DIY Pest Away

by Katie Bock

Bugs, rodents…Pests.  We have all come encounter with some kind of pest once or twice.  I hate to use harmful chemicals in my home, around little ones and even myself.  I have found two fabulous ways to keep the Pest away and this includes Stink Bugs!

DIY Option One

Make a spray.  25 drops of Lemongrass and 25 drops of Peppermint in a 2 oz Glass Spray Bottle and fill the rest with water.  Shake before each use and spray areas in your home bugs and/or rodents tend to enter like windows doorways etc. 

DIY Option Two

Place a couple drops of Lemongrass and a couple drops of Peppermint on a tissue or cotton ball.  Then place in window, doorway, or a hole in the wall.  Wherever you are having issues.   

My Experience

  • We have an issue with stink bugs in our house. They seem to enter the little guy’s room all too often.  So most days we place a cotton ball or tissue with the Lemongrass and Peppermint on it in his window to keep the Stink Bugs away.  This has worked for us so far.  We still have an occasional stink bug enter, for the most part they stay away from the Lemongrass and Peppermint.
  • I found some mouse droppings on the carpet. Not Fun!  I found where the mice must have been entering and stuffed in with cottons covered in Lemongrass and Peppermint.

I have to say I am not sure what I would have done without being able to use the Lemongrass and Peppermint.  It has defiantly been a huge help for getting rid of Bugs and rodents safely.
