Summer is on and the mosquitoes would have started bothering you already!

Everyone shares the same misery when it comes to those blood-sucking creatures. Sure, we have repellents, coils and mosquito nets as solution, but there is one more option that tops it all. How about growing some plants, that are natural mosquito repellent.

Here is a list of such plants for your selection and liking.

1.Basil

Basil is a must-have plant. This herb contains within itself some very essential oils. These oils are good for health and are also very effective in repelling mosquitoes. If this plant is grown in abundance, the nearby areas can observe the effect very prominently as mosquitoes stop paying visit!

2.Catnip

 

This one is a funny plant to grow, especially if you have a cat for a pet in your house. The cats tend to go in an intoxicated state, after smelling Catnip leaves. But besides putting your pet cat in a laughable state, this plant assures that no mosquitoes are around. It is one good option, if you are looking forward to put some mosquito repellent plants in your garden.

3.Clove Plant

This plant is the source to cloves from which the oil can be extracted. This oil is a very good repellent for mosquitoes. Besides being a mosquito repellent, clove oil is an aid when it comes to tooth ache. With correct climatic conditions, if this plant is grown, it tends to keep the mosquitoes away!

4.Eucalyptus

The trees are not easy to grow, agreed. But in case you get your hands on some good eucalyptus oil, grab hold of it. Not only is it a good mosquito repellent, it is a pain reliever too. This oil is multipurpose. It is easily available in market too.

5.Lavender

This is a very good option. The flowers are beautiful, the fragrance is amazing and they irritate the hell out of the blood sucking creatures. Lavender oil when mixed and applied, repels away mosquitoes.

6.Lemon Grass

 

 

If you are planting lemon grass in your garden, it will serve multiple purposes. Firstly, it is a cooking ingredient. It adds that lemony flavour to your dish, when required. The oil is sometimes used in perfumes also. And lastly and most importantly, it is a very good mosquito repellent. Grow it and mosquitoes are done with!
