Your DIY Bug Repellent Guide to Common Household Pests
Contrary to popular belief, eliminating household pests from your home can be accomplished without completely bombing your living space with a mess of toxic fumes. Whether you have annoying fruit flies in the kitchen, fleas on your beloved pet or silverfish lurking around your bathroom, it is very likely that a DIY, non-toxic and super inexpensive solution exists for your household bug problem.
Take note: the best practice for pest control is prevention. Annoying bugs are there in the first place because you are doing something that makes your home an ideal hang-out spot.
Not surprisingly, cleanliness is a huge factor in keeping bugs away. Be especially vigilant in getting rid of food crumbs and excessive moisture, especially in the kitchen and in bathrooms. No food and no water puddles lying around in plain sight equals no free meals for wandering pests.
