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. Although you can easily get rid of these pests by using pesticides, the chemicals coming from the pesticides contain products that are unhealthy especially to your children. Since this is alarming to your family’s health, most of us want to know the methods that are not harmful to living things but can still prevent pests.
Ants are really a problem especially during summer. They can be found crawling alone or in group on your tables, cabinets, and even personal things. In order to prevent them from entering your home, you need to locate the ants’ point of entry. The moment you find the area of entry, you need to create a barrier immediately by simply spreading citrus oil, cayenne peppers or coffee grounds surrounding the spot. This way, ants will not try to pass over the items. But if they are already in your home, your other option to prevent them from spreading is to place garlic cloves, spearmint leaves o cucumber peels on the areas where they are found. The reason of this is that these items are actually known for being ant’s repellant. If you are done inside your home, the next is to control 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.
Another pest that can be found in your home and considered to be a repulsive pest is the cockroach and this pest should also have natural pest control remedy. One way to repel cockroaches is by placing a catnip to the area where you find cockroaches most frequently. To kill a population of these cockroaches, all you need to do is have a piece of bread soaked in beer and once it is soaked, place it where the cockroaches can reach it and once they eat it, they will die because they are unable to digest beer. 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.
Mosquitoes also have natural pest control. To prevent mosquitoes, remove their preferred habitat such as standing water in yards or in a basin. Another mosquito repellent is a solution that has at least 30 percent eucalyptus content and all you need to do is to apply it onto your skin.
