Summer is great, but not the bugs that come along with it. They are often drawn by your front porch lights. They are a nuisance and an eyesore. If you are tired of them, there is a sure-fire way to get rid of them, as described below.

Step 1 - Gather Ingredients

Get ground cloves, a bay leaf, nutmeg, and caraway seeds. Put them in a zip top bag and shake them up. No measurements are needed here, just a pinch of each is needed.

Step 2 - Add Holes

Poke holes into this bag, small enough to keep your contents from spilling.

Step 3 - Hang the Bag

Hang this bag near the light, though not too close, and there will be no more bugs.
