Can you believe Mother Nature has provided some natural insect repellents to help us survive the onslaught of bugs as the seasons change?
Mosquitoes and house flies seem to be the biggest problem in our homes and there are some effective and natural ways of keeping them out.
Plants to consider keeping within your home and on your patio/ balcony that actually repel these pests are basil, citronella and peppermint. The basil and peppermint are also perfect to add to your food and add a beautiful aroma and aesthetic to your home.
Alternatively if you don’t have a green thumb and aren’t confident you can keep these plants alive, an easier way to keep insects out of your home is having your doors and windows covered with insect screens.
