As the warm weather approaches, another season is at our heels that we're not quite ready for—and neither are our pets. Flea and tick season is unfortunately upon us, and we'll do anything to protect our furry friends—and our homes—from these pests. While there are medications for animals and different kinds of sprays for your yard to keep fleas and ticks at bay, there's an all-natural way to repel these nuisances this season—and it'll boost your curb appeal, too.
Marigolds, a gorgeous yellow-colored flower, actually have the ability to naturally repel invasive pests like fleas and ticks, and you can buy a 6-pack of these blooms for $30 on Amazon—so what are you waiting for?
If you're purchasing these marigolds, remember that they need full sun—which is about six hours a day—and prefer a rich, drained soil. They're also pretty tolerant of droughts and high temperatures.
Not only do marigolds save your pets by repelling fleas and ticks, they also repel cabbage maggots, white flies, aphids, and other bugs that tend to attack other plants in your garden. This flower in particular also attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, so take advantage of this deal while it lasts.
