Mosquito Repelling Plants!

By Idelle, July 8, 2014

Did you know that you can repel mosquitos with the following plants: Rosemary, Horsemint, Marigold, Lemon Balm, Ageratum, Cintronella, Catnip, Basil, Lemon Thyme and Lavender? Wow! I don’t know how effective these are, as I have many planted in my garden and pots, but those pesky mosquitos are still hanging around – perhaps I need to plant all of these for it to work! No matter, all of these plants are great to have in the garden for beauty, eating/spicing up food, so I’ll keep them and hope that those pesky skeeters will find another yard to play in!
