Chrysanthemums act as a natural pest deterrent to ants, bedbugs, fleas, lice, mites, roaches, slugs, and ticks.

 

When it’s time to start planning your garden and landscaping projects, you may want to consider adding plants that have natural pest control properties. While these methods rarely keep all those pesky insects at bay, when they are used in conjunction with pest management, they can result in a more natural way to eliminate pest from your home and yard.  As a leader in natural, organic pest management, we at Covenant Pest Control recommend adding plants that naturally deter unwanted pests.

 

Insect repelling plants are a great companion to professional pest control especially natural, organic pest control. Plants not only add to the beauty of your landscaping, but they also act as a barrier of protection against unwanted pests.

 

Arrange potted plants on your deck or other high-traffic areas. Hang baskets of geraniums on your front porch. Protect your lawn and garden with fresh herbs and colorful chrysanthemums or marigolds.
