5 Organic Ways to Control Pests

Pests are a problem in many homes. Here are five safe ways to keep your home varmint free:

  1. Ants: Mix one-quarter cup of water with one-quarter cup of white vinegar in a spray bottle. Add 30 drops of an essential oil – like tea tree or peppermint – and spray.
  1. Cockroaches: Mix two cups of water with two tablespoons of tea tree oil and spray.
  1. Spiders: Mix 30 drops of peppermint essential oil with one cup of water. Spray weekly on doors and windows.
  1. Fruit flies: Place a cup filled with water and red wine vinegar on your counter. Roll a piece of paper into a funnel and tape it in place so the tip of the funnel sits above the water. Give it a few days to collect flies.
  1. Mosquitos: Place lavender, catnip or basil around the entrances to your home.
