Buzz off Mosquitoes!

Plant Pelargoniums (scented geranium) near your patio this summer. When the mosquitoes start buzzing and making an evening in the garden a misery, pick leaves from the plants and rub the leaves over your arms and legs. This remedy has been used by African tribes for many years.
