Christopher Moss, from Prescott, Arizona, came up with an all natural recipe for cockroach repellent, that he claims to be more effective (and environmentally friendly) than commercial chemical sprays.
Mix 50/50 granulated sugar and baking soda and place it in their path. Takes about 3 or 4 days to notice a reduction and 2 weeks later, no roaches. The cure seems relatively permanent, although may have to repeat some months later.
The first big step is simple prevention. Make sure to not have any water standing (even droplets in the sink) and to wipe down counters to pick up crumbs etc. Some natural ways of removing roaches is to get a lizard (such as a gecko) or to get a cat. Both are known to hunt down roaches, especially a lizard. Also spiders can help if you don’t mind having spiders in the house. Some leaves, such as catnip and bay leaves, can deter roaches. If you see roaches, spray them with soapy water until they are coated. Also water mixed with a little tea tree or rosemary oil can also harm roaches. These are just a few ways to get rid of roaches without harmful chemicals.
I support these approaches but wish to add that it is essential to maintain proper hygiene and avoid storing food in dark places.
