Fresh Mint, Valued For Its Medicinal & Fresh-Smelling Fragrance.

Fresh Mint, An Aromatic Plant. Valued For Its Medicinal & Fresh-Smelling Fragrance.

Insects are the most numerous species on Earth. In fact, there are over 200 million insects living on our planet right now. They are arthropods whose body is divided into parts and covered in exoskeleton that can grow into a shell. They also have specialized extremities, antennas, and often, wings. They are mostly small, except the beetles that are of major size.

There’s a wide spectrum of insect species, some of which feed on plants, while others on meat.

Although we mostly see them as harmful, they are actually very important for maintaining the biological cycle of nature.

Here we present a completely safe method of getting rid of insects and rodents. It’s nothing like the insecticides you buy over the counter, but it’s equally, if not more efficient.

This all-natural repellent will also make your home smell clean and fresh.

What you need is fresh mint, an aromatic plant that’s valued both for its medicinal properties and fresh-smelling fragrance.

Method:

The method of preparation couldn’t be simpler. What you do is prepare a well-concentrated mint tea. Store this in a spray bottle then spray every corner of your house, particularly the door corners and the window rims. If there’s something insects can’t stand, it’s the smell of fresh mint. This natural bug repellent will keep all sorts of insects, as well as rodents, away from your house while providing your home with a fresh- smelling aroma.

A wonderful plant in the struggle against the plagues

The most important role of insects is the one of helping organic matter to decompose. They are also the most important pollinizers of plants that are both ecologically and economically important.

All this aside, insects are not something you’d want to see anywhere near you, especially not in your home.

Haiku Stairs (Stairway to Heaven). The island of Oʻahu, Hawaii

Haiku Stairs:

The Haʻikū Stairs, also known as the Stairway to Heaven or Haʻikū Ladder, is a steep hiking trail on the island of Oʻahu, Hawaii. The total 3,922 steps span along Oahu’s Ko’olau mountain range.

“The Stairway To Heaven” — is one of the most extreme and beautiful hikes Hawaii (and America) has to offer.

For the past 26 years, the hike up the 4,000-step ladder has also been illegal, but that hasn’t stopped people — dozens a day — from making the trek up and down the steel steps that were once operated by the Coast Guard to catch a glimpse of the view at the top of Puu Keahi a Kahoe on the island of Oahu.The stepladder was built in 1943 during World War II to “provide access to buildings at the top of the ridge, used as transmission stations,” according to a tourism site called Best Places Hawaii. 

The ladder scales “nearly vertical” heights over 2,500 feet from Haiku Valley to the top of Puu Keahi a Kahoe, so high that there are points in the hike where the peaks rise above clouds.

It was a popular hiking trail in the 1980s, operated by the coast guard, Though the hike is illegal, tourists (and some locals) attempt to scale the Stairway To Heaven every day.The Honolulu Board of Water Supply, The Huffington Post reports, “has jurisdiction over the hike and requires that anyone who goes up it sign waivers and present a $1 million liability insurance policy.”

In early 2013, a group formed to petition the city to reopen the stairs to the public, but the stairs remain closed.
