Natural and Cheap Ways to Get Rid of Bugs In the House

Many years ago, I got these flying bugs in my house that I tended to find them in my cabinets most of the time. No matter what methods I tried, I couldn’t get rid of them. Somehow I had this conversation with my mother-in-law and she asked if I tried bay leaves. That was the first time I heard of this. So, I thought that it would not hurt to give it a try. Viola! The bugs were gone.

All I did was to put one to two dry bay leaves in each cabinet. If you want to, a leaf a shelf. It doesn't have any smell or fragrance. In a couple of days, you will see the results.

Nanny’s Chicken Soup

Funny that in Chinese culture, we are told to stay away from any chicken dishes when you are sick. But here in America, a bowl of chicken soup can basically heal everything.

After living here for more than 20 years, I found that chicken soup works every time. (Maybe our body reacts differently with different physical environment.) I even freeze some containers of this soup for emergency need.

Let's wrap up this month with this Bible verse.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." ~ John 1:1-5
