Asparagus acts as a repellent for nematodes. Basil is effective in repelling whiteflies, mosquitoes, spider mites, and aphids. Additionally, basil attracts bees, which enhances pollination, improves the health of tomatoes, and enhances their flavor. Dill creates an environment that makes it challenging for cutworms to lay their eggs and also supports parasitic wasps that prey on pest caterpillars. Lastly, thyme reduces the egg-laying activity of armyworms.
