Mosquitos are a nuisance. They’re annoying; they can carry diseases and make it hard to enjoy the outdoors during summertime.

Luckily there is a solution – plants that repel mosquitos! Planting these around your yard will keep them away from you and your family while also adding some beautiful greenery to your space.

Citronella Grass (Cymbopogon)

Citronella Grass is one of the most popular plants that repel mosquitos. The oils in citronella grass plants are what repel mosquitoes.

Basil (Ocimum basilicum)

This pungent-smelling plant has been used as a mosquito repellant since ancient times and since it’s one of the few plants that offer a strong-enough bug-repelling scent that you do not have to crush the leaves!

Catnip (Nepeta cataria)

Catnip is a perennial herb that can be grown both indoors and outdoors. This plant is known to have a strong odor, but it’s also great at repelling mosquitoes!

Lavender (Lavandula anguvstifolia)

The lavender plant contains an essential oil called linalool, recognized as one of the most effective natural insect repellents today.
