Is there anything in life more discomforting than hearing critters crawl around your home in the middle of the night? I think I speak for everyone when I say that we could all do without ever having to see a cockroach crawl across the floor of our house again. Mice are also a common pest that will not only ruin your food but also bring in a host of bacteria and diseases.
For pet owners who don't like the idea of spraying pesticide around the house, or for those who don't have the heart to use mousetraps, Bulk Herb Store has an easy fix. In this video, we learn how a simple peppermint plant can be used as a safe, natural pesticide that not only gets rid of pests, it also looks pretty and smells good too.
You can either set up a peppermint plant in your house, make a sock full of dried peppermint leaves, or make a peppermint spray. The first method is great because it also provides plenty of fresh peppermint to do all kinds of other fun things with, but if you're not into all that maintenance, the other two methods work just as well. The spray, in particular, is easy-to-use and can be applied to just about any part of your home. Watch the video below to learn more.
