SWEET BASIL Plant sweet basil next to the doors, or plant in containers. The flies will stay far away. Cut a nice size bunch of it to take with you when you go on picnics. As an added bonus, mosquitoes don’t like it either.
Citronella Geranium - Mosquito Plant: This scented geranium has been said to keep mosquitoes, black flies, and other biting insects away. Large attractive green leaves, that are deeply indented, have a strong citrus fragrance. Grows robustly and is a perfect choice for hot, dry spots in the garden, or for large containers on the patio.

Plant rosemary, mint, lavender and basil in front of entrances to your home/patio/picnic areas in your yard and in your kitchen to ward of bugs! They hate the smell but I sure love it! Gets rid of misquotes, flies, moths, scorpions, spiders and ants! Pass it along to have a critter free summer :) www.facebook.com/ThisToThat
