Q: I am on the lookout for some non-toxic ways to get rid of pests (bugs, flies, ants, aphids, spiders, cockroaches, mosquitos). I don't want to be spraying toxic fumes around the house, not to mention the fact that I think it's inhumane. But then again, I also don't want these little creatures to make themselves at home in my house either!
Any recommendations or tips would be helpful!

Editor: Lily, funny you should bring this up! We've had a few other requests for non-toxic ways to treat pests at home and we'll be working on a few posts for our How-To month in February! For now, we came across these aromatherapy sachets available through Dynamo House or Evoshop in Australia. Each "Goodbye Friends" sachet contains 24 sheets soaked with fragrant essential oils that are nature's own insect repellants. There are currently sachets available to combat ants, cockroaches, moths, and silverfish. We've never tried them ourselves, but we like the idea!
Anyone else have suggestions or tips to share?
