Every now and then we have tiny or sometimes a little bit bigger, six-legged or eight-legged creatures invading our homes. They seek primarily food, shelter or both. To control pests, the best way is not to invite them inside in the first place. Keeping your home clean and storing food in containers will help. Yet, sometimes we still face bugs showing up in our house.
Of course there are plenty of conventional products out there that can give a quick and effective solution to the problem. However those chemicals are full of harmful and dangerous substances and would not be a clever solution for those with kids. A natural bug spray can be made inexpensively and naturally at home. Here is ten natural ways to keep those annoying mosquitoes, flies, ants or cockroaches away.
