Natural insect pest control: 7 hacks for a healthier home

Sick of flies buzzing around your cookout table or ants creeping across your countertop? You could get one of the excellent pest control specialists from Rapidfy to help out or do it yourself with these 7 amazing natural insect pest control hacks.

Make a mosquito repellent bracelet

Imagine shooing away mosquitos and looking cute while you do it! All you need is this simple DIY bug-repelling bracelet and you’re ready to stay out late under the stars without bringing home a bite! Get a bracelet that is made of absorbent material like leather or fabric and drip a few drips of Citronella Essential Oils in various places. You are good to go!

Bring ladybugs into your garden

Aphids are a ladybug’s favorite treat, so if you’ve got an infestation of those tiny pests bringing down your garden, grab a container of ladybugs from your local nursery to set loose in your flower beds.

Sprinkle grits around ant infested areas

Whether in your garden or in your home, ants are tough to deter, but this simple grocery store item can keep them far away. Just pick up a bag of grits to sprinkle your way to an ant-free life.

Plant greenery that mosquitos hate

Did you know that there are some plants that mosquitoes just can’t stand? Arrange this aromatic collection of peppermint, lemongrass, and more, and say goodbye to those pesky biters.

Spread eggshells under your flowerbeds

If you’re trying to keep your plants safe from snails and slugs, just use your breakfast leftovers! Crushed eggshells are a natural, safe, and totally free way to de-bug your flowerbeds.

Scare off flies with pennies and water

You may have heard the stories, but try it for yourself and you’ll see - filling cups with water and pennies will scare flies away from your outdoor areas! Just place the cups around your picnic table, and watch the flies flee.

Fight off indoor ants with essential oils

Get rid of ants and refresh your home all at once with this simple 3-ingredient spray. Ants can’t stand these essential oils but lucky for you, a light spray will leave your home aromatic and bug-free. You will need a small spray bottle filled about 3/4 full with distilled water to begin with, add two tablespoons of witch hazel to the spray bottle, finally add 12 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil. Shake it up. Spray it around the insides of your doors and windows, and wherever else you think ants are getting in. The ants and other insects will stay away too…even spiders!
