We’ve all seen bugs around our home and business and truth be told, you haven’t seen half of them! There are about 100 different types of critters in your house as we speak. But don’t fret, chances are those bugs have been around for a while and haven’t caused any harm to you or your property. However, it’s when you start to notice these pests that it’s time to intervene, especially before they multiply. Pesticides are made up of harmful chemicals that could be dangerous to you, your family, children, and pets. Seaside Pest Control has compiled a list of six at-home remedies that you most likely already have on hand to get rid of these pests naturally.
It’s not just tough on grease, it’s tough on ants too! Mix water and soap in a bottle and spray away your ant problem. They tend to make their way into the kitchen because of all the delicious food but that leads to contamination and potential damage to your property.
Ants don’t like lemon either nor do cockroaches, flies, or spiders. Combine lemon juice and water in a spray bottle and do your worst. You can also leave lemon wedges around spots you’ve seen the critters. Cockroaches especially can turn into an infestation, fast.
Baking soda kills bed bugs by removing the moisture from their bodies. Sprinkle baking soda where you have the bugs, clean it up, and add powder every few days. Repeat until your problem is solved.
Salt is a pest killer. It works on many bugs including ants, roaches, and fleas. It works the same way baking soda does on cockroaches, by drying them out. The fleas can be brought in from pets and stay in your surroundings. Mix salt and water in a spray bottle or leave the salt out by itself in problem areas.
Basil fresh and dry deters flies and mosquitoes. They don’t like the smell. Keep basil plants in the home, rub them on your skin, and even rub them around your entranceways to keep bugs out.
Now, this is a pesticide, but it is an all-natural pesticide with its ingredients coming from the seeds of the neem tree. This nontoxic pesticide kills moths, termites, and everything in between. Mix with water and spray in problem areas. The results will be seen immediately.
