The strong aroma emitted by onions disorients and confuses these pests, making it difficult for them to locate and attack the plants. Additionally, marigolds can be beneficial to onions as well. The scent of marigolds acts as a deterrent, reducing the egg-laying activity of the onion maggot fly. This can help prevent infestations and protect the onions from damage caused by these flies.
