Whether it’s finally getting around to those home maintenance projects or getting an extra hour of ball practice in, being outside in the evening leaves our bodies vulnerable to unwanted insect bites. Yes, those pesky mosquitoes are lurking nearby. Here are a few tips to keep in mind while sprucing up your yard’s landscaping this year.
Plant flowers and herbs that work as natural insect repellents.
Citronella Grass– common ingredient in bug sprays. You can purchase these plants at local yard and gardening stores.
Lavender– Do I need to say more? Not only does lavender smell amazing, it’s beautiful purple hues will add a bright pop of color to your garden. O, and yes, it’s a natural repellent for mosquitoes!
