Hate Mosquitos? Plant These:

Lifestyle August 31, 2016

plants to fight mosquitos

How many mosquitos is a good number to have buzzing around you in your yard? I’m going to go out on a pest-control limb and guess zero or close to zero. So here are some plants you can plant in your house or in your yard in your attempt to dissuade pests like mosquitos from frequenting your residence:

  • Basil
  • Lemongrass
  • Lemon thyme
  • Lavender
  • Garlic
  • Catnip
  • Lemon balm
  • Marigold
  • Rosemary

Now these are not 100% scientifically proven, but many people say they work.

Other people have said that just having citronella growing is enough to keep mosquitos away (no mosquitos for the whole year, he said).

Another thing to note is that many of these plants have more than one version available to buy. That means that more aromatic versions may be more potent remedies for mosquitos.

Also, planting them upwind is probably a suggestion you might want to consider if you’re planting in your yard.
