10 Ways to Get Rid of Insects and Bugs in Your Home

BRIGHT SIDE

In case you want to get rid of bugs and insects in your house and make your home pest-free without using stinking pesticides, there’s a solution just for you. To protect yourself and your family, follow some simple tips and use natural alternatives that are cheap yet super effective.
First of all, you should know that pesticides can indeed cause a lot of harm to your health. Recent research conducted by a multi-university Toronto team shows that these chemicals can be linked to many serious health issues. Cancer, reproductive problems, diseases of the nervous system, Parkinson’s disease, lymphoma, asthma, and many more dangerous and fatal illnesses can be caused by pesticides people are exposed to in their homes and gardens. That’s why it’s so important to find a natural alternative to all these chemical substances.
Roaches usually come out for food and water, so you have a good chance of never seeing them again if there’s nothing for them to eat.
Use an essential oil candle or a diffuser to keep nasty blood-sucking mosquitoes away from you. If you have difficulties finding a candle with these particular essential oils, you can make it on your own.
To fight off flies, leave a sponge saturated with lavender oil in the house or make a spray with lavender oil by adding approximately 30 drops of lavender essential oil into a small spray bottle with water. Remember to avoid any skin contact with undiluted essential oil. Some other options that will help you to get rid of those annoying insects include planting basil or other herbs with a strong smell in pots on your windowsill.
Carpenter bees are pollinators and essential for any wild flora. If you’ve got a bee nest in your household, it might be a good idea to contact a local beekeeper who will be incredibly happy to remove them from your place instead of killing them.
Prevention is always the easiest way to get rid of bugs. Wasps are very territorial, so fake decorative wasp nests placed around your house will most likely solve the problem before it even begins.
Spiders detest orange peels, the smell of peppermint essential oil, turmeric, eucalyptus, cinnamon, and onion. If you are a frequent traveler, it might be a good idea to carry eucalyptus oil in your bag. Place a few drops of oil on a tissue and wipe down the mattress in your hotel room just in case you come across any bedbugs.
