Everyone is afraid of something. Some are afraid of heights, others of depths and yet others of animals such as spiders and mice. Whether you are afraid of them or not, unfortunately we are often confronted with these animals and we prefer not to have them around, especially not as pets. So unfortunately many people are bothered by pests such as mice and spiders in their homes.
Due to the fact that professional pest control is often too expensive and you often have to wait a long time due to the high demand for such companies, people are looking for natural remedies to get rid of them. For mice, you can of course get a cat, but to buy one pet to get rid of another does not seem the best of solutions.
And what do you do about those scary spiders in the house? A cat only likes to play with them. Fortunately, I have found another solution. The household remedy in this article combats pests in a natural and effective way. All you need is a peppermint tea bag. You can see what to do below
This is what you should do:
Make a pot of peppermint tea. Then spread the tea bags around the house, especially the places where you are often bothered by spiders or mice. Within 2 to 3 days your house should be pest-free! For the best result I advise to put about 4 tea bags per place. You can achieve the same result with fragrance oils. Drop 10 to 15 drops into a spray can and spray it on the windowsills and other places where you have a lot of trouble with pests. Not only will it chase away the mice and spiders, but your house will smell nice and fresh too.
If you are not a tea drinker and do not want to buy it in the shop because you will not use it any more, there is another option. Instead of using peppermint tea or peppermint scented oil, you can also use toothpaste to get rid of these pests. What should you do here? Smear the toothpaste on the spot where you suspect they came from and before you know it they will be looking for another home.
Vermin such as mice, spiders but also wasps and mosquitoes are extremely sensitive to smell. We know, for example, that wasps react to sweet smells and mosquitoes find lemon extremely smelly. The same applies to this tip. That’s why, in addition to peppermint, you should also use scents such as clove, lavender, chamomile, chilli pepper and eucalyptus. Are you only bothered by spiders? Then use cinnamon and/or lemon oil instead of peppermint.
