0 10

Lemongrass is a tasty addition to a lot of recipes. But humans aren’t the only ones who love it. In fact, several varieties of pests also love to munch on a tangy lemongrass leaf. Spider mites and aphids are especially known to be commonly attracted to this delicious grass.

These itty bitty pests might seem less harmful than others might be, but they can easily kill a plant. If you notice these insects invading your plant’s space, you can plant other things around it, like delicious daisies, which can draw the bugs away from the grass. You can also use a strong hose to spray the pests off of the plants. Consider these tactics to save your lemongrass, since it is a go-to plant if you have a mosquito problem. Growing it is also known to deter snakes from a garden or yard. “As any other plant that emits a strong scent, lemongrass can disorient snakes and make it difficult for them to hunt,” Nicole Carpenter of Black Pest Prevention told Homes and Gardens
