Getting rid of bugs can be quite a challenge to take on. When they decide that your house is where they are going to make their home, the frustration will make you consider evacuating at times.
But you do not have to pack up and leave your house to those filthy bugs. You can win the battle and eliminate them, or get them to evacuate.
Contaminating Your Food
Some nasty bugs will get into your food and contaminate it. They come straight out of the drain, then all over the dirty floor and right into your pantry. Ew! Even if they are not carrying diseases, they will have bacteria on them from all those places they have been.
You do not want them laying on your food either. Sometimes, when you see bugs on food, what they are actually doing is laying. Your body should be able to eliminate those eggs if you should, unfortunately, ingest them. But bug eggs aren’t so appetizing at all!
Destroying Your House
There are even types of bugs that will eat down your home. Like literally, they will eat down the structure of your house. This can cost a lot of money to do repairs, as you don’t want your house to come tumbling down on you.
Some of these bugs won’t only eat food or the structure of your house. There are those that will eat your clothes, books, furniture, and just about anything they find appetizing in your house.
Poisonous Bug Bites
What about those who are brazen enough to bite you, or try to eat you? Yikes! You just cannot have that happening in your home. Some of these biting bugs will poison you, or sometimes they will give you diseases and viruses.
Adding to all the distress they can cause, having bugs in your can be an embarrassment. Remember that time when you had visitors and that nasty roach decided to join the conversation? How awful that must have been!
But you do not have to allow these dirty little bugs to keep invading your house and have their way in it. You can get rid of them by using essential oils. This way, you do not have to use those bug sprays that may be poisonous to you, your family and pets.
Eliminating Bugs With Essential Oils
The best essential oils to get rid of bugs include tea tree oil, lemongrass oil, peppermint oil, and eucalyptus oil. You can use a combination of these oils, or just one. Add some water, and spray those bugs. If you do not have a direct shot at these bugs, spray the corners, doorways, window tracks, and any dark crevices you know they might hide. For a good mixture, use about 8 drops of essential oil with about 2 cups of water.
