A Natural Way to Keep Pests Away: Bay Leaves and Cloves

Have you had enough of pests like cockroaches, flies, and mosquitoes? An easy, all-natural remedy exists for the problem of these pests. You may make the atmosphere unbearable for these unwanted visitors by using cloves and bay leaves.

For what reason are bay leaves and cloves used?
The fragrant bay leaves have many uses beyond seasoning stews and soups. Bay leaves have a pungent aroma that's nice for people but turns off a lot of bugs. The essential oils they contain are well-known for their pest-repelling properties.

For their warm, spicy taste, many cooks rely on cloves—tiny buds with a lot of punch. But, eugenol, a component of cloves, is strongly despised by many bugs and hence has great insect-repelling characteristics.
