The best insecticides of 2022

Cindy Sersig - These are amazing! When we lived in California, we had such a problem with ants and these traps worked so well in attracting and killing the ants.
Liz Pearce - These are quick, cheap, effective and non-toxic to boot.

Sara Marie - Try Diatomaceous Earth! Diatomaceous earth (DE) is not only inexpensive and effective; it's non-toxic to kids, birds, and pets. And it helps to sprinkle it in yard to help with fleas if you have pets.

Carol Mullins - Safe for the environment and targets specific pests directly on contact. The main ingredient is potassium salts. For gnats, mealy bug, spider mite and aphids. Avoid spraying on ornamental plants when pollinators are active, but good for houseplants all year.
