Q.Citronella For Mosquitoes

Zone 34472 | Anonymous added on June 19, 2023 | Answered

Hi, Here in Zone 9, Beauty Berry is abundant. It grows everywhere. It too repels mosquitoes and deters ticks & ants. Rub it on your skin and clothes and away you go. You can carry a refill in a zip-lock bag in your pack/pocket and put a few crushed leaves in your socks. There are several recipes available for sprays and creams. I have been using it for decades. Growing it around the house also helps keep the bitters away. I am already on your email list… Thanks for your articles.
