Here are a few less toxic ways to get rid of pests:
Roaches (yuck!) - put boric acid in childproof bait
containers and place under
kitchen sink, in pantries and cabinets.
Spiders (creepy!) - Vacuum corners and around windows once a month them
dump vacuum bag immediately.
Ants (pesky!) - fill a spray bottle with
equal parts vinegar and water then spray around doorways, windows and other
popular ant spots.
There are also eco-friendly products available to tackle these critters.
