What herb plant or plants can I grow indoors to help get rid of and keep away fruit flies? I want to get a rectangular planter with a few herbal plants to fit on my kitchen windowsill and help repel fruit flies. Every September we get a bunch of annoying fruit flies and I constantly have to trap them. I keep don't buy any fruit this time of year because it attracts them and I hate putting my tomatoes in the fridge. Also, when my husband and I sit and relax in the evenings after dinner, we have a couple beers and have to keep the drinks covered or fruit flies sit on the lids. Which herb do you suggest?
