Arsenicum album – The Homeopathic Cockroach Repellent

The homeopathic remedy, Arsenicum album (Ars.) 6C, is a safe and effective cockroach repellent. Unlike other commercial products, Arsenicum album has no toxic ingredients to harm you, your plants or pets, wildlife or the environment. It won’t irritate if spilt on the skin or poison if accidentally swallowed. It can be safely used in all areas of the house, even on kitchen benches.

Instructions for Use

Add one pill of Arsenicum album 6C to a spray bottle of 200 ml of water, shake vigorously, and then spray a light mist where cockroaches collect or run. If needed, a small amount of natural soap (little or no fragrance) can be added to the liquid to act as a wetting agent. The remedy may also be sprayed onto pieces of bread or cottonwool balls which can then be placed where cockroaches gather. Cockroaches will avoid treated areas for up to 6 weeks. One vial of 100 pills will make up 20 litres of cockroach repellent.


Store pills and liquid away from light, moisture, and high temperatures (normal household temperatures are fine). Close range mobile phone and microwave oven emissions have been shown to affect homeopathic remedies. Keep your pills and liquid away from these appliances.

    I tried arsenicum album 30C diluted in water as a cockroach repellent as that was what I had on hand. I wasn’t effective, I’m sorry to say. I will say I’ve used this remedy for other things and it’s amazingly effective for many problems.
