What plants are best to prevent pests and ants in a garden?

6 years ago

I was reading about how to get rid of ants in a garden and came across this article.

Best Ways To Get Rid of Ants in a Garden

It lays out natural was to get rid of an infestation with borax and other traps. Prevention with forming a barrier with Diatomaceous Earth and other natural solutions but mentioned “Plant pest repelling plants like Marigolds that repel ants and other pests. Planting alliums and catmint will repel aphids which is a source of attraction for ants.“

Which got me thinking about pest repellent plants. What are the best pest repellent plants for different insects? Would forming a barrier or layering these plants into my garden make a big impact? What’s the best approach?
