How To Plant A Pest Control Garden

Even though many people like the taste and smell of herbs, most bugs are repelled by them. This is good news since herbs are reasonably easy to grow and can be stuck on a deck or in your yard. Some types of flowers can also keep bugs away while giving your garden a beautiful look. Plants can be the answer for you to have a pest-free garden. As we all know, pests can cause infestation which will not only damage your property and health but can also give inconveniences to your daily living. Having flowers and herbs, which are good repellents, are solutions to pest problems in the garden or the whole property. If you want to keep your garden free from any pests, then you have to know what you should plant. Here are some types of herbs and flowers you can consider for your garden.

Types Of Herbs

Multiple herbs keep pests away, but we will only be naming a few in this article. Basil is an essential herb because it repels mostly house flies and mosquitoes. House flies are a nuisance to any home, and no one wants them landing on your food if you’re at a cookout. Mosquitoes are essential to get rid of because they can carry different diseases from one host to the next. You can plant basil in your garden or keep some on your deck so you don’t have annoying pests near you.

Lavender is another herb that smells great and keeps some pests away. They are easy to keep alive in a garden. Plant some in a pot on your deck for a sweet smell and natural insect repellent. Mint is another herb that can be used in food and drinks and to keep insects away. Mint is a simple herb you can grow around your home or cut some off and keep in your house.

Another herb you can plant in your garden is the lemon thyme. This herb can help in repelling mosquitoes which are known to be the most dangerous animal in the world. Lemon thyme can be planted in shallow and rocky soil and sunny locations. Leaving the herb alone will not deter those mosquitoes; you have to bruise the leaves for the chemicals to be released by cutting some stems.

Plant The Garden

Even if you have never planted a garden before, do not be intimidated. There are enough articles, videos, and books to make sure your garden can stay alive all year long. You just have to make sure you water them correctly and make sure the ones that don’t need too much sun aren’t in direct sunlight all the time. Go to your local farmers market to buy the plants so you can find the most organic ones. The ones in most department stores already have a lot of pesticides in them and may die faster. If you go to the farmers market, you also have the opportunity to talk to the gardener who originally planted these flowers and herbs and can give you great advice on how to keep them alive. Everyone has a green thumb if they just follow the right directions.

Knowing when to plant those herbs and flowers can help you since there are some plants which don’t need too much sunlight. Finding the right timing can help the plants to continue living and knowing how to plant the garden will help you achieve your goal. Learning the dos and don’ts will prevent you from making mistakes. Also, seeking the help of local farmers is a good idea as you don’t only learn how to plant, but you will also incur lots of knowledge on how you can maintain a healthy and pest-free garden.

If these herbs and flowers just don’t seem to keep the bugs away enough give your local pest exterminator a call and they can help with any pest need you may have today.
