Mosquito Repelling Plants
Fragrant, culinary and mosquito repelling.
Want to repel mosquitoes naturally? Many plants contain the oils used in organic mosquito treatments. Multi-purpose herbs are a great way. Choose from lavender, rosemary, lemon grass and more! Also, many fragrant perennials such as copper canyon daisy, turks cap and southern wax myrtle can help repel those pesky insects.

Ladybugs and Nematodes
Using beneficial insects as opposed to insecticides has many benefits. For example they have no detrimental effects on the environment since no pesticides can be leached into the soil or the water system. Also, beneficial insects will not harm other beneficial insects; they only go after nuisance pests. We carry lady bugs, which take care of soft bodied insects on plants like mites and aphids; and nematodes, which take care of lawn and garden soil pests like fleas and fire-ants.
