5 Plants That Repel MosquitosI found an article the other day that mentioned a bunch of plants that repel mosquitos. I thought it would be good to share with the Natural Health Ezine readers…

So for me, I am looking forward to creating a garden specifically built around keeping mosquitos away! I hate them – don’t you? Time will tell how effective these natural repellants are, but I think it is worth a shot…

According to the article…

“Planting a mix of these plants around your home and patio can create mosquito free zones for outdoor entertaining and other activities.”
