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.
It is a fact that during summer time, ants are just rampant. Ants are visible especially on your decks or tables and even your home cabinets. In order to prevent them from entering your home, you need to locate the ants’ point of entry. 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. 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. These products are actually ant repellant and they chase them out your home. If you are done inside your home, the next is to control the outdoor infestations. To manage the outdoor, you need to sprinkle cornmeal on the mouth of the ant hill so that this will attract the ants and share it immediately to their colony but the thing is ants cannot digest cornmeal and so they will die after a week or so.
Cockroaches are considered to be one of the most untidy pests around but you can still have natural pests control to them. You can use catnip to repel cockroaches by simply placing it in areas where cockroaches or abundant. Another way to eradicate a population of these cockroaches is by simply soaking a bread with beer and have it eaten by these pests since they cannot digest beer and they will just die on their own accord. You can also spray the cockroach with soapy water because soapy water is able to break the exoskeleton of the cockroach causing it to die within minutes.
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.
