“Please, please, please help!!!
I can’t even go outside for a few minutes without getting bit by mosquitoes. I would love to let my grandkids play out back, but because of the mosquitoes we just completely AVOID going outside.
It’s awful. My grandkids love the outdoors, but at Grammy’s house, that’s a big fat NO! I hate mosquitoes! So I would absolutely love your help with plants and gadgets and advice to eliminate these mean pests and keep me from having to tell my grandkids that they can’t play outside.”
To keep mosquitoes from biting without harsh chemicals:
-Add 20 drops of essential oil—like eucalyptus, cinnamon, or lemon oil—to two tablespoons of olive oil. Rub the solution on your skin.
-Place a fan on your deck, patio, or porch so it blows on you to keep mosquitoes from landing.
-Grow plants in your yard that mosquito doesn’t like, including marigolds, lavender, sage, rosemary, and lemon Thai grass.
-Soak a sprig of fresh rosemary in water for a few minutes, and place it on a hot grill to create mosquito repellent smoke.
