- Horticuturalists and other experts say if you want fewer mosquito bites this summer, add these to your backyard:
- Mint (just make sure you keep it in a container as mint can spread FAST)
- All five of these plants contain chemicals that are known to repel mosquitoes.
- You can also use basil, which has oils known to kill mosquito larvae. Plant or keep Basil near your grill and mosquitos will seek out another food source.
