  • Start by making hard boiled eggs. Once they are cool, remove the shells. 
  • Remove the yolks and set it aside in a clean bowl. Discard the egg whites.
  • Mix the yolks with the boric acid then add in the sugar. 
  • Keep mixing and adding sugar until it is no longer crummy. The end product should look like Play-Doh. 
  • Once you’ve got the right consistency, form the mixture into balls. 
  • Place them everywhere in the infested areas—in the kitchen, inside cupboards and even in your bathroom. 

RL Tip: Keep this out of reach from children and pets. It is safe to touch but it can be poisonous when ingested.
