Essential Oils for Insect Control


 
Home Improvement,Environment,Family & Parenting
We don't need poisons to kill pests. We can repel them or kill them with substances that are not only harmless to us but are actually healthful to us.

Essential oil products do not harm humans or animals, have a pleasant smell and are safe to spray around furniture, making them a common choice to fight pest in households with children and pets around. Essential oils can repel pests from you and your kids, without the harsh chemicals and toxins in regular pest repellants.

And how do you use them? One way is to get a pistol-grip squirt bottle. Mix a few drops of the oil with some water, shake it up, and start firing. If you have bugs on your plants, like aphids on your roses, you can squirt the leaves and drive the bugs away with no harm to your plant. You can do the same with the other pests. As for ants, you can smear a line of peppermint or spearmint across your kitchen counter or floor and the ants won't cross it.

If you already have a line of ants invading your house, just draw a line of oil across them and they will turn back. It is fun to watch. And as for flies, you can knock them dead right out of the air with one shot from your pistol grip.

Essential oils are usually applied to the skin and absorbed into the body. The same is definitely true when treating pets with essential oils too. When used topically, in the right amounts, essential oils can have some wonderful health benefits for you and your family.

Specific Oils for Specific Insects

ANTS – Peppermint, Spearmint

APHIDS – Cedarwood, Hyssop, Peppermint, Spearmint

BEETLES – Peppermint, Thyme

CATERPILLARS – Spearmint, Peppermint

CHIGGERS – Lavender, Lemongrass, Sage, Thyme

CUTWORM – Thyme, Sage

FLEAS – Peppermint, Lemongrass, Spearmint, Lavender

FLIES – Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sage

GNATS – Patchouli, Spearmint

LICE – Cedarwood, Peppermint, Spearmint

MOSQUITOES – Lavender, Lemongrass

MOTHS – Cedarwood, Hyssop, Lavender, Peppermint, Spearmint

PLANT LICE – Peppermint, Spearmint

SLUGS – Cedarwood, Hyssop, Pine

SNAILS – Cedarwood, Pine, Patchouli

SPIDERS – Peppermint, Spearmint

TICKS – Lavender, Lemongrass, Sage, Thyme

WEEVILS – Cedarwood, Patchouli, Sandalwood

Citronella can be toxic, so it has to be used on the skin very sparingly, but it is also what is used in commercial pest repellant candles and smokers, and probably works the best for repelling.

You can use the same mixture to spray the clothing and mist the hair of your children and yourself before spending time outside, and the mixture is safe and non-toxic--just be sure not to get any in the eyes or up the nose.
