Catnip is one of them! But the pesky bugs don't! Lavender has a high concentration camphor which is waxy and flammable with a strong aroma. Lemon balm has a high level of citronella, which they can't stand! Basil isn't just for cooking, the strong scent of this herb is not a favorite of skeeters! Mint may be great for mojitos and the oils can soothe mosquito bites, keep the plant nearby and the pesky bugs will stay away!
