You bet your bottom dollar I'm going to revamp my entire garden with these babies!

In the few shorts years that my husband and I have been married, I have developed an aspiration to one day have a green thumb. I would love to be that woman who is planting in her garden each week and whose azaleas are the envy of the neighborhood. Sadly, I have yet to reach that level, but I'm ready to go at it again after reading about these plants that naturally repel mosquitoes!

*insert praise hands emoji here*

With temperatures heating up, we are receiving reminders about just how nasty these little guys can be. They're annoying and their bites are a summer ailment we're not interested in, but they can also infect us with disease. There's never been a better time to take steps to protect ourselves. We can turn to sprays, Tiki torches and clip-ons, or we can just hid safely behind our wall of plants.

Thanks to County Living, we have a list of 10 plants that are natural mosquito repellents. I had no idea these existed. Of course, you can plant these guys around your home or you can crush them up and rub them on your skin for added protection.
