Permanent Pest Control: Natural Methods to Get Rid of Fleas, Ants, and Cockroaches in Your Home

Creating a DIY insect repellent spray that’s safe and effective is a great way to keep unwanted pests like fleas, ants, and cockroaches out of your home without resorting to harsh chemicals. Here’s how to make and use it:


1 cup of liquid detergent
2 cups of alcohol or apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of cloves
1/4 cup of water


Boil 1/4 cup of water in a saucepan.

Once it’s boiling, add the cloves and let them simmer for 10 minutes.

While the clove infusion is simmering, mix 1 cup of liquid detergent and 2 cups of alcohol (or apple cider vinegar) in a separate container.

After 10 minutes, turn off the heat and allow the clove infusion to cool.

Once the clove infusion has cooled, combine it with the detergent and alcohol (or vinegar) mixture. Mix gently to avoid excessive foaming.

Pour the resulting solution into a spray bottle with a diffuser nozzle.

How to Use:

Spray the homemade repellent in areas that are frequented by insects, especially entry points where they may be entering your home.

Keep surfaces clean to remove food residues that could attract insects, as well as to eliminate insect eggs and larvae.
