There are some odours that turn off your pets such as lavender, citrus, and garlic. Mixing these in the water and misting your plants will have your pets turning their nose from your greenery. Whatever you do, stray away from vinegar! Some people believe vinegar diluted with water is a solution, but it harms leaves more than saving them.
