Fruit Flies and Bed bugs!

Get rid of those Fruit Flies!

Summer is here along with all the little pesks that go with it, so here are some summer cures.

To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass or bowl, and fill it with Apple Cider Vinegar and two drops of dish liquid; mix well. The flies will be drawn to tne container, fall in and die to never return.

Ants got you down and you have a pet or small children and don't want to use an ant killer? No problem. Put small piles of cornmeal where you see the ants. They eat it, take it home and can't digest it so they die. It may take a week, but it works and you have no worries.

Squirrels eating your plants? Sprinkle your plants with cayenne pepper. The pepper doesn't hurt the plants and the squirrels won;t go near it.

Like Bananas? If you peel your banana from the bottom you won't have to pick the little "stringy things" off of it.

Take your bananas apart when you get them home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they will ripen faster.

Traveling? Take along some zip lock bags to put the hotel remotes in before you use them. Imagine how many germs are on them? This is a good idea if you are going to be in the hospital also.

Bed Bugs? Always, put your suit case on the stand the hotel provides you. Never on the bed or the floor. Remove the ends of the sheet and check the seams of the mattress cover or mattress for any brown stains. This could mean bugs have been there.I have a spray, I carry with me when I travel. It's made with water, Tea Tree Oil, Eucalyptus Oil and sometimes I add Peppermint OIl. I put it in a spray bottle and spray my pajamas and slippers with it. It smells pretty good actually, and it masks your body odor making it harder for the bugs to find you. They are blind, so they find you my smell. It's the same spray our company uses when we do bed bug preps.

Legs kind of dry? Use hair conditioner instead of shaving cream to shave your legs. It's cheaper- especially- if you use a kind you bought you didn't like anyway. It makes your legs really smooth!

Well, Till Later
