All The Ways You Can Use Baking Soda To Get A Handle On Unwanted Pests
Since centipedes are attracted to damp, hidden places like drains, leaves, and carpets, sprinkle baking soda to remove excess moisture that attracts centipedes.
If the pests are in the pipes, pour a mix of ½ cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar down the drain. The mixture will release carbon dioxide that eliminates the centipedes.
Repel hornworms by dusting baking soda directly onto their bodies or the eggs to kill them, or mix equal parts of flour and baking soda to create a deadly snack for them.
Mice and Rats
Baking soda kills rodents by creating a gas build-up in their body that they can't relieve. Simply mix the baking soda with a sugary substance to entice the pests.
Mix equal amounts of baking soda, sugar, and flour or cornmeal in a container, then add water and make the mixture into snack balls. Leave them in areas where rats frequent.
Cabbage Worms
Mix equal parts of baking soda and flour and dust it on your cabbages or other plants in the Barisca family to banish cabbage worms within two days of application.
Mix equal parts of baking soda and salt on a flea-ridden surface. Let it sit overnight, allowing the soda to dehydrate and kill fleas before vacuuming or sweeping the debris.
