How To Kill Flying Cockroaches

Are you talking about the ones that are running around in your house? I might know what’s going on, but I need to ask you a few questions first. What happens when you see them? Are you trying to kill them or run away from them? Generally, people want a way to kill them. But first, let’s get down to the basics and answer some of those questions. You might be thinking to yourself right now, “Can cockroaches really fly?” And even if you don’t want to admit it — the answer is yes. Cockroaches are capable of flying, though they will only do so in rare circumstances. I’ll cover everything there is to know about flying cockroaches and all of their other little secrets as well. When you see a cockroach flying, your first reaction might be to panic. You dread the moment when you look into your kitchen and there’s a cockroach flying in the air, trying to land on the kitchen counter. However, it’s worth taking the time to understand how they can fly and then how to eradicate them from your home. Cockroaches are stealthy creatures. If you see one there’s a good chance it had already flown off and high up in the air. That’s because flying cockroaches are sneaky, just like their earthly cousins on the ground. They keep this secret to help them survive and thrive in any environment they find themselves. That said, what really happens when a cockroach flies? And how do you get rid of flying bugs in your home?

How To Kill Flying Cockroaches

Leave a bucket of soapy water out overnight

You can use a bucket of soapy water to kill flying cockroaches. You’ll need to leave the bucket out overnight and make sure that your pet or children don’t get into it. While soapy water will kill the cockroaches, it may also attract other insects who are looking for food. If you have pets and children, please be careful with this method because they could drown in an open bucket of soapy water. Soap is also harmful to wildlife and aquatic animals!

Cover all food items in containers

The first step in killing flying cockroaches is to cover all foods in containers. Food should be placed in the refrigerator and stored in sealed containers, or kept in airtight containers. The second step is to vacuum, clean and sweep floors regularly (at least twice a week). Cleaning spilled liquids immediately prevents future spills from attracting more roaches, as well as preventing mold growth where the spill has occurred. Wiping out standing water immediately prevents any future infestation because it serves as a breeding ground for these pests.

Spray them with insecticide

If you’re dealing with a flying roach infestation and don’t want to use boric acid, insecticides are the next best thing. The key to using the spray is making sure you get it in the right places. Be careful not to spray it in your eyes or mouth; some brands are poison, so use caution when doing this around kids and pets as well. Even if the roach spritzer doesn’t contain poison, it may have other harmful ingredients that can cause irritation after getting on your skin or in your lungs if inhaled—so keep that in mind before using any type of aerosol product around humans or animals!

Finally (and most importantly), make sure not to spray insecticide directly on food preparation surfaces! You should also avoid spraying these surfaces too close together because some products have “repellant” properties which means they keep bugs away from one another while still being able to affect them negatively once they come back into contact later on down the road–so try not spraying near each other at all costs!

Spray air freshener around the house

You can also use air fresheners to kill cockroaches. Cockroaches are attracted to the chemicals in the air freshener, much like people are attracted to food that smells good. The strong scent from an air freshener will overwhelm cockroach senses and drive them away from your home for good. Be sure to choose a product that is labeled for use around food, as some sprays may leave residue on your belongings that could be harmful if you eat it later.

You should never spray directly onto surfaces where food touches, such as counters or tables where plates are set out while cooking or eating meals together as a family. It is also important not to spray any surface where food preparation takes place (like a stovetop), nor surfaces which might come into contact with food after being prepared (such as kitchen utensils). Finally, make sure not to spray any area where food is stored either before or after preparation!

Use a bag vacuum to suck them up

  • You can use a bag vacuum to suck up flying roaches.
  • Don’t use a regular vacuum with a beater bar, or any other kind of rotating brush that spins when the machine is turned on. The insect will still be alive and flying around your room when you turn the machine off. This is not what you want because it means that when you turn the machine back on later, it will spook them again and send them into flight mode once more!
  • For best results, use an upright bagless cordless lightweight vacuum cleaner so that you can carry it around your house as needed, sucking up all those pesky roaches wherever they may hide from you!

The best way to deal with flying cockroaches is prevention.

The best way to deal with flying cockroaches is prevention. There are a number of ways to keep roach populations down and prevent them from becoming an issue in your home or apartment building.

  • Keep food sealed in containers or tightly sealed packages, not just in the refrigerator but also in cabinets and cupboards.
  • Keep house clean by regularly cleaning floors and counters, washing dishes, emptying trash cans regularly, etc.
  • Keep garbage out of the house: there are many options for getting rid of garbage outside; if you have rats or mice as well as roaches then we recommend keeping an outdoor compost pile where you can dispose of organic matter like vegetable scraps from your kitchen instead of putting them out on trash day each week. (Larger cities often have curbside compost pickup.) Make sure that any food waste never goes into your kitchen sink drain!
  • Keep house dry: humidity encourages both rat infestations and roach infestations so avoid damp areas such as basements or crawl spaces under houses/apartments/businesses which may hold standing water during rainstorms (especially if they contain septic tanks). If possible install dehumidifiers throughout any basement area that might get wet during heavy rains; this may not only make it less attractive for rats but also less attractive for roaches since they thrive when there is plenty of moisture available to drink up through their proboscises
