Just thinking about bugs can make almost anybody squirm, but to have them in your home, that’s a whole different story. Nobody likes these annoying pests in their home, and there is a way to get rid of them easily and naturally. Here are some of the best techniques to get them out and keep them out the natural way.
Rid your home of flies with basil
Not only can you get rid of annoying flies with basil, but you can guarantee you and your family will always have fresh basil on hand. Simply put several basil plants all around your kitchen. Since flies hate basil, they will be sure to keep away. The bonus to this is that your kitchen will always be filled with the scent of summer; it’s a win-win situation.
Rid your home of ants with vinegar
Using vinegar to rid your home of ants is not only a safe and natural way to go; it is also the least expensive way. No need to spend a ton of money on more expensive insecticides. Just get a clean spray bottle and fill it with 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water.
Then all you need to do is spray the solution anywhere that you see ants, paying particular attention to areas such as baseboards, kitchen counters and floors, and in bathrooms that tend to be humid. The vinegar costs a lot less than insecticides and it is safe and harmless.
Rid your home of roaches with boric acid
Many of the roach powders on the market today can get pretty expensive, and they can be toxic. A more natural, safe alternative is to use borax acid. Borax acid is used in laundry as a whitener and is very lethal to roaches.
To make a mixture to kill off any roaches in your home just mix equal parts of flour and borax acid, and then sprinkle the mixture where you have seen roaches. Pay particular attention to areas such as the basement walls and any baseboards of outdoor entryways.
This mixture works well because the starch in the flour attracts the roaches and it will stick to their legs. They then track the deadly mixture to their hiding places where it will kill them and all the other roaches as well.
These are some of the easiest and most natural ways to rid your home of bugs. Try some of these techniques today and save time and money.
