Insects are a class of invertebrates within the arthropod phylum that have a chitinous exoskeleton, a three-part body (head, thorax and abdomen), three pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes and one pair of antennae. They are usually small, although beetles can become rather big for insects.
There are many species of insects which feed on plants, meat or carrion. They are an important part of nature as they exterminate other species and prevent plagues. They are in charge of decomposing and eliminating organic matter and are the main pollinizers of plants, which is of major economic and ecological importance. However, they also scare many people.
We all know how some people react when they see a spider in their home – they start screaming and jumping around, and sometimes even throw shoes at the insect, hoping they’ll kill it. We all love nature, but no one wants to see spiders or cockroaches in their home. The usual spider repellents are chemical and have adverse side-effects, but luckily for you, we have a completely natural solution that will get rid of the critters and make your home smell fresh.
The solution is actually a plant called mint, which is characterized by a fresh scent. Mint is commonly used in different cuisines, but some people use it for its therapeutic properties as well. In order to repel spiders and cockroaches in your home, you should brew some fresh mint tea, leave it to cool down and pour it in a spray bottle. Next, spray the tea everywhere in your home and pay special attention to dark corners and wall crevices to keep insects away from your rooms and make your home smell fresher than ever.
