Terminix released its report Tuesday, basing it on an analysis of call volume to the Memphis, Tenn.-based company's 350 service centers.
Bedbugs can be found in mattresses, furniture and clothing, and they feed off animal and human blood. Insect scientists say bedbugs are appearing on a scale not seen since before World War II. High-traffic areas such as hotels, airplanes and cruise ships are especially prone to infestations.

Unique ideas for Natural Bug Spray


I am always looking for unique natural ideas to make homemade bug spray.  I ran across these two ideas at http://www.buzzle.com/articles/how-to-make-homemade-bug-spray.html.
Try this recipe:
Homemade Vodka Mist
Mix together jojoba oil (50 drops), lavender oil (50 drops), eucalyptus lemon (25 drops), lemongrass (25 drops), Cajeput (25 drops) and Patchouli (25 drops). Add this mixture into the vodka and mix it well. Before applying this mixture on your skin, make sure you have covered the skin with a layer of jojoba oil.
Check out:
Homemade Mint Soap Spray
Take two tablespoon full of any strong mint soap that is available to you and mix it up with a gallon of clean water. It is a very effective homemade bug spray when sprayed directly on the carpenter ants. You can also spray a little bit of this mint spray on the foliage of your plantation, it can be pretty useful to evade several other insects too. Do not spray too much of bug spray on the foliage as the soapy water may burn several plantations. This is an excellent homemade bug spray for plants.
We can all save the environment if we keep our eyes open.

New Ways to Make Homemade Bug Spray



Although ants aren't too harmful to humans, they can be a major pest.  Here are three or four ways to easily and naturally get rid of ants.
Try putting soapy water in a clean spray bottle and spray the ants and the ants trail with the soapy water.
Try changing the atmosphere.  Put a night light in the area of the ants infestation.  This change of atmosphere could disrupt their scavenger patterns of the ants.
Put a few cloves of garlic scattered around in the path of the ants.
As always, when trying to get rid of ants, keep all counters clear of bits of food and sticky surfaces and cut off water supply like soaking dishes in the sink.  These few tips can be a deterrent to ants in general.

Save Money by making your own Homemade Bug Spray

Everyone needs to cut back a little and find simple ways of solving problems without spending a lot of money. And I think everyone wants to help save the environment by going green! So this quick article is about doing all three.

One way you can save money, solve a problem and help the environment is making your own bug spray! Try vinegar! Every household usually has vinegar. If not, get some. Vinegar is an amazing product and can be used in a variety of ways.Fill a squirt bottle with plain old cheap white vinegar, and squirt it anyplace you've seen ants (kitchen counters, windowsills, etc) and let it dry. It's non-toxic, won't harm anything, and the smell will go away in just a couple of minutes. It worked for me! Vinegar changes the ants sense of smell and throws them off their mission.
