1 Detergent Solution - this is effective to kill all sorts of ants. The soap solution will drown and eventually kill them.

2 Natural Roach Killer – make balls out of these ingredients: baking soda, flour, shortening, chopped onions and sugar. Place them where roaches usually crawl. The combination of both the sugar and onions give out a smell that roaches cannot resist
Baking soda, on the other hand, causes gas and since roaches do not belch, their digestive tracts will explode, killing them instantly. Keep this concoction away from pets and children.

3 Water trap – fill a pan, or any shallow dish, partially with water and suspend light in it.

Winged termites, fleas and other insects that are attracted to light will crawl into it and drown.

4 Dark cider and red wine – this is for flies. Place dark cider or red wine in a jar. Cover it with plastic wrap that has holes in it. Holes are big enough for flies to get in. Place it in areas where flies are seen the most. They are attracted to the smell of the cider and red wine so they will enter the jar and drown inside. Bury them or flush them and replace the jar daily.

5 Garlic, mints and pepper – ticks and lice do not come near anything with mint, garlic or pepper. You can plant these things in a pot inside your home. You can also soak a cotton ball with spice lavender, eucalyptus, citronella, camphor, thyme, basil, lemon balm and chilli pepper.
