Repels: Tomato hornworms , Squash bugs , Cabbage loopers , Spider mites & Aphids
It’s a well-known herb all over the world and it’s widely used in culinary. A proof of its healing properties can be the fact that the gladiators in Ancient Roman Empire used to eat dill in order to be strong and tenacious. However, one of the oldest mentions of the herb’s name is in the Bible. You guessed it right – dill is an invaluable helper in the battle with different vegetable pests – tomato hornworms, aphids, spider mites, cabbage loopers and squash bugs, to name a few. The fennel kind, on the other hand, keeps slugs and snails at distance.
