How to drive pests out of your home: a simple life hack with bay leaves
When cockroaches or ants appear in your home, it's a real disaster because it can be very difficult to drive them out. The pests will not want to leave the "settled" territory so easily.
And it's not just about external discomfort - you don't really want uninvited "guests" running around on your kitchen table in your absence. OBOZREVATEL figured out how to get rid of cockroaches and ants with the help of bay leaves.
Cockroaches carry pathogens of dangerous infectious diseases such as salmonellosis, dysentery, meningitis, etc. Moving through sewer pipes, they bring pathogens into the house that can cause allergies, dermatitis, and other skin reactions.
Cockroaches, which spread an unpleasant odor due to traces of vital activity and reproduction, are not very fond of pungent aromas themselves. That's why experts say that bay leaves are a very effective way to fight pests.
It is recommended to scatter dry leaves in the corners of the room and in places where cockroaches usually appear. You can also put bay leaves on the shelves where cereals are stored.
A pungent odor will repel pests. But you shouldn't limit yourself to folk methods. If your home suffers from periodic cockroach "raids", you can't do without specialists. Professional pest control should be carried out.
