In order to enjoy gardening, we often have to fight the bugs! And one of the most annoying and possibly disease carrying bugs our wet summer weather brings on are MOSQUITOES! A couple of pesticide free methods to cut down on the number of bugs are: 1) clean out plant debris from your gardening beds 2) empty containers and objects holding stagnant water and 3) plant plants that will help discourage them. I found this easy chart that can help you remember some of the plants mosquitoes hate the most! Interesting how so many of them are herbs!
