaches, causing them to die slowly over time. Mix equal parts baking soda and sugar in a bottle.

    They don't like mint or lemongrass.... I use 2 commercial non-toxic insecticides that say they kill roaches..... EcoSmart and EcoLogic, and Victor's. I use for ants and it sure kills them dead. I guess you could get the essential oil and put it in a spray bottle, and shake well before using. But the price for a large can is only $4.

    It isn't DIY but it's fairly cost effective and safe: diatomaceous earth
