In the summertime, it's not uncommon to find mosquitoes, flies, and spiders making themselves at home in your abode. The standard response might be to reach for the insect repellent, but do you really want to spray chemicals all over your living spaces, especially in areas like your kitchen? An alternative solution is to introduce certain harmless garden plants into your home that naturally repel these unwelcome guests. Not only will these plants brighten up your home, but they'll also keep the bugs at bay and, in some instances, provide fresh herbs for cooking. Here's our curated list of indoor-friendly plants that can help you keep the critters out.


Don't believe pest control has to reek of harsh chemicals. With a beautiful lavender plant in your house, you can deter moths, fleas, flies, and mosquitoes with its pleasant aroma. Plus, it's a stunning plant that bugs absolutely despise.
