Banish Centipedes From Your Home With One Easy Essential Oil Trick
If you find yourself succumbing to a freshly launched attack from an army of centipedes, you can deploy a tactic with a handy ingredient: tea tree essential oil.
However, you can even opt for peppermint and lavender essential oils if you don't like the scent of tea tree oil or prefer to use something less harmful.
Simply dab some essential oil on a cloth or a cotton ball and place them in the infested area, or spray the area with a mixture of about 1 cup water to 25 drops of the oil.
Since these critters have
a heightened sense of
smell, the strong smell of concentrated essential oils will overwhelm them. So you can mix and match scents per your preference.
