    Default Plants & Mosquitoes

    I had earlier shared about the plants that repel mosquitoes. In case you have not read the plants that naturally repel mosquitoes are -

    • Citronella Plant
    • Eucalyptus Plant
    • Catnip
    • Lemon Basil
    • Lavender Plant

    But do you know about the plants that could attract mosquitoes?

    Almost all the plants that you grow indoors can attract mosquitoes and help them to breed and multiply.
    Plants with wet soil, water collected in pot dishes become the breeding place for mosquitoes.
    Chikungunya mosquitoes are believed to breed near water-clogged areas of trees and plants.

    You must follow the steps to protect your family from mosquitoes and still have a good indoor garden

    1. Wipe your plastic pots from outside after watering the plants, as mosquitoes can lay eggs even in 1 drop of water.
    2. Do not let water get collected in pot dishes or corners around the pot.
    3. Throw away any excess water from Flower Pot Dish
    4. Use Mosquito Repellent Cream if you have plants in the bedroom.
    5. Use natural mosquito repellent or electronic mosquito repellent for few days in a week to prevent any mosquitoes if any.

    These simple steps will help you to stay protected against mosquitoes and enjoy gardening!
