Natural Mosquito Repellents
Mosquitoes in Charleston are extreme this season. For us, Mosquito Season usually lasts from March or April to October. Since we are a coastal region with ample humidity, marshes, swamps, rain, and flooding, mosquito reduction is typically only possible with professional treatments. However, if you keep your grass cut and keep standing water away from your yard, natural repellents might help. Check out this list of Natural Mosquito Repellents our friends at Clayton & Clayton put together. Even if you already have professional mosquito reduction treatments, this list could come in handy at an outdoor event or at a friends’ house. Some of these options like Lavender or Litsea, could be helpful topical options for your kids and pets. Other natural mosquito repellents are actual plants to put in your yard, like basil, peppermint, and catnip.
