Want to keep mosquitoes away without using those nasty sprays? Well, the next time your garden is overwhelmed, consider a mosquito-repellent plant like basil.

How about a backyard that smells minty fresh? With pennyroyal, not only will you do that, you’ll also keep the mosquitoes at bay.

I don’t know about you, but lavender is one of my favorite fragrances. There’s something so calming about it. There’s even been research about this, which has revealed lavender can relieve anxiety.

This plant would be best placed in a garden, or even a windowsill that gets plenty of sunlight. After you finish watering the plant, give it a bit of time to dry out. It provides a distinctive scent which will drive the bugs away. Rosemary can also double as an edible herb.

You give your cat some catnip and they’ll go crazy. On the other hand, it benefits you by keeping mosquitoes away. They absolutely hate catnip.

American Beautyberry
The American beautyberry is a native plant of the southern United States. It’s a very beautiful shrub that produces white flowers. The plant also produces a cluster of berries during the Fall season.

You’ve probably used garlic once or twice for cooking. Plenty of delicious outdoor meals come with garlic in some form.

Lemon Balm
Lemon balm is another great anti-bug plant. The leaves have a special compound called citronellal.

It has been used in anti-mosquito products for a long time. If you purchase a bug spray, it’s most likely going to have citronella oil in it. This oil is also used in outdoor candles.
