How to get rid of Mosquitoes, Dog ticks, Pantry Moths and Ants in a safe. natural way
- MOSQUITOES: Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus is an effective, natural mosquito repellent. Look for products containing this oil at places like Walmart and Target. Safe for kids and parents.
- DOG TICKS: Prevention is the key here. Put one drop of Rose Geranium Oil between your dog's shoulder blades and one at the top of the base of the tail and/or 2 drops directly on the collar.
- PANTRY MOTHS: Wipe flood containers and shelves with white vinegar and then place bay leaves inside the canisters and cupboard. It will not flavor anything in the containers.
- ANTS: Vinegar is very effective at deterring ants from entering your home by over powering the scent they would use to follow other ants' footsteps. Mix a solution of 50/50 white vinegar and water in a spray bottle and spray in places that are likely to attract ants, things like pet bowls (once the vinegar dries it won't bother your pet) and other food sources.
