Using Essential Oils as a DIY (Do It Yourself) pest control treatment, is a precautionary measure. This method is best implemented after a professional treatment has been done on to your premises. You can use these Oils as a prevention, however, remember that you can not be certain as to how far the infestation has spread. Yes, you may have eliminated one of the pests but what if there are many more where that one came from.

The below Oils can be used to alleviate various Pest Control problems. Please note that you will need a glass spray bottle, water and the oils in the preventions below. Add a few drops of the oil (depending on how strong you want your home to smell of the scent) to 250ml to 500ml of water. This is dependent on the surface area you need to cover. Make sure to spray adequately to all possible infested areas. You are more than welcome to read a few of our other blogs to see where other insects tend to nest so you can know where to spray the oils.

Insect Essential Oils
Ants Peppermint Spearmint Cinnamon
Beetles Peppermint Thyme Oregano
Flies Peppermint Eucalyptus Basil Rosemary
Mosquitoes Citronella Lemongrass Lavender
Roaches Eucalyptus Tea Tree
Spiders Peppermint Spearmint
Fleas Peppermint Lavender Lemongrass
Ticks Thyme Lemongrass Lavender Sage

As you can see from the above list, you can treat more than one cause with the same oil. Example: you can use Peppermint Oil to treat Ants, Beetles, Flies, Spiders, and Fleas all at the same time. So, whatever your need, bear in mind that you are protecting your home from many other insects by treating one of their infestations.

As stated in our disclaimer, these are temporary measures and depending on the extent of the infestation it is best to contact a qualified pest control agent.
