Plants Mosquitoes Hate!

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!
