You’d be surprised at how insects and other pests can actually crawl up your drainage pipe at home. Every time, when you wash plates and let leftover food find its way into your sink’s drainage pipe, you’re inviting pests into your home.
Cleanse your draining pipe by pouring half a cup of baking soad and half a cup of vinegar to dissolve leftover food particles. Afterwards, rinse with boiling water.
Some plants like Citronella, Marigold and Catnip can help to repel some insects from entering your house.
Alternatively, get yourself some citronella or lemongrass spray and spray your curtains with them to keep insects like mosquitos and flies out.
