Home Remedy for Pest Control without Using Harmful Chemicals
One of the worst experiences that you may experience when you held a party inside your home is the fact that there might be cockroaches or fleas that will appear in your dining area. The fastest ways to get rid of these pests is simply spraying them with pesticides but doing so will actually cause harm to your health and your family’s health due to the chemical content of the pesticides. Because of the negative side of pesticides, people are already looking for alternative ways to get rid of pests or control them the natural way.
During summer, you cannot deny the fact that ants are just everywhere. Ants are visible especially on your decks or tables and even your home cabinets. For you to prevent their widespread, you need to find out where they came from or their entrance. If you already found the spot, the next thing to do is to spread cayenne peppers, coffee grounds or citrus oil to the area to serve as your barrier. The reason is that ants will not be able to pass through these items. But if they have already entered your home premises, you need to place spearmint leaves, garlic cloves or cucumber peels on the cabinet or tables. The need to place these items is due to the fact that they are ants repellant. Once you have control over the ants inside your home, you can now focus on the outdoor infestations. To manage the outdoor infestation, ant hills’ entrance must be sprinkled with cornmeal so that the ants will eat them and then they will die after a week because they cannot actually digest the cornmeal.
Cockroaches are considered to be one of the most untidy pests around but you can still have natural pests control to them. One way to repel cockroaches is by placing a catnip to the area where you find cockroaches most frequently. If you see an existing population and you want to terminate them, all you need to do is to soak a piece of bread with beet and keep it exposed to cockroaches since they cannot digest beer and they will die eventually. Soapy water can also kill cockroaches so you need to have it at all times and then spray directly to the cockroach since they will die in minutes because their exoskeleton is broken down.
You can also apply natural pest control with mosquitoes. To prevent mosquitoes, remove their preferred habitat such as standing water in yards or in a basin. If you want to go outside, you can actually repel mosquitoes by rubbing a solution to your skin that has at least thirty percent eucalyptus content.
