DIY Solutions to the Six Worst Bug Problems

Pest control has sent all of us scrambling for bug spray at one point or another, or even hiring an exterminator like Orkin or Terminix. Termites, cockroaches, bed bugs, stink bugs, fleas, and ants are some of the most common unwanted visitors in our homes, but the good news is that there are some tried-and-true methods to kill insects that don’t involve toxic pesticides or poison.

Find out how to get rid of roaches, ants, stink bugs, termites, fleas, and bed bugs using all-natural remedies at the brand new!


  1. We take my dog swimming in the Gulf of Mexico around every other month. She is 10 and has never had fleas!

  2. I had a flea problem I was told to put baking soda and salt on my carpets and leave it overnight then vac it all up. The baking soda and salt worked amazingly!!! it dries out all fleas and their eggs!! I have not had 1 flea in my house in weeks!! remember to vac everyday for 3 days and always get rid of your bag after each vac. It is a bit dusty but such a cheap fix for a bad problem. my total cost was $5.00!!!!!

  3. These tips are extremely helpful, especially the one about the termites. It works best for drawing the termites out and away, but when it comes to their nests or mounds, it would still be best to call in professionals. Drawing the termites out will work only until a new batch find their way into the old mounds, so termite nests and mounds have to be destroyed as well. It’s best to call the exterminators for this because they are trained in handling large quantities of termites. Termites can leave nasty bites and inflict a great deal of pain, so it’s wise to stay away from them if we are unprotected.
