Although no one likes them, insects are an essential part of our ecosystem. They vary in size and can feed on plants, meat, and carrion. Some play an important role in killing off other species and preventing epidemics.
One of their main functions is to break down and destroy organic matter, and the other is to pollinate economically and ecologically important plants. No matter how important they are to our planet, we want to do everything we can to eliminate them from our family.
Spiders are one of the most hated reptiles, but they are the most common in our homes. Usually we try to fight them with chemical repellants. The second is not dangerous at all, but the first can have serious negative consequences for our health.
Fortunately, Mother Nature took care of everything. Many of us love peppermint, it has a refreshing smell and tastes great, but we don’t know that while we love peppermint, insects can’t stand it.
If you have spiders or cockroaches in your home, the best natural way to get rid of them is with fresh mint tea. Brew the tea as usual, let it cool, then pour it into a spray bottle. Spray it around your house, paying special attention to dark corners and crevices in walls. Your house will smell amazing, and you’ll say goodbye to nasty crawlers without harming your health!
