Q.Marigolds As Pest Control

Zone 49505 | Dawlface added on June 23, 2020 | Answered

My poor beans have been getting attacked by hungry critters stunting their growth. Before I construct a fence with chicken wire, would planting a few marigolds help protect them?

It can help from insect damage but will not stop any other creature from eating them. Both methods can help, since chicken wire will not prevent insect damage.

I would use both methods in combination to control the issue at hand.
