dealing with unwelcome guests (insects)

There are also many natural repellents that you can place around your home to prevent ants from coming in. If ants are coming in the cracks of doors and windows, put a cinnamon stick, coffee grinds, chili pepper, paprika, cloves, or dried peppermint leaves near the openings. You can also squeeze the juice of a lemon at the entry spot and leave the peel there. Planting mint around the foundation of the house will also keep ants away. Place cloves of garlic around indoor and outdoor ant pathways.

    my mother sprinkles turmeric powder around the house like a lakshman rekha – lo and behold, the ants move on to next house 🙂

    Termites are given a ritual kerosene bath to make them come out of thier new houses and disposed off carefully.

    Honey bees are another dimension. they keep coming back despite you removing thier house inside our house!
