Mosquitoes are always annoying especially when they buzz around your ear when you sleep.
To deter further intrusion, most of us will use mosquito aerosols which can kill us in high concentrations.
So I scoured the Internet and found 5 plants that can repel mosquitoes.
Catnip is a perennial that's related to mint. Its aroma may attract feline friends, but it's that same scent that keeps mosquitoes away.
Marigolds are a popular plant with gardeners, but mosquitoes don't like them at all. The scent is rumored to deter mosquitoes, which we think makes this carefree annual even more attractive.
Ageratum, also known as flossflower and pussy foot, is an annual grown for its tiny blue blossoms. A relative of the sunflower, these pretty plants also send mosquitoes on their way.
2: Lemon Balm
The sweet, lemony scent of lemon balm makes it perfect for teas and wine. It's also perfect for keeping mosquitoes from lurking around.
The top plant for keeping mosquitoes out of your garden is one of the most popular herbs around: lavender.
