Try This to Repel Insects in Your House!
It is very important to always keep the household clean and free of unwanted pests. When the area is clean, pests are less likely to enter as they do not have places to hide or food to eat. Furthermore, a clean and pest-free household is more likely to be a happy and healthy one.
Yet, despite our best efforts, there will be times when household pests become a problem. Worse still, amongst us there are people who are not fans of bugs and rodents, perhaps even phobic. And as Buddhists, part of our practice is to refrain from killing pests as much as possible and instead try alternative methods such as prevention or catching and releasing where possible.
This article shares some absolutely easy and harmless ways to keep these unwanted “friends” at bay and stop them from visiting. Do read it; I think you will find it helpful.
If You Have This Plant in Your House, You Will Never See Mice, Spiders, and Other Insects Again!
#1: Are You Tired Of Bugs?
Bugs are not cool. I mean it. Insects are the most numerous species on Earth. In fact, there are over 200 million insects living on our planet right now. Some have wings, antennas, ugly extremities. But, whether you like them or not, they’re necessary for maintaining the natural cycle of nature. They pollinize plants, and help organic matter decompose.
So how can we get rid of them without killing them?
#2: We Know Their Secret
Ha! Gotcha, you ugly bug!
Spiders and many other insects hate the smell of mint!
Mice… well, you may like mice, but certainly not when they’re a pest. And they don’t like mint either!
So, you can get rid of them without actually harming them, isn’t that good news? Prepare a well-concentrated mint tea. Store it in a spray bottle then spray every corner of your house, particularly the door corners and the window rims. Insects just can’t stand the smell. So now you can naturally keep bugs and rodents away, and have a wonderful minty aroma at home. Isn’t that nice?
