Good morning friends, today we talk about plants that repel mosquitoes and insects, yes how you hear it! If in the summer you are bothered and worried about mosquitoes and insects for you or your children, you can always grow some great plants that repel mosquitoes.
In this way we can enjoy the garden and home in a calm and free from mosquito bites. These plants are called natural repellents, since they have properties to scare away insects and we will also love them as decoration.
An example of these plants will be the well-known Lavender and / or Rosemary .. they are one of the most common and well-known plants, but not everyone knows about their great powers against mosquitoes.
In addition to Rosemary and Lavender, Catnip or Citronella are other plants that naturally repel mosquitoes.
The aroma they give off is a real insect repellent, but of course .. its aroma may be too intense, so it is advisable to use one of the two.
A good idea is to take rosemary and lavender and plant them in a pot, then to decorate and make them good repellents we can hang them from a beam, from the ceiling, from the roof of the porch .. in a great corner that is nice and we like to wear.
If you already have rosemary or are going to transplant it, be careful with the roots, remember that we will remove from the ground the plant with roots included. To do this always work with your hands, let us load important roots.
So that the plant does not die we must keep the roots moist, so we are going to wrap these roots in moss moistened with water. Atales biodegradable thread, so we will leave it done a ball and the roots very wet.
When we have prepared the chosen plant, with the moss, the thread and the water … it is convenient to hang it in the place where we like to hang out … it is not necessary to put it inside a pot. In this way the mosquitoes and other annoying insects will disappear and we can enjoy that pleasant time.
