-Add some peppermint oil to your cleaning solution and mop your floor with it to wipe away ant trails.
-Lemon basil and cinnamon basil can effectively repel the Anopheles gambiae complex, a group of mosquito species known to carry malaria.
-Lavender scent can protect your home, pets, and other plants from being infested by bugs.
-According to research, nepetalactone, the essential oil in catnip that your kitty loves so much, acts as an irritant against these common household pests.
-Rosemary is commonly used in cooking and has medicinal properties. It also attracts butterflies but deters flies and mosquitoes.
-Apply a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil to some cotton balls and put them in areas where you often find spiders.
-Mix baking soda with sugar, and place a bowl of water near it. This lethal trio creates a chemical reaction inside the roaches’ stomach, which, let’s just say, won’t end well for the little buggers.
-Marigold contains pyrethrum, a compound that’s commonly found in commercial bug sprays.
-Put original scented dryer sheets in these places to keep mice out.
-Protect yourself and your family by setting traps with peanut butter for mice and rats.
-Mouse-proof your house by placing sheets of aluminum foil in their hideouts.
-Try ultrasonic repellents if you’re willing to spend the money. These things emit high-frequency sounds that are only sensitive to a mouse’s ears.
-Borax is used as a cleansing agent and in glass-making. It can also kill ants, roaches, termites, spiders, and even mold.
-Use steel wool or copper mesh to mouse-proof your house and seal the deal with caulking.
-If you need to keep wild animals out of your garden, cayenne pepper is a perfectly safe way to keep them at bay. Sprinkle it on the topsoil to keep rabbits and squirrels from munching on your fresh veggies.
-Burning neem leaves gives about 76% mosquito protection for up to two hours. You can also heat the leaves up for 25% protection.
-Another plant that’s proven to fend off mosquitoes is lemon thyme. Smash it and apply it to your skin after running a test on a small area.

    I dunno, mint grows pretty rampant around my house, same with basil, doesn’t preclude the mice to run through it as they please.

  26. Ellie Mae on October 27, 2021 at 9:51 am

    I know I’ve used sugar and instant potatoes mixed together for ant control. Spread it around the outside of the house and boom, no more ants coming in. I used borax in the past and it also worked but I got worried about run off into the streams down the mountain so I switched to sugar and instant potatoes and it worked just as well without the chemicals

  27. LK Reinmiller on October 27, 2021 at 9:53 am

    Spiders I can deal with. It’s skunks that are the worst.

  32. lez orford on October 27, 2021 at 9:58 am

    @BRIGHT SIDE-I just want to say that, while I appreciated getting more info than I expected about repelling pests naturally, the title of this video is deceptive…making it look like there was a single plant that could do all of this! In fact, a title change (like: "17 Natural Pest Repellents"), could actually create even more interest! Just sayin’…Thx for encouraging non-toxic solutions ☺️🌿

  33. Boss Jungle on October 27, 2021 at 9:59 am

    Boring – get to plant as advertised

  34. Ysela Yonak on October 27, 2021 at 10:01 am

    The best mosquito repellent is Avon’s Skin So Soft Original lotion. Every time I use it I don’t get bit! It’s awesome and it’s very inexpensive

  36. Schallb on October 27, 2021 at 10:02 am

    a little white sugar (1/2 teaspoon) mixed in with 20 mule team borax laundry ( 1 to 2 teaspoons ).. put in a bottle cap or small jar lid around property . The ants smell that sugar and come a running. They carry off both granules , because they look alike , to the nest and before 2 weeks are up you won’t see any ants. live traps for mice and chipmunks work the best for me , , I take them for a 3/5 mile ride and let them lose , usual in a open field.

    I have rosemary plants (which I like to add to my dishes) in my greenhouse but still have a lot of mosquitos. So when one tells a lie, how can you believe all the others. This article of remedies cannot be trusted.

    I have plenty of mint plants around my house, the other day I saw a mouse playing in the mint bush.

  47. NYC Camper on October 27, 2021 at 10:19 am

    If I put catnip down, I’ll repel spiders but then I’ll have all the cats 🐈 in the neighborhood 🤣.

  48. Brooke Lynne on October 27, 2021 at 10:23 am

    The best thing that kept the mice away was our beloved cat, Blizzard. When mice got a whiff of him being in the home, we haven’t seen a mouse for 12 years. When he died we still didnt see a mouse for a couple of years after but then they started to return. Peanut butter on a sticky helped us this time.

  49. The Beatbox guy on October 27, 2021 at 10:24 am

    Imagine the life of these insects with these repellents
