Laxmanrekha is one of the most popular cockroaches and insect repellant products in India. It works wonderfully and the most selling product in its category.
I have used it for many years and it has never disappointed me. The reason is the result, which is more than what it claims. For example, I use The Original Laxmanrekha for Cockroaches. As the name indicates, it is meant to keep away cockroaches. However, it does more than that. It keeps off insects, lizards and ants. Last month when my kitchen was sort of attacked by red ants, Laxmanrekha came to my rescue.
How to use Laxmanrekha
It is quite easy to use and anyone can handle it effectively. You are just required to draw a line around the area where you want cockroaches and insects not come. For example, draw parallel lines around sink and there won’t be any cockroaches.
If the floor is of smooth titles, you may need to wet the tip of Laxmanrekha and then draw the line.
It is always better to draw the line in the night. You can wash the area in the morning. There won’t be any cockroaches or insects for the next 24 hours.
The biggest problem with Laxmanrekha is its ingredient. It is actually made of Cypermethrin.
As you might know, Cypermethrin is nothing but an insecticide. It is widely used in agricultural practices to keep off harvest harming insects. It is also used for domestic purposes, like Laxmanrekha.
It works as neurotoxic for insects.
Cypermethrin is also mildly toxic for human. Even skin contact can lead to problems to some people and ingestion can definitely be problematic.
Side Effects of Laxmanrekha
As mentioned above, there might be some problem of using Laxmanrekha. If taken inside mouth it can cause nausea, muscle weakness, headache, shortness of breath and salivation, among others.
There is no denying that Laxmanrekha can be dangerous if taken by mouth. In this condition, it becomes highly important to keep it away from the reach of children. In no case, you should keep it where a child can reach.
