Nothing gets us squirming quite like a cockroach scurrying across the kitchen floor.

The situation is even more embarrassing when it happens in our own home.

When we become so focused on killing bugs and insects, we sometimes forget how harmful pesticides are to our health. More importantly, the health complications that toxic chemicals can have on our kids.

Exposure to some pesticides have been linked to childhood cancers, learning disabilities and even asthma. Babble explores the risks pest control can have on babies and children.

So this brings us to the question:

“How can I keep ants, cockroaches and rodents away without impacting my kids’ health?”

We’re going to show you three ways:

#1: Use natural pest control repellents

#2: Use non toxic chemicals that kill pests but won’t harm kids

#3: Use a chemical-free pest control technology

We’re going to explore each of these three methods and give you practical advice you can implement right away.

Let’s kick it off with a preventative tactic — natural pest control repellents.

Use natural pest control repellents

Minimise the number of chemicals in your home by using natural pest control repellents.

It’s a warm summer night and you’re woken by the sound of pests running around in your roof. Startled by the noise, your newborn baby starts crying. It’s the third night in a row these pesky pests have disturbed the peace. Time to roll up your sleeves and create some natural pest repellents. We’ve shared three natural pest repellent strategies:

Natural insect repellent

What you need:

  • 10 drops of essential oils of mint, lavender, and eucalyptus
  • Vinegar
  • Water

Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle. When insects cross your path, spray them. This solution can also be used as a deterrent in known pest hotspots around the home.

Natural ant repellent

What you need:

  • Cayenne powder (Available from your local supermarket)
  • Diatomaceous earth (Available online at Diatomaceous Earth Online)

Mix both ingredients and sprinkle the powder in ant-prone areas.

Natural cockroach repellent

What you need:

  • Diatomaceous earth

Sprinkle the soil above cabinets, windows and entry ways.
