Want to Keep Mosquitos Away?

Red cat sleeps in a vase near catnip

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!
