Garage – The Rodent and Pests Favorite Entrance

  • Use the natural pest repellent Stay Away pouches to prevent infestation before it begins. Stay Away repels rodents, ants, spiders, moths, and beetles naturallynatural rodent repellent

Bedroom – Spiders Haven

  • Remove spider webs and dust from walls and ceilings to send creepy crawlers packing
  • Prevent spiders from spinning new webs by Spraying a vinegar mixture on the walls. (1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup vinegar, 2 TBSP liquid dish soap, & 20 drops of thyme oil)
  • Keep Stay Away Spiders in your bedroom to keep spiders out for good.

Basement – The mouse-prone place

Mice and rats like moisture, repair leaky pipes or dripping appliances to keep the moisture and musty smell away that attracts rodents and bugs. A dehumidifier helps too.

Kitchen – 50% of rodents live here

Yuck! Just because you don’t see the rodents doesn’t mean they aren’t in your kitchen. 21 million homes have rodents in their kitchen, once you notice, it’s too late.

  • Prevent rodent infestation in your kitchen by keeping your kitchen clean with soap, vinegar, and lemons.
  • Place a Stay Away Rodent repellent pouch in your kitchen to prevent pests from even trying to get into your kitchen.

Pantry – Moth’s paradise

It only takes 1 female pantry moth or Indian meal moth who lays 300 eggs at a time to cause a moth infestation.

I like the pouch pods because I can easily hang the repellents exactly where I want without looking like a repellent.
