Mosquitoes are notoriously annoying and dangerous which is why entire industries are dedicated to keeping them away from our homes.
If you’ve already got your flyscreens in place over your doors and windows, there are plants that you can use to keep insects away from other areas such as your garden.
1. Citronella – this has got to be one of the best and most popular insect repelling plant
2. Catnip or catmint – this is apparently the most effective
3. Marigolds – good for repelling all types of bugs not just mosquitoes.
4. Lemonbalm – part of the mint family, this perrenial plant is also known as horsemint.
