Ok so this Flashing
Dragon could probably scare away any and all rodents and
other critters, but for those who are not lucky enough to have a dragon in the
house, here are a few helpful hints you can try!!
Bug and Rodent Deterrents
I saw this on the web and
thought it might be something interesting to pass along
for those that have critters in their house!! I also added new ones from the book
Gardening With The Goddess.
Ants: Spray vinegar on ant trails and around the areas they are
Place sprigs of Penneyroyal, Tansy or Rue in the cupboards and shelves.
Ants also detest Cinnamon. (of course Raid will work also, but the smell is
awful LOL )
Asparagus Beetle: Basil and Tomato.
Cabbage Butterfly: Southernwood
Fleas: Fleas hate Laurel leaves, Rue and Winter Savory. Crush and
rugs and couch and chair cushions, doormats ect.
Flies: Hang sprigs of Lavender, Mint, Pennyroyal, Peppermint or
potpourri's out of Lavender. Grow anyone of these herbs in or outside of
Japanese Beetle: Chives and Garlic.
Mice: Place sprigs of Tansy or Mint on your shelves, cupboards or
mice have been.
Moths: Make sachets out of Lavender, Lemon, Thyme, Rosemary, Tansy
wood. Place in linen closets or drawers.
Potato Beetle: Tansy, Catnip, Nasturtium and Marigold.
Peach Aphid: Catnip
Squash Bug: Tansy
Weevil: Place Bay leaves on shelves and cupboards. Put a whole leave
flour, rice and dried beans.
