Flea Control Plants

Flea Control PlantsFollowing is a list of flea-control plants you can develop in your backyard to help avoid an infestation. Since the beginning, fleas have been a burden on animals and humans. While many chemicals repel these distressing pests, a more natural alternative resides among us. Although these plants are indeed flea control plants, some may be toxic to pets, animals, and humans. Always perform research on any plant you intend to place on your property.
