Rasmuson said there are some home remedies to help control the insect problem, including the following methods:
Preparing a bowl of water and mixing it with dish soap can help attract and trap mosquitoes.

Mixing apple cider vinegar with dish soap will help catch and catch flies.
Preparing a beer bowl is good for catching slugs.
Rubbing the peppermint oil is useful to keep spiders away.
