Why don't you make "insect repellent spray" or "potpourri" with the herbs you grow yourself and take measures against insects while enjoying your time at home?
Some herbs have a pleasant scent to us humans, but some have scents that insects and animals don't like.
This time, I would like to introduce three recommended herbs that have insect repellent effects.
If you plant it in windows or entrances, it will be difficult for mosquitoes to enter.
Effective insects: mosquitoes, flies, etc.
Ground planting/potted planting
The refreshing scent has the effect of lowering the sensible temperature as well as insect repellent. It is an herb that is active in the summer.
Effective insects: mosquitoes, cockroaches, ants, rats
It has the effect of avoiding insects attached to seedlings such as cucumbers and pumpkins.
You can also enjoy it as a dried flower and as an interior decoration.
Effective insects…Scarab beetle, leaf beetle
Ground plant, potted plant, potpourri
In addition to the ones introduced here, there are many herbs that are said to have various insect repellent effects.
In the plant shop, we have established an insect repellent corner. Please find your favorite and grow it.
