8 Plants that Repel Bugs, Insects, and Pests
I don’t know about you but I HATE bugs!
They just freak me out! It really doesn’t matter what kind of bug- roaches, silverfish, spiders, mosquitos, fleas, beetles…. You name it and I HATE it! Especially bed bugs! I’ve never experienced bed bugs before but I was watching 20/20 a while back and they were doing some kind of expose on bed bugs in hotels and I’ve been freaked out ever since! The mere thought of them makes my skin crawl!!!!
Probably the most well known repellent….citronella can easily be found everywhere during the spring and summer months. You can use the plant or even the essential oil….I personally prefer Young Living Essential Oils because they’re all natural, pure grade, quality oils that we use for all sorts of ailments at home. You can read more about Young Living Oils here.
