Use Spices as Outdoor Pest Deterrents

Early mornings and evenings are popular times for relaxing on the porch or patio – unfortunately, these are also the times when mosquitoes are out for blood!

Spice it up. Using a charcoal grill?
Toss a tablespoon or so of sage or rosemary on the coals. It repels mosquitoes and smells good.


Sachet them away.
Fill small squares of cheesecloth with bay leaves or cloves. Place these sachets around your outdoor sitting areas (as well as inside the house) to discourage flies from hanging around.
