- Catnip repels ants, Japanese beetles, and cockroaches. Catnip plants can grow as high as three feet and have small white or lilac flowers. There are several varieties of Catnip. Some varieties attract cats more than others. So, one thing you would need to decide is if you want a plant that attracts cats. If you have a fenced yard and cats, this is a plant they will enjoy having in your yard.
- Chamomile repels flying insects. Chamomile will add small flowers that look like daisies to your landscape design and usually grows to about two feet tall. If you are allergic to Ragweed, let us know since we will not want to plant Chamomile since it might aggravate your allergies.
- Chrysanthemums are flowers that repel roaches, ants, Japanese beetles, ticks, fleas, and silverfish. Ticks are one of the bugs that thrive in warm weather and the mild winter means there will be more ticks this spring. Chrysanthemums are a great addition to your landscape. This plant comes in multiple colors and is easy to grow.
