I thought that Forum members might like to read about plants that repel or discourage pests.

Met die hitte wat ons tans beleef, vreet die muskiete my behoorlik op.   Dan is daar ook die alewige brommers (Blue Flies) wat verstommende reuksintuie het.  Binne sekondes nadat die sak wildsvleisbene oopgemaak is om in die stoompot te sit, kuier die goed saam.  Ek het toe gaan soek vir natuurlike hulpmiddels om die goed te ontmoedig om my te pla. 

One can also check on Wikipedia for "Plants that repel insects".

Actually I am doing this to give those of us doing the garden route this holiday something to think about and do.

That is probably why I don't have a mosquito problem here. There is a small dam at our house, a water furrow, and my wifes lawn is always wet.
A Cabbage tree next to stoep,a lot of lavender,and basil is grown, along with other herbs, rosemary, origano, dill, thyme, sage etc. Maybe the mossies get an overload of smells here.
Von sometimes sprays a lavender mist on our pillows, smells heavenly, and maybe helps as well.

Hendrik, kyk by http://bestplants.com/plants-that-repel-mosquitoes/.   Ek het die lys daar gekry en dit oorgetrek in Word.   Kon dit egter nie hier plaas nie en het die Word toe omgeskakel na jpg.   Daar is 'n korter lys by die Wikipedia bladsy wat ek hierbo noem.

Ek het groot geword op n plaas waar my ma immer malva blomme rondom die deure en op die plaashuis stoep gehad het. Dit sou konsuis slange weghou, hulle nie like van die reuk van malvas nie. Weet nou nog nie of dit gehelp het nie, want die swart rinkalse was nooit te naby aan die huis nie maar gereeld by die hoenderhokke, waarskynlik agter die eiers aan.
I love camping all year round

Johan, die malva plante moet iets doen.   In Switserland het bykans al die huise malva plante.   Volgens die gids wat ons rondgery het is dit om die vliee (weens die beeste) hok te slaan.
