Keeping the Pests Away

It's spring and the mosquitoes are flying. Keeping them away from your site is key to sitting outside comfortably. You can do that, of course, by spraying chemicals or you can carry a few pots of flowers that will do the same thing. Flowers that work on keeping mosquitoes and other insects away are:

  • Floss Flower

  • Citronella Plant

  • Citronella Grass

  • Peppermint

  • Lemon Balm

  • Lavender

  • Catnip

  • Basil

  • Mint

  • Citrosum

  • Sage

  • Marigolds

  • Lemongrass

  • Petunias

  • Rosemary

  • Garlic

  • Lemon Thyme

  • Crane's-bill

  • Eucalyptus

  • Scented Geraniums

  • Chrysanthemums

  • Allium

  • Wormwood

  • Ageratum

  • Pennyroyal

  • Citronella Geranium

Surround yourself in pots or raised beds if your campground allows them and you will find that you can live comfortably in your outside world.
