Put a Pest Strip in Your Vacuum

Put a pest strip in your vacuum cleaner. (any vacuum cleaner) Pest strips are about $6.00, but every time you vacuum you WILL cut down on ants, spiders, earwigs and who knows what else. It works, really.

Sorry---Avoid those pest strips like the devil was in them..

Pesticides are linked with parkinson's, ovarian and prostate cancer, brain tumors, and more.

Chances are it is the dust killing the pests anyway. It's as if you sprinkled dust on their breathing apparatus.They will die from that alone...

For those with questions about the pest strip, I have an answer. When you vacuum eggs of spiders and other insects, they can hatch inside your vacuum bag. I like to clean my vacuum after every deep cleaning for that purpose. mine is a bagless cleaner. If you suck up a lot of spider eggs, simply dispose of your bag in a safe place... that is outside in a garbage can. I might even think of spraying insecticide inside the bag before disposal.


I try to stay away from chemicals because I have a chemical sensitivity and I believe they might be the cause of many illnesses one of which would be cancer. I'm trying to think of a natural substance you can use for this purpose. I've read that borax kills ants, but they would need to be alive to eat it and not in the egg stage of life. Some insects go through a pupa stage, and it might be helpful if that is the case.
