Right from the smallest fruit flies to spiders, cockroaches, and lizards, there are many pests that enter into our homes without our knowledge and carry in pathogens that affect our health and hygiene. Here is a list of DIY techniques that could be used to naturally repel pests.

Spiders

The arachnoids live in many houses and build their nests in the corners and untouched spaces. The cobwebs add on to a lot of dust accumulation and make the house look untidy. Apart from this, there are spiders called the black widow and recluse that bring in sickness with every bite.
