    Hi Srujana,
    Instead of controlling them, just spot out the breeding place and destroy it completely.

    To get rid of Cocokroaches:
    • When you spot cockroaches at home, try figuring out where they are coming from. But when you actually get down to doing it, you will discover that this is not all that easy. Roaches normally live in groups. So check for possible cracks and holes in your home, which they might have converted into a living zone. Once you have spotted it, you can clean up the place.
    • The best way to prevent re-infestation of cockroaches in the house is by keeping it clean. Take care to regularly clean your house, especially all nooks and corners if you do not want the roaches to resurface.
    Personal experience:

    In our home we too suffered a lot to control the menace of these cockroahces. No insecticide worked. We tried hit, Baygon sprays. But no use. Then started to follow this procedure, Now no problem.

    Empty your kitchen fully. As if you are shifting your home. Dust all the shelves and corners. Cockroaches will lay its eggs in bulk. First Clean all those and kill the nymphs too... If its open space use baygon spray. I Think you can't spray as your's is a modular kitchen. You can wipe it off with water. Once you finish cleaning all those. Wipe the floors too.
    Then while replacing the utensils, mixer, grinder and other things, thoroughly check it. Because we found its eggs even in grinder stands, Mixie motor.....

    Do this process every weekend atleast for a month. Then there wont be any more trouble. Also check if there is any drainage line passing through\near by your kitchen area. Because its their breeding place. Use baygon spray atleast they 'll faint. Dont use Hit. No use.
    Also check the water sink line. Most cocokroaches will enter through this only. So you need to block the outer covering.

    Try this and let me know your feedback.

    The cockroaches enter the fridge if there is gap between the fridge door and the base.you need to change the foam that seals both.

    Good times are ahead..

    Boric acid is classified as a hazardous material. Try not to use it. It is extremely dangerous to pets as well. You cannot use this for your fridge where food is stored.

    Best way is contact a cockroach pest control company.. These companies use a gel that they will put in your house.. It prevents cockroaches for a period of 1 year. Its very useful, kid friendly, you don't even have to leave your house while they do it, its not poisonous.. They are real good, very famous in India these days.. Go to just dial and look for cockroach pest control companies,, your house will be free of roaches for a year.. Pest Control Cockroach in Hyderabad, India | Justdial

    It is very economical too...

    Hi srujana sakhi,

    Even i had lot of cockroaches in fridge and kitchen. I had almost stopped storing food in kitchen. Finally found 'No Entry' and my home is free of cockroaches.. You can find it in any super market. Make them into small balls and stick them in cupboards, window corners, corner of tables, doors, gas stove and fridge corners from outside. You don't find cockroaches for 6 months. you may have to stick them once again once you start finding cockroaches. Hope this helps you.
