How To Use Garlic To Get Rid Of Roly-Poly Bugs Around The House
Though roly-poly bugs don't harm humans or contaminate food with disease, they can be a bit of a nuisance. If you don't want them in your house, get rid of them using garlic.
Crush one tablespoon's worth of garlic, which instigates a chemical reaction between its inner and outer cell wall layers, producing a noxious scent that repels these bugs.
Pour a quart of water into
a spray and sprinkle your crushed garlic inside. Mix well before spraying a mist of the garlic concoction on infected areas in your home.
Spray especially in damp areas, as these critters seek water to keep their shells wet. You can also spray in areas where they enter your home, such as vents and foundation cracks.
Roly-pollies have a high sense of smell, so the spray will send them running and create a barrier that the bugs won't likely cross. It will hold up even after
the spray has dried.
