Mosquitoes Are Pests!

Standing water breeds mosquitoes and mosquitoes carry disease. Anyone with access to news media has undoubtedly heard of the recent cases of Zika Virus. While this is not much of a concern for St. Louis at this time, mosquitoes are not a welcome addition to your outdoor spaces.

 There are many plants that naturally repel mosquitoes. When you are planning out your garden this spring, here are a few suggestions of beautiful, fragrant, and useful plants to help keep these unwanted pests away.
