Grow a garden full of your own natural pest control and never buy bug spray again!
Look, mosquitoes are awful. They fly around searching for animals or people, to take a bite and suck out their blood. Gross. They may be great food for birds and bats, but you don’t want them hanging around your backyard with their diseases and viruses and whatnot (trust us, mosquito-borne diseases like west nile virus, malaria, or zika don’t sound like health issues that we want to explore personally). You also don’t want to spray yourself in harsh chemical mosquito repellents that could themselves be the source of other health issues. So, aside from making your outdoor living areas less friendly to the eggs by getting rid of any standing water (including the water in clogged rain gutters), what are your best option for repelling these bugs, and keeping yourself free from disease?
