Suffering from a pest infestation? There are many home remedies, but one effective one is mixing sugar with borax. They will come for the sugar and get killed by the borax. To create the mixture, get a jar the size of a quart and mix one cup borax and one of sugar. Poke holes through the lid to allow you to sprinkle it around the foundation and baseboards.
Do you have a mice problem? Try using mint. Just plant mint all around your foundation. This makes your home less than desirable to mice. If mice are already a problem, you may want to place mint leaves in the areas that are affected. While this will usually do, make sure you also use the freshest mint leaves.
