Natural Repellents

Mosquitoes avoid the aromas of numerous plants, including:

  • Citronella

  • Lemon eucalyptus

  • Rosemary

  • Cedar mulch

  • Catnip

  • Peppermint

  • Tulsi

  • Lemon thyme

You can discourage mosquitoes by planting these varieties around your property. We recommend placing them near areas where you enjoy spending the most time, such as porches and decks—and walkways to and from those places. These plants are helpful deterrents and beautiful.
