The plant mint known as Mentha has a strong flavor, which is wonderful for us – but horrible for insects. It will protect your home not only from spiders, but also from other insects and fruit flies. Peppermint has a strong flavor, but other varieties – spearmint, pineapple, lemon, – also will have the same effect planting them in your home.
Its main ingredient is fresh mint. All you have to do is to mix a small amount of essential oil of mint with water (about 10 drops in half a liter of water) and pour into a sprayer. With this mixture, you can spray all the dark corners of your apartment, terrace, storage room in the yard, and all the places where spiders and insects were seen. The pleasant smell of the spray will serve you as a natural air freshener that is completely harmless to humans.
