3. Garden pests
Aphids, spider mites, and other garden pests can do big damage to your garden and all your effort will be ruined in the blink of an eye. Certainly, there are many pesticides available but the use of them can make fruits and vegetables inedible.
Mix 1/2 a cup of hot peppers with 1/2 a cup of garlic or onion, and blend it until it turns into a paste. Mix the paste with 500 ml of warm water. Let it sit for 24 hours in a warm place, strain it and spray your plants with this liquid.
Even if you don’t get poisonous spiders in your area, you most likely would still appreciate knowing that they can’t come in the house. They can get absolutely anywhere and even the smallest ones are really scary.
This natural repellent won’t kill the spiders but it will keep them away because they don’t like strong smells. Add 5-10 drops of peppermint oil into a mix of 200 ml of water and 1/4 tsp of liquid detergent, shake well and spray the affected areas once a week until all spiders run away. The peppermint oil can be substituted with eucalyptus, citronella, lavender or tea tree oil.
