I dislike pesky flies. They are so annoying. Mosquitoes too, they are all blood-sucking pests that dont’ need mercy.
Most people would quickly reach out for the chemical-laden insect repellent that stinks. These stuff are poisonous otherwise it wouldn’t kill. You wouldn’t like the smell, do you? ;)
Anyway, I tend to keep those pests at bay with Mother Nature’s help – with absolutely NO chemicals nasties ! Here are some tips…
1. Repel flies with herbs
To keep flies away, put out bowls of fresh orange and lemon peels mixed with cloves powder. Flies also dislike the scent of lavender, eucalyptus or cedar.
Use one or a combination of these essential oils in an aromatherapy diffuser or cotton balls placed around the room. Or add a few drops of essential oil to small bowls of hot water to help dispersing the scent throughout the room.
2. Ant Control
Mix 7.5g of dried organic peppermint leaves, 35g of organic cayenne powder and 30g of baking soda. Sprinkle the mixture liberally around the area where ants are entering your home.
3. Repel cockroaches with essential oils
Cockroaches don’t like the scent of eucalyptus or rosemary essential oils. Place a few drops of essential oil on cotton balls and put in areas where you have seen cockroaches. Renew the essential oil every couple of days to keep the scent strong.
