You are not bothered by the bugs in the outdoors much. Even when you are, you don't really mind it knowing that you are not staying in the outdoors for an entire life. But let's be practical, we all are bothered by the bugs in the outdoor as well as in the indoor. And there are solutions to be at peace in both situations, whether you are enjoying a picnic outside or cherishing with your family in the indoor. This blog, however, is dedicated to some practical, handy and very easy DIY solutions to rid your indoor of bugs. The first is about making a bug fogger while the other about insect repellent. So let's begin.

Bug Fogger and Bug Repellent

DIY Carbon Dioxide Bug Fogger  

- As the Summer begins and the windows are more often opened than closed, go to the nearest store and grab some dry ice. Execute the procedure in the day time and preferably when kids are not at home. Fill a bucket of cold water and place it in whatever area you want to be fogged. The measurement for water and dry ice as per area goes like this;
200 sq feet = 6-10 cups water
200 sq feet = 1 lb dry ice
In case the area is larger than that, make the measurements accordingly by adding 3-5 cups of water for every additional 100 sq feet and 0.5-1 lb dry ice for every additional square foot.

- After placing the water tub in the room to be fogged, close the windows and cover your face properly with a mask. Now add dry ice to the water. It will start to fog, producing concentrated Carbon Dioxide. Place a fan in one corner of the room in order to circulate the fog. Once the procedure begins, leave the room. Give the process 10 minutes to 1 hour in order to let the fog penetrate into all corners completely. Return to the room when the fog has evaporated. If the room appears slightly foggy, open the doors and windows.
This procedure will kill all the bugs hiding anywhere in the room and will abstain the bugs from buzzing in your indoor for a sufficient time period.

DIY Salt Insect Repellent 

You might have observed that most insects are seen on the floor. Primarily for the reason that the floor has some fallen pieces of eatables which the insects need to pick and then drop to their homes made in the room corners. In order to make the floor unsuitable for them to crawl on and give your guests the impression, you don't keep enough cleanliness, make use of your mop. As you mop the floor, add a spoonful of salt in the water. This salt-water mopped floor will repel bugs and insects from crawling on the floor and will eventually repel them from coming to your home since they would know you are not welcoming.
