Summer is a wonderful time for spending time outdoors and enjoying fresh fruits and vegetables. Summer also brings with it unwanted pests. Here are some solutions.
* For fruit flies, fill a bowl with 2 C water, 2 T white vinegar, 2 T sugar, and a few drops of liquid dish soap. Leave out, and soon fruit flies will be gone. It’s non-toxic and odor-free too!
* To keep crawling insects away: place bay leaves in the kitchen drawers and flour or sugar containers.
* Vitamin B supplements taken throughout the season will repel mosquitos. (Check with your doctor first before taking any supplement)
* Sprinkle cayenne pepper in areas where you’ve seen bugs enter your home. Deadly to insects, non-toxic to pets and children.
