Before you start calling for a special company and before spraying toxic chemicals around your house, consider DIY pest remedies that will prevent appearance of these horrible critters.
Use coffee grounds to fight ants! Coffee grounds are considered to a natural ant repellent. If you put some coffee grounds near windows and doors you will never have ants at the house.
Fighting fruit fly
In order to get rid of fruit flies use apple cider vinegar by filling a glass container with 1-2 inches of apple cider vinegar. Close it and poke the holes in the container. Fruit flies will be lured by sweet scent and will drown in the cider. After some time don’t forget to change the container.
In order to get rid of rats mix one tablespoon of peppermint castile soap with half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper and eight cups of water, and then spray the mixture on the baseboards.
If you want to get rid of roaches, mix 2 tablespoons of very hot sauce with 1 quart of water, and then spray on the surfaces.
If you want to get rid of termites and carpenter ants, combine 1 tablespoon of boric acid, 3 tablespoons of canned cat food and 4 tablespoons of grape jelly. Put some of this mixture in the areas where you think the insects are nesting. But be careful as your pets can eat this “food”.
Fighting bed bugs
To fight bed bugs, we recommend combining 1 teaspoon of peppermint oil and 1 teaspoon of rosemary oil with 2 cups of water, then spray the mixture on the mattress and floor near the bed.
To get rid of silverfish, sprinkle some of boric acid in bathrooms, under sinks and in laundry, everywhere where moisture is present.
