In this post, I’m going to show you how you can use peppermint oil for bugs, believe me when I tell you that it’s extremely efficient, it’s going to give you fantastic results, especially if you have a small garden, and most importantly, it’s very cost-effective.
Here are some questions we need to answer first:
What bugs does peppermint oil repel?
Peppermint oil is very effective against these bugs:
- Mealy bugs
- Leaf miners
- Bed bugs
- Japanese beetles
- Fruit flies
I know that this this is going to sound too good to be true, however, trust me, it’s extremely powerful, peppermint oil, when used the right way for bugs, can get rid of a large number and so many types, it’s also a fantastic fungicide if you have fungal problems with your plants, and it can also be used as an extremely powerful fungicide for your own skin as well, in fact, in this website, I keep hammering this idea over and over, you need to try it for yourself in order to see how fantastic it is.
Does peppermint oil repel bugs?
Of course, it’s very powerful, it’s not only going to repel them, it’s going to keep bugs away, but if you apply it directly on bugs, it’s going to kill them, however, you have to respect my recipe, otherwise, you are only going to make a very weak batch which is not going to be extremely efficient if you ask me.
Does peppermint oil attract bugs?
Many people have heard this before, that peppermint oil will attract bugs, the reality is completely different, peppermint oil is very efficient against bugs, it’s going to kill them if applied directly, and if you only apply around your house, it’s going to drive them away and keep them this way for a very long time.
Now, let me show you how you can use peppermint oil for bugs the right way:
First of all, you need to use it once every three weeks, it’s very powerful, however, if you have a very active garden, you can use it up to once every day, after all, it’s a completely organic product, it will not hurt you, and most importantly, it’s not going to hurt your plants.
So, take two tablespoons of organic peppermint oil to which you are going to add three tablespoons of neem oil, one teaspoon of tea tree oil, and most importantly, one tablespoon of ground soap.
Then, I want you to put everything in a garden sprayer to which you are going to add one liter of warm water.
Keep shaking everything and then, I want you to spray all over your garden or your house, believe me when I tell you that it’s very efficient, it’s going to solve a lot of your bug problems, and most importantly, it doesn’t cost a lot.
