Hi, where I live, in the summer we get a decent amount of Mosquitos in our back yard. I'm sure I am not the only one. Are their any busches I could plant maybe around my fence or in my flower beds that repell mosquitos ? Any type of plants that I could put on my deck at least ? I know this is a tough one, we do use spray but that only helps to a certain point. I was hoping their were some "magic" kind of plants that would make the mosquitos hate being around.
Having a neighbor that totally neglects his lawn doesn't help either as their is old leaves, wood, uncut grass etc.. But he is such a nice guy I am not going to go over and tell him to keep up his yard better just because I think mosquitos are a plenty in his yard.
I do know not to have any standing water around but the mosqits are still a problem I would love to see go away ? Even if their are some plants to put on our deck that would help repell them that would be great, getting a screened in area is just not an option right now.
Is their any gardening solution ???
