Entertaining guests outdoors is a great way to enjoy the beautiful spring and summer weather. However, once the bugs invade, it may not be as enjoyable. I am always finding natural ways to do anything, which means that I don't like to use pesticides. A nice way to repel mosquitos is to use a group of mosquito-repelling potted plants. Put them together near your seating area and they not only look pretty, but they also protect you, your family and your guests!
