6 Plants That Naturally Repel Bugs
I am definitely a summer person. Throughout the entire winter, all I dream about is sitting out on my back deck at night with a glass of wine. However, I always seem to forget that during the warm weather, bugs are swarming both that glass of wine and myself. Fortunately, there are multiple different plants that naturally keep pests away. Plant them in your garden this spring to enjoy a pest-free summer in your outdoor spaces!
Rosemary plants naturally repel fleas and ticks (which is good for both you and your pets!).
Peppermint plants keep spiders, mosquitoes, and ants at bay.
Surprisingly enough, catnip plants are also mosquito deterrents!

Not only is basil a great herb for cooking, but it also deters mosquitoes and houseflies.
