Get rid of insects with a very easy and chemical-free method!
It’s the jar trick, which is little known compared to commercially available chemical products, but just as effective as them. Inside it you need to put a macerate of vinegar and mint. To prepare it you must first put the vinegar and then add the mint leaves and let it macerate for a week.
After this time has passed and helping yourself with a strainer, strain the mixture. Once this is done, you can take a spray bottle and pour the liquid inside, diluting it with a tiny bit of water. Now all you have to do is spray it on the surfaces where they settle most and in the places they love, and you will see that as soon as they smell it, they will go away immediately.
You can also prepare a jar with this solution already filtered inside and place it perhaps on the table where you are having lunch or where you have food, they will not approach. In addition to this method, there are others that are always natural. Let’s look at them below:
Garlic and vinegar
Mixing these two ingredients you can be sure will keep the flies away. To prepare this mixture you will need to put about 100 ml of vinegar and two cloves of garlic without the peel in a spray bottle. Now it is ready to be used as a fly repellent.
Lemon and cloves
In this case, it will be sufficient to have a lemon and cloves. Pin these on the lemon slices in a saucer and place them in strategic places. The flies will not get in.
You can apply this method by just putting water in a bowl and adding lots of black pepper. Then place it in the places where the flies might enter. They will not approach because they hate this smell.
Insects hate the scent of basil leaves, so it is useful to have seedlings of this aromatic plant in strategic spots in the house and balcony. It will keep the flies away.
