Eco Monday: pests

It seems like as Spring is arriving (someplaces earlier than others), there are a lot of pests that arrive with it. Roaches and ants seem to come out to play as the winter starts to melt and there is a suggestion of warmer weather. You can keep these pests away using natural ingredients you probably already have in your home. Borax (20 Mule Team Borax can be found in your groceries laundry aisle in a green box), ground cinnamon and chili pepper can be combined and put in a shaker jar to use when theses pests show up. Investigate where they pest seem to be coming in and sprinkle the pest potion in that area as well as wherever they seem to be hanging out. Be sure there isn't anything around that's somehow inviting them in -- food scraps, standing water or silver engraved invitation, etc. It's a great chemical free way to keep pests away. Happy Spring!
