Repel Pests the Natural Way

An infestation of pests is always going to be an inconvenience. However, you can follow some simple steps to protect your home or business from certain pests, and do so naturally.

A few bags of peppermint tea, for example, can eliminate mice from your home or business.

How does this work? Peppermint repels mice because the smell of the herb irritates their noses and serves as an effective deterrent. Just take some used peppermint tea bags (we recommend placing at least four in every room where there is an infestation) and let them do their work. This method has been used for centuries and is so efficient that it could yield results in as little as 48 hours!

That is not all! There are even natural remedies for spiders.

Do you have an unwanted infestation of spiders? While arachnids can be helpful because they thin the population of other insects, an infestation can be a hassle and a hazard if there is a risk of one biting a pet or a member of your family. Once again, you can take an all-natural approach to solve the problem through strategic application of cinnamon or lemon oil. Using cinnamon oil or lemon oil will kill spider mites, and you can also sprinkle ground cinnamon around the exterior of your property to dissuade spiders from gaining entry.

In general, when it comes to safeguarding your home or business from unwanted pests, be proactive. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Maintain a clean kitchen and take out your trash regularly to remove food sources and aromas that might attract insects and rodents. For additional protection against mice, you can seal your home and clean out potential nesting. Be sure also to keep your house clean on a regular basis, and avoid letting clutter pile up, as mice and other unwanted pests like to burrow in these hard to reach areas.
