Unless you only want to enjoy your yard on summer evenings from your sunroom, try some of these natural herbal remedies for a mosquito repellent. 

Lemon Balm:

Lemon Balm is great for repelling Mosquitoes – Or any bug for that matter.

To use, just pick off a leave from your garden and rub on your skin. The lemon scent is quite strong (But lovely) and bugs would rather not stick around. And, at the same time you are shooing away “bad” bugs, you will be attracting Bees and Butterflies! (Sounds like a win-win J)
