Putting Pests to the Test
Your home is your haven, your castle – the place where you live, breathe,
create and play. The last thing you want are for pests to make themselves
If you’ve noticed that you just have a small problem, a little online research
will provide you with a number of suggestions on how to prevent pests. You
might even find some of the ingredients in your cupboard. Here are some
- Plant peppermint, bay leaves and/or hot pepper in your garden to keep rodents away.
- If ants are your problem, it’s been said lemon juice, cinnamon, peppermint and/or boiling water with dish soap can help.
Home remedies aren’t your thing? You can also try some sprays, traps and
powders. A visit to your local hardware store will show you that there are
plenty of options you can explore. Just be sure to read the directions to
ensure the treatment fits your home.
In case pests continue to be a problem, it’s always best to get a professional involved.
