    Home remedies pests control
    I finds these tips that don't use toxic chemical interesting as everybody in their lives had to deal with problem pests such as roaches and mouse.

    From NBC web site:

    DIY repellent for ants: Save your coffee grounds! Coffee grounds are a natural ant repellent. If you spread coffee grounds around your windows and doors the ants will not come near them.

    DIY fruit fly remedy:Fill a glass container with 1-2 inches of apple cider vinegar. Tightly wrap the top of the bottle neck with plastic wrap and poke holes. Fruit flies will drown themselves in the apple cider vinegar after being lured in by the sweet scent.

    All-natural house fly repellent: To get rid of flies combine cloves, eucalyptus and clover blossoms in a sachet and hang it from your ceiling, recommends Annie Bond, author of Better Basics for the Home, and Gretchen Paluch, director of basic research at EcoSMART.

    When my first wife's brother lived with us, I would put the help wanted ads on his bed while he was sleeping every day. He eventually moved to another siblings house.
