July 22 – Middletown 366

1819

Pest Control

To destroy Bed-Bugs.–Make a decoction of sassafras bark or root, not so strong as to stain the furniture, and scald the wainscoting of your rooms, once a year, and I will engage that a bug will never enter it. This I know from experience.  An Old Man.

To keep off Fleas.–Keep in or about your bed a sprig of Pennyroyal or put on your bed clothes a few drops of the essence. The smell of the Pennyroyal will keep off the fleas. This I know from experience.  Another Old Man.

From the Middlesex Gazette (Middletown, Conn.), Thursday, July 22, 1819.
