Earth Friendly and Easy to Use
Natural solutions are great options when it comes to controlling pests. For one, these solutions are designed to protect the environment. In addition, they can target harmful pests while leaving harmless, helpful insects in your garden and around your home. Ingredients for natural pest control solutions can often be found at your local grocery store. For small infestations, try these natural remedies.
Natural Remedies for Different Pests
For ants try spraying them with soapy water. If this doesn’t solve the problem, peel a cucumber and leave the peels in their path. Ants don’t like the bitterness so this often deters them. Another trick is to leave mint tea bags in their wake for the same effect.
Roaches are averse to bitterness as well. This time, add some catnip and garlic to your cucumber peels for a custom roach deterrent at their place of entry. Their entry point will stand out because of the droppings they leave behind.
Fleas are no match for lemons. Cutting a lemon in half, scoring the rind, and pouring boiling water over it, can deter fleas. Also, adding a little garlic to your dog’s food and a bit of apple cider to your cat’s can make the meals less desirable to fleas.
Natural mosquito control in Atlanta can be very effective. To keep the mosquitoes from ruining your backyard parties, consider burning sage or rosemary to repel them. For an effective and beautiful solution, plant marigolds around your home. While adding some floral décor to your yard, these plants will provide a line of defense against mosquitoes.
