Direct Gardening is having a sale on Mosquito Shoo plants. It is a citronella type plant that is supposed to repel mosquitos. Now that the West Nile Virus is spreading I think it is something we should probably invest in. The Mosquito Shoo plant is a potted plant that can be grown outdoors during the summer and some of us probably have plenty more summer left to make it worth our while to buy a few.
Lemon Balm is also another plant that is supposed to ward off the evil buggars. Some people like to use garlic, as in eating it. Of course we know that would also ward off any potential mates for those who are looking and family and friends. Also planting Marigolds, Mint, Vanilla scented geraniums
Encouraging bats and dragonflies are also ways to win the war against mosquitoes although as many bats as there are where I live I am not convinced. All of my bats must be on a diet.
