Green leaf powder is an insecticide used to get rid of stubborn cockroach infestation in your house. It does not just kill live cockroaches in your house, it kills the eggs of the cockroaches and stops them from hatching.

One of the reasons why most people love this powder is that you don’t have to leave your house to use the powder because it has little to no smell.

Also, the instructions on how to use it are easy to understand. You do not have to be afraid of not applying it the right way.

Greenleaf powder works by attacking the central nervous system of the cockroach, this will make the cockroach have hypertension, and relax his muscles and nerves, before killing the cockroach. 


Is Greenleaf powder harmful to humans? 

The powder is not known to be harmful to humans or pets. There is no report of it harming humans. But you should be very cautious when dealing with chemicals even though it is made to kill only pests.

The ingredients may not be harmful to you but can cause allergic reactions. And please keep it out of reach of children and pets. 


What are The Side Effects of Cockroach Powder?

I did not have any side effects when I used the power but some other people have reported symptoms like nausea, headache, sneezing, and chest tightness when they use the product. Always remember not to use too much at a time. 


How long do Greenleaf sachets last?

The manufacturer prints the expiring date on each sachet, you can check for how long it will last there. It can be effective for a week when used in corners to tackle the cockroach. I left mine for a week before cleaning it up and all through the week I saw dead cockroaches everywhere.
