Plants that help keep the mosquitoes away!

by The Underwood Team

Thank goodness for all the rain Midland has received lately. Only downfall is when the rain comes, so do all the mosquitoes. 
We have done some research and found a couple of plants that help repel mosquitoes and that will last in our west Texas climate.

Lavender 
Mosquitoes hate the pleasant scent of lavender and stay clear of it. 
It is best in a pot by your front door, window, or entertainment area in your backyard.

Citronella 
This one is a given, theres candles sprays, essential oils, and much more, but as a plant its great! Pretty and big and can withstand summers stress. They grow to be pretty large so they are also great for privacy.

Geraniums 
If you want a little more color and more flowers to repel the mosquitoes, go with geraniums. They get the job done just as well but are very attractive and if taken care of properly will repel the mosquitoes just the same.

A couple more tips to keep mosquitoes out is to make sure to drain all objects in your yard that can hold water in it. Mosquitoes live and breed in the shallow muggy waters so be sure to drain or cover or drain any pots, bird baths, kiddie pools, before and after rain.
