Tips & Tricks

HERE ARE SOME USEFUL PEST CONTROL TIPS THAT ARE HANDY TO KNOW ABOUT AND EASY TO IMPLEMENT

 

  • Basil repels flies and mosquitoes.
  • Use half vanilla (pure vanilla) and half water for a mosquito and tick repellent.
  • Dab lavender oil on your pulse points; it smells great on you but repels insects.
  • Buy a mesh/net laundry bag that you would use for washing nylons and 5 boxes of moth balls. Put the moth balls in the bag and hang it in your garage near the door to get rid of mice, birds, and bugs.
  • To prevent mice from gaining entry to your garage, stop up any openings with steel wood pads. Mice will not chew through them.
  • Place bay leaves in kitchen drawers and in flour and sugar containers to keep crawling insects away.
  • Slugs and snails can be killed by pouring salt on them.
