Home Bug

Despite the fact that there are a lot of chemicals and products sold on the market, still they are difficult to get rid of.

So if don’t want to spend a lot of money on products that only address this issue shortly, then it is better to try using more natural ways to get rid of these insects.

Following that, here are 7 effective, natural and easy ways to get rid of bugs and insects, once and for all:

Lavender, Rosemary & Eucalyptus

In order to achieve great results from these plants, you can use them fresh and in a form of oil. But because sometimes it is difficult to find them fresh, you can try this mixture with essential oil.

Combine a few drops of each of the three oils and add some water. When you mix everything, spray it around the house and especially in the sleeping areas.

Peppermint Oil

Bugs are intolerable to peppermint oil, so if you use it, they will keep a distance. To create a perfect solution, mix 8 drops of peppermint oil and a little water.

You should spray the liquid around the house and especially in the corners. If you want to have stronger effects increase the dose of peppermint oil in the mix. Also adding vinegar to this mix can cause even bigger results.

Cayenne Pepper

The odor of cayenne pepper is something that bugs can’t stand. So if you sprinkle some of that combined with water or vinegar you can say goodbye to bugs forever.

You don’t have to spray it all around the house, but use it mostly in the affected areas.

Baking Soda

Baking Soda is one of the best and most effective natural ways to get rid of the bugs in your house. Because it absorbs the moisture from their organisms, it is considered as a natural bug killer.

If you want to try this technique, just place baking soda around the house and mostly on the corners and cracks of the floor. Leave it like that for a few days and then just vacuum it. Repeat this process at least one more time.


As we already mentioned before, vinegar can be really effective in the fight against insects and bugs. The best way to use it is in combination with water.

Add one part vinegar with two parts of water. Then put the mix in a spray bottle and spray it around the house.

Silica Gel

In case you ever wondered how you can use the silica gel from your shoe box, now you have the answer. Unbelievably, but it is really very effective against bugs and insects.

You can place it anywhere in your bedroom and the bugs will get stuck on it and die. So next time when you buy a new shoes and want to toss this little silica gel package, you better think twice!

Mint Leaves

The same as peppermint oil, bugs cannot tolerate mint leaves either. Take a few mint leaves and spread them around the corners of your house and even in your bed. They can also be used against moths on your clothes.
