What are the best natural home pest control methods?

Here I am sharing the two ways in which to address your pest control; you can expose insects and rodents to natural repellants, or create a barrier they won’t want to cross. Each pest will dislike a different thing, so you can try a few of these methods to see which one works best for you:Soap and water:
A great tip to remember is to keep a spray bottle full of soapy water on hand in your kitchen. Spraying ants, roaches and spiders with it will kill them and cut off their path.Boric acid:
Boric acid is not highly toxic, but human and pets should never ingest it and should keep contact to a minimum. It can be a great option to kill roaches, silverfish and other wingless insects if you place small amounts of it mixed with sugar on counters and cabinets in your kitchen and bathroom.Essential oils:
There are many essential oils that have been proven to be effective insect repellants. Mix 2 teaspoons of oil and a cup of grain alcohol (such as vodka) in a spray bottle, and spread it around your home, paying special attention to the places where insects congregate. Some essential oils include, peppermint, rosemary, tea tree, geranium, lemon eucalyptus, lemongrass, lavender, and citronella.Vinegar:
Vinegar is also a very versatile substance with many household uses. Fill a spray bottle and spray your porch and backyard to keep weeds at bay. Use apple cider vinegar to attract fruit flies into a glass and kill them, or mix equal parts water and white vinegar and apply to cracks, openings and other entrances to keep spiders away.
