Bracken Fern
Bracken Ferns often grow under oaks, pines, hickories, maples, and beech trees are frequently seen growing with asters, sarsaparilla, violets, oak fern, and bunchberry plants. Many animals and insects won't eat Bracken because of chemicals in it that make them sick. 

Medical Uses
Insect bites reliever: Rub the fern sap on to the bite area. Works well on gnat bites.
Insect repellent: Place fern leafs in and around bedding like under a mattress, or in clothes, as the aroma masks the human scent as well as scares of insects like mosquito.
