How to Repel Mosquitoes Naturally

Mosquitoes are one of the most annoying insect pests alive. If you live in an area with a lot of them, it can completely destroy your summer and prevent you from enjoying outdoor activities in the cooler and more pleasant morning and evening hours.

With the arrival of West Nile Disease, mosquitoes have also become dangerous to citizens of non-tropical countries for the first time in many years.

Here are some tips for controlling mosquitoes around your home without pesticides or other dangerous chemicals.

Destroy Mosquito Habitats

  • The first step you should take is to examine your yard thoroughly a day or two after a heavy rainfall, looking for areas with standing water that might harbor mosquito larvae. Not all of these areas will be natural—in fact, some mosquitoes show a decided preference for breeding in old tires and similar man-made water collectors. Dump out any standing water you find, or better yet, remove the breeding habitat completely.
  • Be careful to change water in bird baths at least two times per week.
  • If you own a pond, consider adding a waterfall or fountain to prevent the water from becoming stagnant. Adding koi is another good idea—koi voraciously eat mosquito larvae, pupae, and adults. Other good mosquito-eating fish include: goldfish, mosquito fish (Gambusia affinis), Fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas), and Golden shiners (Notemigonus crysoleucas).
  • Cut edge plantings back so they don't overhang the water, and keep aquatic plants from growing in still corners of the pond, to keep them from providing protection for mosquito larvae.
  • Do provide some underwater and emergent plants such as sedges or rushes, however, because dragonflies (another voracious mosquito eater) will use these plants to climb out of the water when changing from their nymph form to adults.

Plants That Repel Mosquitoes

There are a number of plants that repel them. Planting a mix of these plants around your home and patio can create mosquito-free zones for outdoor entertaining and other activities.

  • One of the most famous is citronella grass, which is used by manufacturers to make citronella candles.
  • Another well-known plant is the marigold. These cheery flowers repel many other insect pests as well, but are popular nectar sources for butterflies.
  • Catnip is famous for attracting cats, but what is less well known is that it also repels mosquitoes! In fact, studies have found that catnip oil is more than 10 times better at repelling them than DEET!
  • The lovely and aromatic garden herbs rosemary, basil, lavender, lemon balm, and lemongrass are also effective.

More plants that repel mosquitoes:

  • cedar
  • sagebrush
  • bee balm/bergamot
  • onion
  • garlic
  • tansy
  • eucalyptus
  • peppermint
  • horsemint
  • eucalyptus

There are two different kinds of plants commonly sold as "mosquito plants." One is a type of geranium that has been genetically modified to produce citronella oil. The other is Agastache cana, also known as Giant Hyssop, Bubblegum Mint, or Hummingbird Mint.

Bring in the Cavalry

Fish and dragonflies are not the only animal that love a tasty mosquito. Birds, bats, frogs, and toads will also take a significant chunk out of the insect population.

  • The best are swallows and their relatives, purple martins. Providing birdhouses can encourage these attractive and helpful species to take up residence.
  • Bats also appreciate a home, and commercially made bat houses are also available.
  • To learn more about attracting frogs and toads to your yard, please read Attracting Frogs and Toads To Your Garden.
  • If you live in an area where they are allowed, domestic poultry also make fantastic mosquito control assistants. The best species include chickens, guinea hens, and ducks. Although free range birds are most effective, even birds confined to runs or "chicken tractors" can take a bite out of your mosquito problem.

More Mosquito Repelling Tips

  • Eating a diet heavy in onions and garlic can make you unattractive to them.
  • They find their prey partly through carbon dioxide. If you are outside in mosquito-heavy locations, avoid overheating or exercising as much as possible, as these cause you to emit more carbon dioxide.
  • Curiously, they seem to be more attracted to people who consume diets high in sugary or processed foods. Eating a diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits may help reduce your attractiveness to them.
  • Avoid wearing floral or fruity scents from perfumes, sunscreens, soaps, laundry detergent, and similar products.
  • Some people swear by vitamin B-1 (thiamin) tablets.

      Nice tips here. I live in New England and the humidity during the summer makes for a lot of mosquitoes. I plan on adding some of the plants to that yard that you recommended. Especially, marigolds. Thanks for the tips.

      I can confirm the results of a garlic-rich diet. I was out golfing one day with on of my besties. She had repellant on and was getting eaten alive by mosquitoes, but I had no repellant (but was including a lot of garlic in my diet), and didn't get a single bite.

