What is a good all-natural way to get rid of the mosquitos

Resolved Question:

What is a good all-natural way to get rid of the mosquitos that hang out right outside of our front door? We've tried pesticides, which I am not really comfortable with, but they didn't do much. We have heard that Catnip repels them, so we have potted Catnip plants on the porch, but they are still around and get into our house ever time we open the door.

Thanks for your question.


CItronella oil or candles is a very good treatment for mosquitos. You can buy these at various places such as walmart, local stores, health food stores or home depot. If you buy the oil, add a teaspoon of oil to a quart of water in a spray bottle and spray it around your porch. This should keep those mosquitos away for a few days before you ned to spray again. The candles work also but they can be a fire hazard.


Hope this helps,
