Ever think your herbs you use for cooking can get rid of your bugs?

Thinking about gardening this summer, but do not want the variety of bugs attacking your plants? Well there is a solution and it’s not using pesticides it is using kitchen ingredients. Plants have been around for millions of years and have certain natural chemicals that make them resistant to some bugs. However, as gardeners may know there are some bugs that still come around no matter what the plant may be. What researchers have found is when you plant a certain type of plant that you do not want to attract bugs, you can plant a second type of metabolism that may be found in your kitchen which are herbs. Someone who may be used to cooking spaghetti from scratch may use rosemary in their recipe. As it turns out it helps when you use the same thing for gardening as well. Other natural herbs used to help keep the pests away are thyme, oregano, basil, and lavender. These are just some suggestions for those gardeners out there, but if you feel like you cannot get rid of a pesky bug do not hesitate to call your local pest control company.
