Moscito Control and Citronela plants
Howdy Texans, looking forward to the summer and thinking back on last summer one thing that really comes to mind outside of family jumping in the pool, barbecues and good times, was the huge muscuito population that turned our family get togethers into a moscuito feeding freenzy.
In all honesty, I'd guess 1/2 of the people who jumped in the pool tried to beat the heat and 1/2 tried to beat the moscuitos...
This year I was thinking of growing three citrinella plants from hanging baskets around my deck to help keep the skeeters at bay.
Has anyone tried this? Is it affective? Is their anything else to handle these pest outside of tieing roaps around the youngins, so that they are not carried off?
