6 Steps 2 A Longer Life
Organic Food, What You Need To Know
Mint Vs Insects
Mint is an economical and effective, nontoxic insect deterrent. Particularly useful in keeping mosquitoes, ants, and flies at bay, mint can be used and prepared in numerous ways to fend off in pests in your home and yard.
Tip: Growing your own mint will save you even more money. However, be aware that mint is an invasive plant and can take over an area very quickly. Plant mint in a large coffee can with the bottom cut out to keep it from taking over your garden.
Begin by placing mint leaves in several sachet bags. Place these around your house, especially in areas where flies are particularly problematic. Break the mint leaves when placing them in the bag to release some of the natural oils and scent that keep bugs away.
Crushed Mint Leaves
In places where ants are a problem, crush some dried mint leaves and sprinkle them around. You can also use mint tea bags if you do not have fresh mint.
Insect Repellant Spray
Create a homemade insect repellant using a ratio of five parts rubbing alcohol to one part peppermint oil. Spray this mixture on your body before going outdoors.
Alternatively, you can cut fresh leaves, peppermint leaves and citrus (orange or lemon) peels to make a deterrent. Place the pieces in a small pan covered with water and bring to a boil. Allow the mixture to sit overnight, and then in the morning, strain the liquid. Mix the mint-scented water with an equal part rubbing alcohol and put in a spray bottle to use as insect repellant.
Plant different varieties of mint in your yard or garden to keep mosquitoes away. Use bubblegum mint, hummingbird mint, and giant hummingbird mint plants in your landscaping as a natural repellant. When enjoying your yard or when mosquito problems are particularly bad, crush a few of the leaves on the plant to release the scent and oils.
Tip: Cut mint to the ground and cover with compost at the end of each growing season.
Protect Your Animals
Use mint on your cats and dogs to keep biting insects off of them. As usual, crush a few mint leaves to release the oils, and then rub the substance on your cat or dog’s fur before they go outside.
Mint is an effective and safe insect repellant. Use these different applications and see how you can keep bugs away without using harsh chemicals. As an added bonus, mint is a very pleasant smell alternative to chemical insect deterrents.
Latest From Our Blog
On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish.
Weekly Interview: Ibad
Peter: Hershel tell us about how you started to grow organic food?
Hershel: Well, first of all I’ve never been the farmer type. My father had a farm and he wanted me to work hard like him so one day he can leave the farm to me.
Peter: Did you enjoy it at first?
Hershel: Of course not! I was a young boy who just wanted to play with his friends and talk to girls…I was very shy so there wasn’t actually any girl talking (laughing)!
Peter: How did you start working with Organic Food LTD?
Hershel: I was approached by one of your colleagues at the Australian competition “Young Farmer”. We spoaked and he showed me that here are a lot of possibilites before us, that the market is not crowded at all and that we can open people’s eyes for the organic food.
Peter: What kind of food you are producing for our customers?
Hershel: At the beggining I started with potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers and very small amount of grapes. Now we operate on over 1500 acres and we produce over 200 different vegetables. Also we have another 200 acres only with fruits, forest fruits mainly – strawberries, blueberries and blackberries.
Peter: Did you breed any animals?
Hershel: Yes, we have pigs, cows – from which we get the best organic milk, we have also chickens.
