Pest Control

Tips to Control PestsTip of the Day:

Instead of buying expensive mosquito coils or candles,
use a cardboard egg carton or coffee tray (the kind you get when you order a couple of coffees to-go).
Light it on fire, then blow it out and let it smolder in a fire-safe location.
It works as a smudge to keep mosquitoes and other bugs far away!

Head Lice Home Remedy

Head Lice Natural Remedy

HOME REMEDY FOR HEAD LICE!!

Believe me, you’ll want to share and save this one –
especially if you’re a parent! Head lice become a continual problem this time of year if you don’t treat it quickly!

Coconut oil + apple cider vinegar.

Coconut oil dissolves the lice’s outer skeletal shell instantly.

Apply that thoroughly to hair, and then rinse with vinegar.

No nasty chemicals! Add a second rinse with vinegar, and comb through again with a nit comb.

Repeat as necessary, and this is safe enough to use for your other members of the household who haven’t yet shown signs of the little critters!

Take a gallon milk jug and cut an upside down V shape in the side 2/3 way up on the jug.
Press the tab in.
Pour fruit juice ( I use apple) 1 inch deep into the jug.
