Dust Mite Repellent
You can prepare your own repellent spray by combining Eucalyptus, Clove, and Peppermint, Lavender or Rosemary oil into a bottle filled with water. Allow the dust mite spray to dry in air for some time so that mites will be destroyed by the scent. For added pest control, combine lemongrass and basil to eliminate pests like fleas, lice and dust mites.
Garlic & Mint Insect Spray
To control outdoor pests, combine a mixture of garlic and mint in a spray bottle. Just take some garlic cloves and mint leaves and mix them using a food processor. Then add cayenne pepper as well as a little drop of washing liquid. Heat the mixture in a pan with water for some time and leave it aside overnight. The next morning, pour it into a spray bottle to use in order to make your gardens pest free.
Borax & Sugar Combination
Another significant trick involved in killing ants is possible with a homemade sugar and borax mixture. This combination must be poured along the line where ants are so that you can get rid of your pest problem completely. This solution is prepared by adding 1 cup hot water, ½ cup sugar & 2 tablespoon borax. It is the widely preferred combination because of its utmost effectiveness.
Hot Pepper Spray
To eliminate pests in your garden, you can mix 3 spoons of hot pepper flakes, 1 gallon of water or else use 10 finely chopped peppers. Heat the ingredients in pan for about 15 minutes then allow it to cool for 24 hours prior to straining. After that, add few drops of dishwashing soap solution and spray over the plants.
Coconut Oil and Vinegar
The mixture of white vinegar and coconut oil is considered to be an effective spraying solution for repelling spiders. Since this oil has a tendency to create stains or form spots you must be careful to use this mixture only on small areas of curtains, upholstered furniture or carpets.
Finely ground cinnamon power and its oil are considered to be highly effective against eliminating pests from your house. Try to sprinkle the finely ground cinnamon power everywhere around the pests or else apply the pure cinnamon oil on the needed places using a cotton swab.
Pests and critters do not like the smell of coffee powder — like some normal human beings. In fact, they have a hatred for that smell. For most ants, coffee grounds are considered to be highly fatal. You can get rid of pests in your house by placing recycled coffee grounds all over your house where bugs normally emerge.
