I have posted this before, but with this terrible pandemic going on, you certainly shouldn’t be exposed to pesticides, which can compromise your immune system. There are many safe and effective ways to control pests.
You can do your own pest control. You can kill any bug in your house with a mixture of water (40%), alcohol (40%) and dish soap (20%). No need to ever use pesticides inside your home or business.
If you have a specific pest, here are some recommendations
Cockroaches (beer and duct tape)
Ants (Terro Bait works for most small ants)
Silverfish (baby food jars and flour)
Paper wasps (brown paper bags, Avon Skin so Soft)
Bed bugs (alcohol, water & dish soap, hair dryer)
Head lice (salt water, hair dryer)
Fungus gnats (aquarium gravel)
Fruit flies (vinegar)
Carpet beetles (dirty socks and cheese)
Spiders (peppermint essential oil)
Mice (snap traps baited with a piece of Slim Jim)
Never use rodenticides or glue boards for mice
Here is a recipe for a very good mosquito repellent that you can make yourself.
Combine in a 16 oz. bottle:
15 drops lavender oil
3-4 Tbsp. of vanilla extract
1/4 Cup lemon juice.
Fill bottle with water. Shake. Ready to use.
is no reason to spray pesticides in or around your home in most circumstances. I also have relevant handbooks I can send you. If you want more information on the issues mentioned above or you have any pest questions, you can email me at askthebugman20132gmail.com.
