Repelling Mosquitos with Geraniums

August 9, 2007

Geraniums with pink and white flowersI have a severe mosquito problem at my home. Only outside, thankfully, but that's where I like to spend all of my time. I don't have any standing water that I'm aware of but my lot is surrounded by pine trees. What can I do to get rid of them? I am getting anywhere from 3 to 50 bites (yes, that many) every time I walk outside for more than 5 minutes. I'm miserable. Please help!

Rub a little vinegar on your exposed skin. It repels "skeeters" quite well.

If you have a problem with mosquitoes like many of us do in the summer, use potted geraniums to decorate your deck, porch, or outside sitting area this will keep them at bay.
