Tree Melia azedarach L. Obtained an oil which, if we ungem, because mosquitoes away flavor. The oil is not toxic to humans.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) and scented geraniums (Pelargonium odoratissimum) emit a smell not very loved by mosquitoes. Lavender attracts bees and butterflies instead.

Another remedy to keep mosquitoes away is to not leave water in the vessels of the flowers on the terrace, because mosquitoes lay their eggs in water or put a small copper wire in the flask of water each plant (the allegedthat we would have a mosquito copper wire, ... This year was an experiment and I).

Tomato fish are predators of mosquito larvae, if you have a pond and want to enjoy it, put some red fish in it.
