If only there was a foolproof way of keeping those bloodsucking insects away life would be so much more agreeable. Of course you can use repellent sprays, but how much easier it would be if we could just plant several common herbs that we use in the kitchen. Well it seems that there are seven plants that mosquitos do not like and so keep their distance. This idea comes from an article by Archit Tripathi which I found on the Wimp website.
I’m not, by any means, saying that I’m ready for the winter weather again… but I will say I’m getting a little sick of getting eaten alive by mosquitos every time I step outside. Yes, I know I can put on some kind of bug repellant spray/ointment, but those always smell really funky. Luckily, there are several great plants that work to clear the area of these pesky blood-suckers?naturally. While the benefits are greatly compounded?by crushing the leaves of these plants, just having them around also seems to do the trick!
