Pah … be gone pests

Dear Geeky, My leafy vegies are growing but the white moths have appeared. What should I plant to repel them? @sciencenewsgeek

Dear @sciencenewsgeek, I like your style. Why Google and get sensible answers like onion, rosemary and sage when you can read something tailored to you just here?

And seeing as your name has ‘geek’ in it too, I’ll make an extra special effort to help.

Here’s what I recommend to get rid of the moths.

Forget companion planting. Play your vegies Justin Bieber and One Direction at high volume. That should scare off the little white buggers.
