Do It Yourself Pest Control:
While professionals may be needed for larger jobs or infestations, there are many Eco-friendly techniques you can use yourself to prevent pests. First and foremost, maintain a clean home. Wiping crumbs from counters, properly storing food, and regular vacuuming can stop a cockroach or ant invasion before it starts. Cleanliness is next to pest-free-ness!
Rats are a Homeowner’s Enemy Number One. They are the worst pest, with regards to carrying disease as well as destroying your home. Most ways to eliminate rats, however, are extremely toxic — not only to the rats, but to your family. Luckily, there are also many Eco-friendly approaches to a rat problem. Try spreading peppermint oil around your home, daubed on a rag or cotton swab. Rats hate the smell! Another excellent way to fight rats is to recruit some help: get a cat.
Proper landscaping can go a long way to ridding your yard of scorpions, and improving the look of your home. Clear dry brush, lumber, and other debris that may potentially shelter the pests. Also, reducing the moisture in your yard will reduce the attraction of your yard to a scorpion looking for a home.
Ants and Cockroaches:
Aside from a cleanly kitchen, there are several ways to fight these pests without the use of harmful chemicals. Ants have a natural aversion to cayenne pepper and cucumbers; cockroaches hate the smell of catnip. Placing bread soaked in beer in an old coffee can makes an effective cockroach trap. A simple spray of soapy water can kill or drive away either bug.
