Well, lavender smells nice! It only makes sense to have this lovely plant inside your house. But can it really repel pests? Gross bugs are attracted to nice smells. But you’ll be surprised to know lavender can in fact scare off mice, moths and beetles. While you’ll probably like the scent of lavender, these bugs find it irritating and keep away from it.
Marigolds have long been used as a repellent for a number of pests. If you have squash or tomato plants in your garden, you will find a lot of pests settling there. Planting marigolds will help keep them away.
While cats adore catnip, most pests hate it. It’s especially good against mosquitos. You can use the plant leaves to make a spray or rub them directly on your skin so that mosquitos won’t want to take a bite out of you.
Chrysanthemums are great for repelling pests. They can get rid of lice, ants, ticks and roaches. They can even help keep out bed bugs. This is because chrysanthemums produce a neurotoxin, which insects absolutely hate. Most insecticides you find on the market have the same neurotoxin.
