Reduce Summer Pest with herbs

camping, Cooking, FL, hiking

Mosquitoes hate herbs like lavender, mint, lemon balm, sage, and of course, citronella.

Toss a few branches of herbs fresh or dry into the fire and what smells heavenly to you, will send bugs packing!

Even if you don’t have a firepit, then you can still create bug-repelling smoke. Making your own citronella candles is easy and inexpensive if you use recycled materials. See how to make these Citronella CANdles here:

 
Sage for campfires

There are plenty more mosquito-repelling plants that you can add to your landscape. See them on my eBay blog:
