PLANTS AND FLEAS
Like all plants in the mint family, pennyroyal has insect repelling properties. It is especially effective in repelling fleas. Use it to rub pet's fur during the summer months when these pests are a problem.
PLANTS AROUND THE HOUSE
If you cannot identify plants from gardening and houseplant books, nor from field guides to wild plants, take cuttings or photos (clear color photos including close-ups of leaves and branches, as well as a distance shot showing the entire plant) to a plant nursery (a real nursery, not the plant section in the supermarket, Wal-Mart or Target, etc.) Plant identification is something that should be done before exposing your pets to a plant, not after the plant has been ingested and you are trying to find out if it will kill your pet or not!
