“ Another major herb that that performs a double duty is lemon grass as it naturally contains citronella , it adds flavour to various Oriental dishes while helping to deter mosquitoes, naturally. The same can be said of a mint plant. Mint, though a tad bit aggressive in that it can easily overtake a small space, helps to keep nearby plants insect free. Similarly Rosemary is quite useful in repelling mosquitoes and keeping pests away.” Said Ms Gupta.
