Looking for ways to keep those pesky mosquitoes from becoming a nuisance at your home this summer? Winterberry has some tips to help keep them from ruining your cookouts and parties.
There has been an increased concern this past year when it comes to mosquitoes and we have had a lot of requests for some plants that are known to help repel these little pests. As a result, we are fully stocked up to meet your requests!
There are some particular plants and herbs that are known to have natural mosquito-repelling qualities. Some of these include Lemon Grass, Lemon Balm, Lemon Verbena and the Citronella Plant (also known as Scented Geranium). The citrus-like scent of all of these plants are believed to keep mosquitoes away. These plants can be placed on your porch or patio or even combined into a creative planter. Even though none of these plants flower, the different textures of their foliage create an interesting combination. We also carry other products, in addition to plants, to help keep your yard mosquito-free. Try sprinkling a granular product around the perimeter of your outdoor space. In addition, if you have an area of standing water, such as a pond or a fountain, we have small water-soluble packets of a different granular product that is quickly released once added to help keep the mosquitoes from sticking around.
If you prefer not to try these natural treatments on your own, Winterberry Lawn Care can provide the treatments for you. We have a custom program designed to eliminate, control and repel mosquitoes and other unwanted pests such as fleas, ticks, flies and other insects. No matter which avenue is best for your needs, Winterberry has you covered!
