An inexpensive, easy to use and effective device that helps you in getting rid of cockroaches. Usually made of cardboard. The most important parts that make it work are:
- A bait that attracts the roaches with its smell. This is the biggest disadvantage of roach traps, because it also smells somewhat unpleasantly to people, but the smell will be too weak to detect after a day or so... But it still works on the roaches.
- A sticky area around the bait on which the roaches get stuck until they die from lack of water.
Use two or three traps per room (more in the kitchen) and exchange them every couple of weeks, and you'll enjoy relatively roach-free rooms
