Peppermint Oil And Household Pests
Anyone who lives in Miami or South Florida is well aware of household pests that prevail in this part of the country. Some of these are cockroaches, beetles, earwigs, true flies, ants, bees, wasps, mice and rats. Peppermint oil can help keep a home free of bugs.
Mice can cause significant damage as well as carrying disease. If pure peppermint oil is put on cotton balls and distributed around the house mice will leave the premises. These cotton balls have to be replaced 1 or 2 days a week. Peppermint oil cotton balls will also repel spider, ants, mosquitos and other pests. You can also use a spray bottle to spray directly on the insect. It is an inexpensive way to keep your home free of these bugs.
If you are being bombarded with mosquitoes, mix a few drops in a bottle with water and spray across the body. Mosquitoes cannot stand the smell and will not attack you when this is done. You can also find directions, on the Internet, for use of peppermint oil to fight bugs in your garden.
Other Peppermint Oil Uses

Peppermint Oil Precautions
