There is a simple way to make them disappear.

You need one item.

That item is salt.

Step 1: Small amounts cast around

On the floor, where the wall meets the floor.

Every three feet or so, throw a pinch of salt.

Carpeted or uncarpeted. Floorboards or tiles - It doesn't matter.


Walk around inside of each room, throwing a pinch of salt down as you walk, every step or so.

Kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, laundry, garage - each room.

Then the hard-to reach places, just a pinch will do: on top of and inside kitchen cupboards, and behind the refrigerator, drawers, under sinks, all shelves and clothes wardrobes.

In the bathroom, pour a little down the sinks and drains.

That's it. Your done.

You won't see them again.

does it works for roaches too ??
or any kind of other insects
ive heard this works for fleas too but you grind up the salt until its a powder
Salt does kill fleas and you do not have to grind it do anything to it. Just don't let it get wet. We had an BAD infestation last summer and tried some very expensive stuff for several weeks before we found out about regular old salt. I went nuts with it. I just got the table salt out of the cupboard and started sprinkling it everywhere, in every room, on tile, wood and carpeted floors. I washed our two indoor cats with salt water and shampoo. After two days there were no fleas jumping on us at all and none on our cats. I vacuumed up the wood and tile floors after a few days but left the salt at the baseboards of the carpeted rooms for a few weeks just to be sure. 6 months later and haven't had any fleas in the house or on the cats. I even sprinkled it around our outdoor dogs bedding. Animal shelters around here use salt instead of expensive chemicals and brands too.

does salt watter work?

It probably works since insects don't like powders, because the crystals tend to wear through their exoskeletons and then they die of dehydration.
I agree.
