Roaches are most definitely one of the most annoying pests found in any household. Not only are they hideous to the eyes, but they also leave filth in the areas they trespass. Before you decide to spend a large chunk of change on an exterminator, consider using a simple household ingredient to rid your home of these unwanted guests.

Step 1

Fill an empty spray bottle half full with hot sauce.

Step 2

Fill the remainder of the spray bottle with water.

Step 3

Twist and secure the cap to the spray bottle and shake the contents inside until they are thoroughly mixed.

Step 4

Spray the areas of the house where roaches are most prevalent. Be sure to also spray hidden areas of the house where they may hide, such as behind refrigerators, garbage cans or appliances.

Step 5

Continue to spray in areas that you spot roaches until your house is clear of them.
