Found this… i live in South America and those citrus-y fruits are very good at repelling mosquitoes such as lime, lemon grass, lemon, oranges, tangerines, mandarins. Basically high smelling plants I would expect 😀
Some people do not like how citronella smells, so catnip, peppermint, rosemary, marigolds, lemon balm, garlic, clove, eucalyptus, tea tree, and lavander are all great alternatives. Wild plants have vanilla leaf, sagebrush, wormwood, pineapple weed, and many more, all repel mosquitos!
