Keep mosquitoes off naturally!
These are 8 common plants that repel mosquitoes:

CITRONELLA
CATNIP
LAVENDER
BASIL
MINT
LEMON BALM
LEMON THYME
ROSEMARY

Grow these plants in your garden and for some, indoors by the windows. Their scents and oils repel mosquitoes.
We can also snip them up and place them in the house as repellent cum potpourri; smoke a handful with fire to keep mosquitoes at bay for outdoor gatherings; and some of these plants can be crushed and be applied to the skin as repellent or to soothe insect bites.

These plants might help to repel mosquitoes but they are not the solution to 100% mosquito-proof your house or yourself. Perform routined checks to ensure your surrounding is cleared from being a breeding haven  for mosquitoes. Use non-toxic/safe mosquitoe-repelling appliances for added protection.
