People are always looking for ways to keep mosquitoes away from them. Besides just being a nuisance and causing itchy bites on your skin, mosquitoes can also transmit dangerous diseases such as malaria, Zika, and West Nile virus. You can use repellents, but these often have harsh chemicals that themselves can be the source of health issues. And since Tick Killz is all about natural products to keep pests away, we are here to talk about plants that guard off mosquitos. It may be a good alternative to keep your property protected without the harsh chemicals.
Mosquitoes are attracted to certain odors in human skin, and even more attracted when we sweat. Likewise, mosquitoes are also repelled by certain smells, both due to an unpleasant aroma to the insect or the fact that these smells mask the human smell that they are attracted to. Citronella candles are common example of this principle, and it turns out there are many types of plants that can be used similarly to mask your smell and drive away mosquitoes.
Mosquito-repelling plants can be simply planted and left to do their job, but are even more effective if you crush the leaves and rub them on your skin, as they will release oils and scents that can effectively be rubbed on your body. Here are a few plants that can be used to repel mosquitoes.
