Insect Repellent Plants

For many years in traditional practices, plant-based repellents have been used as a personal protection measure against host-seeking mosquitoes. Most plants contain compounds that they use in preventing an attack from phytophagous (plant-eating) insects. These chemicals fall into several categories, including repellents, feeding deterrents, toxins, and growth regulators.

They can be grouped into five major chemical categories, nitrogen compounds (primarily alkaloids), terpenoids, phenolics, proteinase inhibitors, and growth regulators.

Here is a list of the best mosquito repelling plants

  • Basil
