Natural Gecko Repellent
These can be very annoying creatures especially when they invade your house and litter all over the place giving you the extra work of having to clean your house again and again. They like to hide on cracks on walls and therefore the best way to get rid of them would be to use a device that has the capability to use the electromagnetic technology which uses the wiring of the house. I have talked about these gadgets in my previous posts on this blog and most importantly I have reviewed the lizard repellent which will work the same way to deter geckos.
We have several gecko repellents in the market and all you have to do is check this blog and read my past articles on where you can be able to get the best deal and purchase one for your house.
The only natural way I know that even works for most pests is to keep your house as clean as possible. Although these little reptiles have been known to feed on flies and other insects, which is a good thing, they still pose a risk of bringing to the house diseases and other kinds of unwanted germs and for this reason, it is better to just have them out of the house.
If there is a humane way to keep geckos away then the only way will be to get yourself a unit of the gecko repellent device without having to kill them or using harmful pesticides which pose an environmental risk to everyone around.
Having said that please head right over to the lizard repellent post and read more on where you can buy this device and get rid of them for good in your house. You will also be able to get offers and therefore save a lot more to use for something else.
How do you get rid of black widow spiders?
These types of insects usually have some positive uses in the houses as we all know like killing of house flies and other insects in the house but is there a method of how to get rid of black widow spiders
? In this post we will try to identify them then discuss different ways to get rid of them either in the house or yard.
How to identify the black widow spiders
These are some of the most dangerous insects in the world, and also some of the household pests that bite human beings. The female can be easily recognized because they are black in color. The male is usually smaller than the female black widow spider. The smaller ones are yellow or white when they hatch and are not harmful to human beings at this stage. They prefer very dark areas and this is the reason that they like to hunt mostly during the night. In the house you will find them in the darkest corners. The female black widow spiders are most dangerous because they emit venom when they bite which can kill human beings.
Now if you want to get rid of the black widow spider, then you have to do this during the day because you can easily spot them. Once you spot where their webs are, then you should come back at night and kill them. A point to note is that it is better to kill them than get rid of them because they are harmful. There are many ways that you can use to get rid of these black widow spiders and one of them is by the use of insecticides. Spray the insecticide directly to the spider so that it can be killed immediately.
The other method is to just kill them by hitting them with an object to make sure they are killed. Make sure that you do not in any way come into contact with the spider because of the venom that they have in them.
Here is how to kill bed bugs yourself
Have bedbugs infested your home? If your answer to this question is yes, then you need to read this post very carefully and learn how to kill bed bugs home remedies. These are remedies that can be done by yourself without having to hire an exterminator or pest control companies that will make you pay lots of money. There are very many companies that get rid of bedbugs like orkin and their prices can be found here.
You can also purchase the Harris bed bug killer at home depot and this is an ointment that can be applied and kill bugs. There is also fumigation of bedbugs that you can learn about its costs and how long it takes in this post here. Now all these are not natural ways and this post is all about home remedies that can be done by you. Let us now highlight some of the various ways in which a homeowner can be able to kill these pesky creatures without harming the surrounding environment.
Submission to high temperatures
One fact about bed bugs is that they cannot survive in very high temperatures that are over 30 degrees. Now once we have established where they have infested including clothes and mattresses, we should then proceed to steam these items or subject them to high temperatures. This will result in them being killed. There are hand stem blowers that can be bought in stores locally.
Use of Nontoxic baits
Diatomaceous earth is also a remedy that can be used to kill the bed bugs. Buy these and spread around the area where they have infested. This is very safe with human beings and therefore can be used as much as possible. What happens with this food is that once they have fed on it, they become dehydrated and therefore suffocate.
I will highlight more remedies on how to kill bed bugs in future posts.

When some of these flying creatures tend to make a surface their home, they will roost at this place. This causes all kinds of damages to properties, especially with their droppings. They sometimes also cause hazards like fire. With this gel, also manufactured by bird-x, it makes these surfaces very uncomfortable such that they will be irritated whenever they land on the surface.

This is mostly homemade and you can easily make it using naturally available materials that can be found around many homes. Use this recipe, mix chili peppers and water then place where you would like to deter the birds. It’s very important that you do not spray this to what they feed on like the fruits.

Animal Repellers & Repellents
Since not all types of electronic pest control products are manufactured for the same kind of pesky creatures, we have those that are specifically designed to get rid of the unwanted animals outdoors.
These are the animals that mess up our garden and patio furniture in addition to causing a nuisance at night. They include animals like deers, rabbits, raccoons, the neighbors pets, rabbits, squirrels, skunks and much more.
Most of these devices usually come with a mounting bracket or screws if you want to place it on the tree or fence. Since they are supposed to work in the night, they are motion activated and therefore will detect any slight movement produced by an intruder or any moving object.
Once the motion is detected, they will automatically emit very strong ultrasonic waves which will deter these unwanted animals. They are weatherproof to work day and night and also utilize solar power. Here are some:
- Bell and Howell 50104 motion Animal Repeller
- Bird-x Yard Gard Ultrasonic
Electronic Ultrasonic and Electromagnetic Pest Repellers
These are the most common ones that are used in many homes. They come in many varieties and have very different and distinct features, some of which include blue, red or green nightlight: – which can be used to provide some light in the night when there is total darkness and you don’t want to switch on the normal light.
This can be helpful if the device has been placed in the bedroom, kitchen or bathroom. This same led light usually also helps to indicate whether the device is working correctly or not.
The other feature is the ultrasonic and electromagnetic waves they emit. When they are turned on, they can either emit one or both of these waves depending on the technology on which they have been manufactured on.
These strong sounds cannot be heard by a human being or a child and are only meant for the pests. It affects the nervous system of these creatures, and once this is done, they find it difficult to communicate with each other and can also not feed properly so, therefore, they stay away from the area.
Ultrasonic waves are best for open spaces in the living area while electromagnetic sounds are better for cracks on walls since they utilize the electrical circuit or wiring around the house to create an electromagnetic field. It’s always advisable to get one for each level of your house.
On the cover or the pack of these gadgets, is indicated the surface area in which they can cover so chose the one that best suits your house and also which type of pest they get rid of whether they are mosquitoes, roaches, rats, mice, rodents, ants, fleas, bats, spider, geckoes or lizards. Instructions and manual are also packed together.
Some also have an extra outlet where you can be able to plug in your other electrical appliances, and others can either be battery powered or use electricity. There are also those that have the additional feature of emitting beneficial ions or breathalyzer which purify and freshen the air we breathe around us.
All these devices are safe to use in the house and therefore do not affect small children or pregnant women. The only ones that are affected are pets like gerbils and hamsters because their nervous system is more or less the same to that one of the other pesky creatures. Humane unlike pesticides which tend to kill the pests, here they are only gotten rid of without causing any harm.

Getting rid of dogs and cats
Although these are man’s best friends, sometimes they tend to be a nuisance in our lives. A dogs bark is good when scaring intruders during the night or even at daytime, but when it is done to your precious visitors, it becomes bad.
There is also a time when your precious furniture, lawns, flowers, plants are getting messed up by these pets and so it becomes necessary to chase them away then.
Most of the devices in this category are also like trainers and will train them to behave in a certain way when used in them. There are homemade prays, whistles, collars that are used which are portable.
Just like the other devices mentioned above these also use ultrasonic pulses to deter them and not harm them in any way. Some of these sounds can even be downloaded as mp3.
