4 Natural Bug Repellents in Gardening

2 Lavender

In the list of natural bug repellents, Lavender occupies the second place It is not only a good natural repellent against bugs in the garden, but also it has showed effective results against moths, home bugs, flies and mosquitoes.

Lavender has been utilized for quite a long time to add a charmingly sweet scent to homes and garment drawers. Despite the fact that individuals cherish the aroma of Lavender, mosquitoes, flies and other undesirable creepy crawlies don’t like it, which makes it a good pest control agent.

Placing tied bunches of Lavender in your home and garden will help in keeping flies and bugs away. On the other hand, planting it in the radiant regions of your garden or near the doors of your home will make those zones pest free. In addition to this, oil removed from the blossoms of Lavender also act as a mosquito repellent. Before going into your garden or yard, you can apply it on your uncovered skin.

Lemon grass is third in the list of natural bug repellents. Astonished? Yes you might be thinking that its attractive aroma and yummy taste would attract bugs, but the fact is that, lemongrass is closely related to citronella.

Citronella is one of the key ingredients in many pest control formulas. Citronella is a characteristic oil that is readily available in lemongrass. Spraying the solution of citronella on leaves of plants will control the bugs in the garden.

4 Mint

Mint is one of the best natural bug repellents in home and garden as well. In addition to repel, bugs, Mint is also known for its property as mosquito repellent. With a little effort, the plant’s sweet-smelling oils can be removed and mix with apple juice vinegar along with shabby vodka (or witch hazel). Then spray this mixture using a sprayer on the effected plants to control bugs in the garden. In my opinion, Mint is the most effective organic method for pest control in gardens as well as in homes.
