How do I get rid of bugs in my microwave?

Bug Removal

If the bugs are dead, use a vacuum to remove them from inside of your microwave. If the bugs are active, non-flying bugs and there aren’t many of them in the microwave, sweep them into a plastic bag, seal up the bag and dispose of them or let them outside away from your home.

How do you get roaches out of appliances?

Spread a thin layer of boric acid around your appliances. When the ‘roach walks over it – the acid will stick to its body. Lethal to them, but safe (in moderation) for people and pets. You can also try dusts such as silica and diatomaceous earth, which drys out their waxy coating and kills them.

Are roaches attracted to microwaves?

Cockroaches want what most insects and other animals want: a warm place to live that is close to a good food source. Roaches also want a home that is dark, and microwaves happen to check off all those boxes. If you don’t regularly clean out your microwave, little bits of food can accumulate inside and attract roaches.
