Can a egg crate be coatted ?


Recommended Posts

Everybody knows that roaches love egg crates but they must be changed from time to time.

Can a egg crate be somehow coatted with something so I can clean it with water ?

Like melting plastic with a heat gun that when solidified would adapt to the shape of the egg crate ?

Or melting a plastic with acetone over the egg crate ?

Or painting the egg crate with several layers of varnish ink ?

Any other sugestions ?

I am think on puting mouldable thermoplastic (a plastic that is mouldable during a few minutes after being on hot water) over the egg crate.

Sanding the plastic would make it easy to make roaches climb.

I'd think anything you use would have chems in it that are horrible for the roaches. Though roaches are pretty resilient ! There is a swap close to my house....a vendor sells the egg crates cheap as hell I am so lucky.
