Salt As bed bugs are said to convey disease, the following recipe is given from old-timers for getting rid of them. It is this: Sprinkle their haunts freely with salt. Coal oil or gasoline is probably more effective, but it is well to have two strings to one’s bow. Also powdered borax blown in the cracks where vermin lodge is said to drive them away, this applying especially to cockroaches.
