Small insects inside a home are real pests, as their name suggests. Usually we see them when we want to eat, and looking at a roach and still wanting to eat is impossible. Even worse is when we want to sleep. Usually a fly or something similar is buzzing around our head. There are many pesticides that can kill them. But they are not good for you nor for the environment. Luckily, there are many eco-friendly and completely natural ways to solve this big problem.
The biggest problem is with flies. If you open a door or a window in the summer, you will end up with a room full of flies. Now, there are some ways to eliminate them, except chasing them round a room. Flies have an aversion to bay leaves and mint. Tie several of these herbs into a cheesecloth and hang it near the doors. This will prevent flies from getting in. You can also use eucalyptus oil in order to make flies go away. Just pour a few drops in the areas where flies are.
Mosquitoes are another big problem. These bloodsuckers will make your day an agony. They are small, they don’t fly fast, but they have some ways to avoid our hands or newspaper. Also, there are many of them. One of the ways you can use to repel them is using a 1 part garlic juice and water. Mix them into a spray bottle. Spray this onto your skin, and problem is solved. Thai lemon grass and marigolds are also excellent ways to repel mosquitoes. You only need several drops.
