Tips to Eradicate pests in your Home without using Harmful Substance
One of the problems encountered by households during house parties is that pests such as cockroaches might appear anytime. The fastest ways to get rid of these pests is simply spraying them with pesticides but doing so will actually cause harm to your health and your family’s health due to the chemical content of the pesticides. You cannot deny the fact that this is actually an alarming scenario that is why people are already looking for alternative means to control pests the natural way.
During summer, you cannot deny the fact that ants are just everywhere. They can be found crawling alone or in group on your tables, cabinets, and even personal things. One way to prevent the ants from entering your home is to make sure you have located their entrance. The moment you find the area of entry, you need to create a barrier immediately by simply spreading citrus oil, cayenne peppers or coffee grounds surrounding the spot. The reason is that ants will not be able to pass through these items. But if they are already in your home, your other option to prevent them from spreading is to place garlic cloves, spearmint leaves o cucumber peels on the areas where they are found. The need to place these items is due to the fact that they are ants repellant. Once you have control over the ants inside your home, you can now focus on the outdoor infestations. You can actually sprinkle cornmeal around the ant hill entrance and this will allow the ants to share the cornmeal to their colony but because ants are unable to digest cornmeal, they will die eventually.

You can also spray the cockroach with soapy water because soapy water is able to break the exoskeleton of the cockroach causing it to die within minutes.
