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. 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.
Ants are really a problem especially during summer. Ants are visible especially on your decks or tables and even your home cabinets. One way to prevent the ants from entering your home is to make sure you have located their entrance. 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. 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.
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. You can use catnip to repel cockroaches by simply placing it in areas where cockroaches or abundant. 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.
There is also natural pest control for 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.
