These annoying bugs are extremely slippery insects, so it is highly likely that if you kill them with some poison or spray they will end up fleeing to their nest. This makes it difficult to clean their remains, but it does not make it impossible.

The first thing you have to do is locate the nest of the insects. They usually look for damp, dark places, so your bathroom or closet is a perfect place.

When you locate the nest, DO NOT REMOVE THE FIRST DEAD BODY. It is important that cockroaches eat it, this way they will cause the chain effect and all of them will die.

If you don’t locate the cockroach nests, don’t worry. You can use other methods to remove all corpses. If the poison you used is based on boric acid, the corpses will remove themselves because of the component they include. The same goes for chlorine-based poisons.
