Grow These Plants To Repel Mosquitoes

by aditya abhishek


Mosquitoes not only cause irritating bites but can also transmit deadly diseases like dengue fever, malaria, and Zika virus. To repel them, grow these plants in bulk...


Lavender is effective in repelling mosquitoes. Lavender contains linalool, which is a natural mosquito repellent. Plant lavender in a sunny location with well-drained soil.


Marigold is a bright and colorful flowering plant that can repel mosquitoes. They contain pyrethrum, which is a natural insecticide.


It is a natural mosquito repellent. It has a strong scent that mosquitoes dislike, & it can be grown in pots or in the ground. It prefers well-draining soil & partial to full sun.


It is a fragrant herb that also repels mosquitoes. Grow it in pots & place it around outdoor seating areas. You can also use the leaves to make a homemade repellent spray.


Basil is not only a delicious herb, but it also repels mosquitoes with its strong scent. Crush the leaves to release the scent and place them around outdoor areas.


Eucalyptus contains a natural insecticide that repels mosquitoes. You can crush the leaves and place them around sitting areas.

However, these plants are only effective if you grow them in bulk quantity. Otherwise, growing one or two mosquito repelling plants are not found to be effective.
