    Hi Brenda: Mix warm water with a citrus-scented detergent, like an orange or lemon dish soap. Add a splash of mouthwash to the mixture, and then shake it well. Put in spray bottle, and start spraying your plants and the walls of your house with it. Bugs will leave these areas alone.


    Good luck

    • Hi Brenda, nsect spray on your door: Spray your entire door with an all-natural insect spray. This will keep them off your door and potentially kill them as well.
    • Blow them away with a fan: Turn up the ceiling fan to keep them from flying inside the house.
    • Light some mosquito candles: Light a bunch of mosquito repellent candles inside your house or in your porch to drive them away.
    • Make your own insect spray: Did you know you can make your own insect spray? Yup, you can. Mix warm water with a citrus-scented detergent, like an orange or lemon dish soap. Add a splash of mouthwash to the mixture, and then shake it well. Put in spray bottle, and start spraying your plants and the walls of your house with it. Bugs will leave these areas alone.
    • Use a vacuum cleaner: Sucking them in with a vacuum cleaner is probably the easiest way to get rid of love bugs, and fun too! Use this in confined areas to control swarming and piling.
    • Always keep your lawn mowed: Love bug larvae grow in thatch. Thatch is that layer of living and dead organic matter that occurs between the green matter and the soil surface of your grass. So this means you need to cut your grass regularly to prevent it from growing long and producing too much thatch. When you mow, cut off only the top one-third of the grass to reduce possible breeding grounds for love bugs.
