5 Plants To Repel Common Garden Pests

1. Lavender: This delightful-smelling and looking plant naturally wards off ants, mosquitoes, flies, fleas, moths, gnats, and spiders.

2. Marigolds: If you cultivate tomatoes, marigolds will become your new best buddy.

3. Garlic: Garlic is even more delicious when grown in your own yard than when purchased from a store.

4. Citronella Grass: Although citronella candles, which are odorous and repel

mosquitoes, are widely accessible, citronella grass is not as widely available.

5. Mint: Mint spreads so fast in your yard that it will soon take over. Mint repels insects as well.
