50+ Natural Ways To Keep Insects Out Of Your HomePhoto – russavia (Wikipedia) lic. under CC 2.0

We just found a great “mother ship” type list with a ton of natural / non-toxic ways to repel / get rid of numerous different insects – including flies, mosquitos, fleas, dust mites, cockroaches, ants, wasps, moths and more.

I confess. I’m a bit of a softie sometimes when it comes to certain critters – and have my own strange set of “rules of engagement”. Mosquitos and flies I have absolutely no time for and They Shall Perish (by fair means or foul) if they invade My Airspace or attempt landings. We tend to get flies here because of the horses, but have recently found an amazing remedy in the form of predator wasps, which you can purchase by the bag. Gets rid of most of the flies in the summer, really amazing stuff. A form of recycling!

Spiders? I keep a jar on a shelf specially for them – and on sight I will catch them and put them out. I’m a little scared of them, but I also feel a sort of kinship with them. Playing the piano and working on the “world wide web” are somewhat spiderish activities, aren’t they? 😉

Moths? Well, I just adore them and will talk to them in sweet voices as if they are faeries. (well, maybe they are!) This might change, however, if they decide to eat my nice threads.

Recently, however, I have the most peculiar “insect dilemma” and I may need help: I have a small yellowjacket (wasp) nest in the trunk of my car! They have set up camp under the lid of the trunk, and there seem to be about 10 of them in their little nest. I could easily get rid of them with soap water or something nasty, but so far I haven’t had the heart to do it! The variety that comes around here are (this sounds strange) the most chill yellowjackets I have ever come across!! They never fly in my face, never even seem to notice that I exist. I open the trunk and they don’t even fly up, they just sit on their little honeycomb as calm as anything. What’s entertaining is that when I drive out for the afternoon, the ones that were “out on a mission” at the time, must just be hanging out somewhere nearby, as when I arrive, two or three immediately appear and make for their home, just taking its mysterious disappearance and reappearance in their stride!

What’s really strange is that I used to hate yellowjackets. Been stung so many times when minding my own business. But for a very odd reason I find this little nest of them somehow charming. They are literally so mellow that I am not afraid of them, and have noticed their cuteness for the first time. I suppose I shall have to do away with them, although they have never actually gotten inside the cabin, it could cause a problem if they do.

Don’t get me wrong. Sometimes critters absolutely cross the boundaries. Ever tried explaining to a mosquito that we are at the top of the food chain? They will simply laugh as they sink their teeth into you. Mosquitos are our natural predator and enemy and I have no time for them. But with other creatures, for best “karma” or whatever you want to call it, see if you can find a way to put them out / deter them / not attract them first, before administering the “long sleep”…

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

>> Click here to find out about them now

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:

    I have tried everything to rid my house of flies nothing I’ve tried worked please help!!!!

    Take baggies, put a few pennies in it, fill half water. Give the flies an exit like raising window and hang baggie by it. Also works great for animals in barns and stalls. Just use larger bags. Somehow they see their reflection and leave.

    I read in handy magazine, long ago, that dish detergent is the best stuff to use to clean windows. Just get yourself a washing wand & a squeegee tto dry the windows. Must have a long adjustable handle to reach high places. Works great and no streaks. And is really a fast way to do them! The washing wand & squeegee comes in different sizes. So consider how big your windows are when buying at Lowes or HD.

    P.S. A little detergent goes a long way. Just a few drops in a half bucket of water.

    I get rid of gnats with a jar of vinegar with tiny holes in the lid. It really works.

    Hi there. It’s a lovely story about the Lil yellowjacket in your
    Trunk (Boot, as we call it in Aust) of your car.
    Im just wondering if the strange calmness of your Wasps may be because of the Exhaust fumes coming in from the Tail Pipe of the Gas (Petrol)making them Sleepy ?. If so, you may have discovered a new way
    to control them!. LOL <3 🙂 Gayle MM.
    ps, I am loving your Site!. Cheers
