Natural Bug Repellents

Thank you Ally at The Gerston Institute!

She has written an excellent article especially for me!

Okay, not really, but especially for people LIKE me who are driven nearly bonkers fighting the pesky insects in South Carolina in the summertime.

Fleas, mosquitoes, gnats, bees, roaches, and the list goes on and on. I know we need our precious bees, but I don't want them hanging around my door and entering my home with me because frankly, I'd have to leave and let them have the place.

On the other hand, I do not like using poisonous, toxic substances.

I am always ready and willing to work with natural remedies.

Did you know that Catnip repels cockroaches?

The others include:

  • Lemon Balm
  • Citronella
  • Lavender
  • Marigolds
  • Peppermint


PS: If you're looking for some inspiration on what to do with some of these plants, specifically the marigolds, head over to Yellow Flowers and Some Bargain Pots.
