During summer, you cannot deny the fact that ants are just everywhere. You can see them on your tables, cabinets, and just anywhere in your home. In order to prevent them from entering your home, you need to locate the ants’ point of entry.

The reason is that ants will not be able to pass through these items. But if they already infested your home, all you need to do is place cucumber peels, spearmint leaves or garlic cloves in the cabinets. The reason of this is that these items are actually known for being ant’s repellant. If you are done inside your home, the next is to control the outdoor infestations. You can actually sprinkle cornmeal around the ant hill entrance and this will allow the ants to share the cornmeal to their colony but because ants are unable to digest cornmeal, they will die eventually.
Another type of pest this is somehow considered to be the one of the most annoying ones are cockroaches and they, too, have natural pest control remedy.

To kill a population of these cockroaches, all you need to do is have a piece of bread soaked in beer and once it is soaked, place it where the cockroaches can reach it and once they eat it, they will die because they are unable to digest beer. Another way to kill a cockroach is by spraying with soapy water because in just minutes the cockroach will die due to broken exoskeleton.
