    Whether in the garden, yard or in the house, all of us have at one
    time or another had to deal with pests. Here are some ways to get rid
    of insects and other pests without spending a lot on expensive
    products.

    1. For garden pests, make a mixture of 1 tablespoon liquid
    dishwashing soap and 1 cup of cooking oil. Mix about 3 tablespoons of
    this concentrate with a quart of water in a pump bottle, and spray it
    on the plants. Another recipe for insect control: soak citrus rind
    (lemon, orange, grapefruit) in water for a few days. Pour the water
    into a pump bottle and spray on plants.

    2. Sprinkle cayenne pepper around plants to keep cats away.

    3. Cucumber peel on a kitchen shelf will deter ants. You can also try
    washing or spraying your cabinets with vinegar and water.

    4. Basil is a natural insect repellent. Keep a pot in your kitchen.
    Take a few leaves along with you on a picnic and put them out on the
    table to keep the flies away.

    5. Bay leaves in your pantry will keep pests away. A bay leaf in a
    container of flour, cornmeal or cereal will keep weevils out.

    6. Plant peppermint around your house. It will keep ants out, and it
    repels mice also.


    7. Cinnamon sprinkled around your foundation is said to keep ants out.

    8. Weeds are not really pests, but they can be really pesky! Hot
    water will kill most unwanted plants. Just boil some water and pour
    it over the plant you want to kill. Some weeds may require more than
    one dousing.

    9. Mint tea bags can be used in your clothing drawers or in your
    closet to repel moths.
