Although no one likes them, insects are an inevitable part of our ecosystem. They vary in size and can feed on plants, meat or carrion. Some play an important role in wiping out other species and preventing epidemics.
One of their main roles is to break down and remove organic matter, and the other is to pollinate plants, which is of great economic and ecological importance. No matter how important they are to our planet, we still want to do everything we can to eradicate them from our homes.
Spiders are some of the most hated reptiles, but they are also the most common in our homes. Usually we try to fight them off with chemical repellents. While the second is not dangerous at all, the first can leave serious side effects on our health.
Fortunately, Mother Nature has sorted everything out. Many of us love mint, it smells fresh and tastes good too, but few people know that although we love mint, insects can’t stand it.
If you have spiders or cockroaches in your home, the best natural way to get rid of them is to drink fresh mint tea. Steep the tea as usual, let it cool and then put it in the evaporator. Spread it around your home and pay special attention to dark nooks and crannies in walls. Your house will smell great and you can say goodbye to the dreaded bad guys without harming your health!
