Recent rains are WONDERFUL for our gardens and landscapes, but they also bring unwanted pests:  mosquitoes. Before dousing yourself and your gardens with chemical sprays, learn about using plants and other natural solutions that help repel these vampires and look beautiful in your outdoor space.

Several edible and useful plants repel mosquitoes AND grow well in our area. Pro tip:  fragrant foliage needs to be touched or brushed against to release their mosquito-repelling scents. Place these plants near walkways, doorways, and patios where you can brush them gently with a broom to release their mosquito-repelling fragrance.

  1. Love the Mosquitoe Beater in spray and granules.
    It works, even with all the rain and it smells nice, too.
