Herb Garden To Keep Bugs Away


Have you noticed some unwanted bug activity in your home or on your property? Then you need to build an herb garden at your house. Bugs can show up at any time of the year, and once they like their environment they are extremely hard to get rid of.

If you want to try some home remedies for your pest control, the best way to keep a wide variety of bugs away is to have an herb garden. Herbs not only smell good, but can be used to make different meals and snacks.

Check out some herbs you can get for your home today and keep those bugs away.


This herb is known for helping people become rested or fall asleep at night. What most people don’t know about it is it helps keep certain bugs away, like fleas, flies, and mosquitoes. It gives off a great smell and can be planted outside or kept in a potted plant on your porch or deck. You could even pick some and put it in a vase in your home. This herb mixes well with other plants and can be added to potted plants to keep bugs away from them. Many people use the lavender essential oil in a diffuser in their home or put it directly on their skin. This is also a great way to use this herb, but the most potent way of getting it is through the natural plant. This herb can help repel bugs from ever getting in your home in the first place.


People recognize this herb when it’s paired with Italian dishes. This herb can be used for other purposes like keeping away flies and mosquitoes. Even though it is known to keep these bugs away it can also repel spiders, ticks, fleas, and ants. Basil is a nice herb to keep around your house for these purposes and for cooking. It is a great herb to add to pasta and on top of chicken or pork. You can either grow basil inside your home or keep it near your other plants outside. If it is around other vegetable growing plants it will help those vegetables have better flavor. You can pick this herb right off the stem and enjoy its delicious flavors. This plant will repel bugs from entering your home or even coming close to it.


Sometimes people forget about this herb because it doesn’t have as many uses as other herbs. Mint can help keep mosquitoes and other bugs away from you and your family. This herb can be kept inside or in your garden to make sure the bugs are not in it. Mint can be used to mix up a flavor of your favorite tea or lemonade. Some people even mix it in some water with cucumber. Mint can help other vegetables grow in your garden and keep bugs from eating away at it. This herb would be beneficial in any home to keep the bugs away and help your garden to grow.
