Pest Free Planting: 6 Plants That Naturally Repel Pest

Pest Free Planting: 6 Plants That Naturally Repel Pest

Warmer days and nights mean spending more time outdoors. Perhaps you have an outside patio or deck that you and your family enjoy summer meals on or simply late night chats. Either way, regardless of what region you live in you are going to encounter summer time pests such as mosquitoes! Mosquitoes are pests not only because they can bite and cause severe itch, but because they can carry diseases as well. Controlling mosquitoes is important, so perhaps you have invested in citronella candles and bug spray to keep them at bay. These are fine options and
typically effective, however you may be exposing yourself to nasty chemicals and fire hazards.
