Keeping ants out of the house may seem impossible but not anymore. Here are some interesting ways to keep them at bay –
Soapy water – spray it on the point of entry.
Mint Leaves – sprinkle some around the points of entry.
Cucumber peels or slices – place at the point of entry. The ants have an aversion for cucumber and will move away from it.
Citrus Oil– Spray it around the ant nest. The ants will leave and go away.
Cayenne Pepper– sprinkling peppers around the ant hole will make the ants abandon the nest.
Cockroaches thrive on dirt and crumbs. The best way to keep them out of your house it to maintain top class hygiene. If you still get cockroaches then here is what you can do:
Diatomaceous Earth – sprinkle this around the kitchen and places where the roaches are seen most often. The tiny particles are harmful to the cockroaches and kill them
Soap Spray – use soap solution to get rid of cockroaches. The earth gets into their exoskeleton eventually killing the cockroach.
Beer Trap – Roaches love beer. So, take a plastic bottle, cut it in half and invert the top half over the bottom half in such a way as it forms a sort of a funnel leading inwards. Fill the bottom with beer and leave it in a place where the cockroaches are most evident. The cockroaches will crawl inside the funnel for the beer and will get trapped inside as they will not be able to get out.
Catnip – is a natural deterrent for cockroaches. Place a few leaves around the areas where you do not want the roaches. Or prepare a decoction from the leaves and spray it around the crevices and cracks in the walls where cockroaches live.
If you have pets at home it is highly likely that you may have an infestation of fleas sometime or the other. Flea bites can be extremely uncomfortable and can get infected. Getting rid of fleas can be quite tricky. Here are some non-toxic ways to deal with it.
Bath – Bathe and comb your pet regularly. Use a flea treatment so they do not get infested again. Use a citrus infusion to bathe your dogs, do not use it on cats. Citrus is a natural flea repellant.
Garlic and Yeast– Cook garlic and add it to your dog’s food along with brewer’s yeast. This too helps to keep the fleas away.
Vacuum – all rugs and soft furnishings should be vacuumed regularly till you are sure that all the fleas are gone. Place some flea powder in the vacuum bag and always empty it outside away from the house.
