How to get rid of bedbugs in the house?

-A great grandmother’s natural remedy is garlic . Bedbugs, in fact, cannot bear the smell and tend to stay away. This remedy could become unpleasant at home, therefore, adopt it near doors and windows. To soften the smell, place a basil plant nearby, excellent against insects. To prepare the garlic remedy put two cloves to boil in a liter of water and let it cool. Then spray the mixture on the outside windowsills of the house or on the balconies.

– Another natural repellent against green and brown bugs is catnip . Also known as feline mint, it has a very pleasant smell, unlike garlic, and can be kept at home. Bedbugs don’t like this plant at all and creates an immediate repellent effect .

Alternatively, you can use mint leaves or mint essential oil, similar to catnip in smell. Boil a handful of leaves and rub with a cloth on the furniture to spread the aroma.

-Finally, try the repellent action of tobacco . Get 25 grams of leaf tobacco and boil it in a liter of water Leave to infuse for at least hard hours and after filtering it add a few drops of Marseille soap . Mix everything and pour the product obtained into a spray bottle and use it where necessary.
