while sitting in my backyard- is there a plant?
Joanne: maybe this will help
The mosquito breeds in water, after a rain, emptying the containers that hold water is a must. The mosquitoes can breed in a teaspoon full of water.
Thank you, there are shrubs & puddles. Heard geraniums deter mosquitoes?
I have loads of geraniums, it doesn’t seem to bother the mosquitos. There are products available like mosquito dunks and granuals, that will bother the mosquitoes. Iowa is is mostly agricultural, and the only state to have 2 rivers bordering it, the Missouri and the Mississippi. Lots of places for the skeeters to breed.
Here are some plants you can try.
In addition to the plants, I have 2 patio fans. Set on each end of the patio facing into the seating and dining area. Low setting. Creates enough breeze that they stay away.
