Natural Mosquito Repelling Planters
We’ve tried so many mosquito repelling products over the years with mixed results I kept seeing & hearing about plants that deter the little pests and liked the idea of using a natural not chemical deterrent so I figured why not give them a try…
These all work kind of…but the idea of a natural product is very appealing ~
This was one of my husband’s brilliant ideas to keep the deck mosquito free…it worked just not really attractive or safe...
For my planters I used lemon grass, lemon verbena, peppermint, catnip & scented geraniums...added bonus you can make tea with most of them :) other plants with repelling powers are lavender, basil, rosemary, bee balm & mint I'll be adding a few of these to my next planter and around the deck ~
I was skeptical but they worked as well as most of the products we’ve tried in the past at keeping the surrounding area mosquito free ~ I’ll definitely continue using these types of plants in planters and around the deck ~
