Mosquitoes are insects that can be dangerous to humans if bitten.
Not only itching and redness of the skin, but mosquito bites can also cause dengue fever which, if not treated immediately, can be fatal.
Usually, to repel these small animals, we will use insect repellent but it also has side effects for human health.
There is also a natural way to keep mosquitoes out of your home by growing plants that mosquitoes do not like and which provide protection for us.
This mosquito repellent plant will be more effective if the leaves are crushed because it will emit a mosquito-hating scent.
Here are five plants that are said to be effective at repelling these insects.
Lemongrass is a very effective mosquito repellent plant and it is not surprising that it is widely used to produce commercial products such as soaps, candles, and fragrances.
Lemongrass has a fresh and delicious aroma but is not liked by mosquitoes.
Lavender flowers are known to have a soothing aroma. It is a drought-tolerant plant and does well in sunny locations.
Marigolds are native to the American continent. Besides being able to repel mosquitoes, it is also quite beautiful to decorate your yard.
Garlic is the best way to protect yourself from mosquitoes that don’t like its strong smell.
Simply put, grind the garlic and put it in a container so the smell can spread and the mosquitoes will fly away.
The fragrant aroma of rosemary wood also scares mosquitoes away. Mosquitoes may be scared, but they can also maintain a yard and are easy to grow and care for.
