I consider "concrete jungles" unique ecosystems, instead of being separate from nature. Ants and other species shape their environments. I do not look upon an ant hill and think it isn't "nature," and I apply the same to us. I just think we're extra-obsessed with manipulating our surroundings.

Alright, I don't deny the fact that we've been living in concrete. But think of what we breath, we need oxygen. What produces oxygen? Plants. I don't deny the fact that with the absent of trees, I still get a good source of oxygen.

Mint isn't the only (supposedly) mosquito repelling plant.

I have nearly half those plants on my patio, and it might slow down how fast mosquitoes find me, but they're still fucking awful.

*Mint's super invasive, be sure to plant it in a spot you're not worried about other plants getting crowded out.

A clove garlic keeps the mosquito away. Just two more weeks till may vacation to the middle of nowhere and no damnable cell reception.

Nature (the bugs, the heat, the humidity, the sun) should all stay outside, while I stay inside.

I like trees and plants, actually. But I've never been able to keep a plant indoors alive, so I don't get anymore, because I don't want to kill the poor things.

Hanging bat houses is also a good way to fight mosquitoes. If you can attract even a few bats, they will eat tons of them.

Still better than getting eaten by mosquitoes, although it is not necessary if the mosquitoes aren't bad; then a can of off is just fine.

I used to have a mint plant indoors. Didn't have much of a smell but I do have some empty pots and some mint....... Mint tea.... Fuck it I'm sold.



Ever see how good it is at repealing mosquitoes?


It's good shit. Get the right kind of mint though. You want Peppermint if you are going for the classic mint flavour.

Also, DO NOT plant it in the ground outdoors. Shits invasive. Unless you want it everywhere in your Garden and backyard, don't plant it outdoors.

Take it from a garlic eater. It doesn't work.

Garlic doesn't repel mosquitoes.

You need to cut down on your sugar intake. That's what is doing it. (And even if I am somehow wrong, you could probably still use a cutdown in your sugar intake anyways if you are anything near average.)

I know a few guys who use garlic and it works for them, but using garlic as a spice and seasoning isn't nearly enough to repel the damn things.

I just want it to be in the garden so I can ward off the mosquitos. Which is better, peppermint or garlic plant? It is easier for me to get access to garlic, but I would like to now how potent it is
