Today, our Contributing Writer Kerri Z., presents some natural solutions for a bug-free home:

With the weather cooling down, bugs want to come inside for warmth.  I’m going to help you with some tips on how to assist in eliminating these from your home naturally with essential oils.

Ants

If you have an ant problem, try placing cotton balls with a few drops of Peppermint essential oil on them at the places where you think the ants are coming in, and along any trails they usually make through your house.  I’ve done this where my kitten food is and it works fantastic.  I also rubbed the oil along the baseboards where I thought they were coming in.

Spiders

To keep spiders and pests out of drawers and cabinets, put a few drops of Eucalyptus essential oil  on a cotton ball or paper towel, and place it at the back of the drawer.
You can also place along window sills and rub the oils along the bases to keep the scent fresh so that the spiders stay away from these areas.
