What Will Happen If You Put Cinnamon Sticks In Your Garage
Garages are a gathering place for pests all year round, but an effective repellent for insects and other animals is likely already in your kitchen cabinet: cinnamon sticks.
Cinnamon is more affordable than traditional pest repellents, and you won't have to worry about breathing in harmful fumes or accidentally coming into contact with harsh chemicals.
The spice contains a component called eugenol that is used in many insect repellents. It releases a strong aroma that pests can't stand without emitting dangerous fumes.
Identify places where pests are likely to enter or hide, such as corners, baseboards, windows, and doors. Then, place cinnamon sticks in these locations to keep pests away.
Lay down enough sticks to release a strong aroma, which will deter them from entering. You’ll likely end up going through quite a few sticks, so purchase them
in bulk.
Many common pests don't stand a chance against cinnamon sticks, such as roaches, mosquitoes, spiders, and centipedes. Ants are better deterred with cinnamon oil.
