Repel Insect Pests with Strategic Planting

If you are bothered with pests, there is some natural remedies to repel. You can plant peppermint, spearmint, lavender, or pennyroyal around the base of your house, as well as, other places. This will repel mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, mice or other rodents and keeps down spiders. It will take time for the plants to spread, but once they do, the pests can be controlled, and offers other benefits as well.

I have done this for years and it works, and makes wonderful relaxing tea. Gives a great fragrance outside when it rains.
