Poisoning indoor bugs can poison your cats if they eat the bugs, so I use other means of ridding my home of insect pests.
Since most insects have sensitive 'noses,' they can't tolerate certain strong herbs and spices.
I purchased little clay scent pots that I fill with Essential Oils to emit smells for an extended amount of time. Pennyroyal and most members of the Mint family are some of the best insect repellents.
I keep several bottles of these Essential oils in the house at all times, and continuously keep the Kitchen Garbage Can area filled with mint oil.
