I can’t stand bugs in my house! In the winter, I’m dealing with spiders, and in the summer, with ants. Nothing I do seems to keep my house insect-free for long, so I am definitely going to try this natural remedy!
To date, scientists have catalogued about 1.5 million species of organisms on the planet, with insects making up about two-thirds of this bounty, researchers report in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
Insects, can often be seen as an annoyance to humans, but they play a huge part in our world and 90% of all living things are insects, so they’re very important.
The most important role of insects is the one of helping organic matter to decompose. They are also the most important pollinizers of plants that are both ecologically and economically important.
All this aside, insects are not something you’d want to see anywhere near you, especially not in your home.
Here is a safe method of getting rid of insects and rodents. It’s nothing like the insecticides you buy over the counter, but it’s equally, if not more efficient.
This all-natural repellent will also make your home smell clean and fresh.
What you need is fresh mint, an aromatic plant that’s valued both for its medicinal properties and fresh-smelling fragrance.
How to use it?
The method of preparation couldn’t be simpler!
What you do is prepare a well-concentrated mint tea. Store this in a spray bottle then spray every corner of your house, particularly the door corners and the window rims. If there’s something insects can’t stand, it’s the smell of fresh mint. This natural bug repellent will keep all sorts of insects, as well as rodents, away from your house while providing your home with a fresh- smelling aroma.
