Natural Pest Repellants Include Dill and Basil

by Carl Jackson January 01, 2018

If you’re looking for a natural way to keep insects out of your garden, dill and basil are the best solution.

Growing herbs has so many benefits, including being an effective and healthy way to deter insect pests..

Basil for example is a great companion for tomatoes and attracts bees which help to pollinate tomatoes.

Basil also repels whitefly and experts say it even makes tomatoes better flavoured and larger.

If you want to attract bees to your garden, consider planting bergamot, garlic chives, thyme and marjoram. Attracting bees to your garden will result in a more beautiful garden because the insects will pollinate the flowers.

And once you have your openings covered with insect screens, you don’t have to worry about insects finding their way into the house.
