It's just about bug bite season and if you're looking for a way to keep the mosquitos away, listen to the experts. Horticuturalists 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.
