With the summer months fast approaching, many of us are getting the bug spray and citronella candles ready. Mosquitoes can invade your lawn and home in a matter of hours, and you'll be forced to wait out the days indoors - but not anymore!
With these helpful plants, you'll be able to enjoy your time outside and get the most out of these few magical months.
This solution comes as no surprise to those of us who try candles, spray and sticks to keep away mosquitoes in the summer! Citronella is a main ingredient in many forms of repellent, but now you can save yourself some time and money by planting this in your yard.
The smell of the grass will keep mosquitoes away and you'll be able to enjoy time outside without bathing in repellent.
Even though basil taste great in meals and smells wonderful planted around our homes, mosquitoes tend to think differently! Simply place a few basil plants near your entryways and living spaces - soon you'll be able to enjoy a pest-free home.
Fresh mint is perfect for ice cream, tea and smoothies, but it's also perfect for warding away mosquitoes. Avoid planting mint in your garden - it grows rapidly and can steal precious nutrients away from your other plant. Instead, trying growing mint in smaller individual pots all over your home.