      Excellent tips and ideas. We love eating outdoors, but the mosquitos can be a challenge after rainy days. I like the idea of adding catnip. It sounds like it is time to revive my herb garden too! I'm going to bookmark this in my 'home tips' file. :)

      Our yard is a battlefield. I'm hoping some of these ideas work. I don't, however, think that cedar will repel them, since two sides of our yard is nothing but cedars and that seems to be where they are the worst.

      Great tips on maintaining a mosquito-free pond. As for personal diet, I think eating lots of garlic and onions will make you unattractive to both mosquitoes and people.

      In addition to keeping predatory animals on your property, I've read about those mosquito traps that can cover up to one acre. They work by luring the mosquitoes with an attractant and CO2 (mimicking humans).

      Here's one I found online:

      Its commonly known that mossies like tepid water and will breed in saucers below containers. Empty them or put an oil the container such as tea tree or eucalyptus to deter them. Be careful in some asian countries not to get bitten day or night, because mozzies there carry dengie fever

      After reading the hub, I decided to look up some info on purple martins. And, unfortunately the site I found (link below) says that purple martins do not consume mosquitoes. So I'm going to try the bat house instead.

      I read somewhere that you can mix up a repellant using

      stuff found in your cleaning closet,I forget the exact ingrediants but there was dish washing soap,lemon juice,epsom salt, mix it up,put it in one of those garden sprayer type things fill it with water and spray your yard ,patio,or whatever.It will not hurt plants or grass or your pets.And surposedly it really works.Has anyone else heard of this ? Great site by the way,I'm going to get some B-1 today.Thanks

      Wow, I just keep learning more and more about warding off these little blood suckers. I saw a program not long ago with Bill Nigh (not sure on that spelling), the science guy, and he made reference to a potion that was equal parts Witch Hazel and Apple Cider Vinegar with an ounce or two of eucalyptus oil added in, shaken up and spayed with a spray bottle. All natural and supposed to ward off those little pests. I haven't tried it yet, but I keep meaning to.

      Thanks for the great hub, I'll be bookmarking it for sure...

      When I was visiting Darwin (where mosquitoes can carry dangerous infections), I was in a store looking at insect repellent when the pharmacist said to me, "don't waste your time on those, take these tablets instead".  The tablets were Vitamin B1. 

      They worked like a charm.  I'm one of those people who is normally a mosquito banquet, and when I'm bitten, the bites come up in big red weals.  I didn't get one bite while I was taking the B1.

      11 years ago from

      Yes, this is a great source of information, but there's an even easier way. If you make a nutritional shake in the morning with fruit, milk/yogurt, and nutritional yeast (and if you want more protein, you can always add that raw egg) and blend it up with a handful of ice cubes. The nutritional yeast has lots of trace minerals/vitamins, especially iron and B-vitamins and for whatever reason, ticks, mosquitos, fleas, mites won't drink the blood of anyone or any animal who has nutritional yeast in their systems. I give a tsp to my alpacas and my dog/cat and they've never had a tick, flea, mosquito or mite bother them at all. Even the biting flies leave them alone.

      You can only do so much with your own habitat because you can only control your property, but just like the guy who was growing canola and got it polinated by bees (got sued by the seed company and lost). You still have to take care of the insect pests, like mosquitoes, that come to visit from your neighbors. I despise mosquitoes, biting flies, yellow jackets, fleas, etc., so I do whatever I can to keep them away from me. From personal experience, I've found that mosquitoes don't like me since I started drinking my nutritional shakes in the morning--and I've got a lot less stress as well. It took about 4 days before they even stopped dive bombiing me, so I know it works.

      Yours is a very informative and useful Hub ... Congratulations.

      I've made notes, and will share it with others, because out here in the semi-tropicals, mosquitos are not only a nuisance, but also a big health hazard.

      I will be very grateful if <kerryg> can conduct some more researching and give us the receipe for an oil, or a water based spraying mixture, that eliminates mosquitoes from common human surroundings, and ... can be "made" locally by common folks... Such an oil or mixtuture, will help save millions of human lives, particularly in Africa and Asia..

      My Congratulations are also due to HubPages ... For providing a Prcatical and useful Forum, where Ideas and Experiences are being shared.

      Thanks for the info. I live in Thailand, which is rife with mosquitoes and they spread lots of Dengue here. One thing the Thai's do, is have a lighting source if you're sitting outside at night. Evening mosquitoes flee from light. And, I verify that Lemongrass does work! They sell tons of it here in oil and jelly forms. Also, Tiger Balm, which is used as a remedy for muscle pain (topical and warms the skin), keeps them away too! Of course, they also believe drinking copious amounts of whiskey or eating lots of chillies also works - but I can't verify that...
