Are you looking for a natural bug spray recipe?

Essential oils, such as that of eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint, lemongrass or clove have always been used to address bug and mite infestations of all kind, and it is usually their strong scent that keeps these tiny critters at bay. Essential oils act as a natural and efficient bed bug repellent, as the bugs seem to hate the smell and taste.  Give this natural bug spray recipe a try and let me know what you think.

If you are looking for something to kill them, try diatomaceous earth, a highly potent and 100% organic powder you can find at most gardening stores or online at Amazon. Diatomaceous earth efficiently kills adult bed bugs and all their eggs. Gently sprinkle the powder in all the places where bed bugs gather. Make sure to purchase food grade diatomaceous earth.
