Fungi help your soil, your composting and your plants. Let 'em grow!


Thank you to online reader Steve Klemish for your comment on “Grow Safe, Natural Mosquito Repellents”:

What about Lantana for controlling mosquitoes? (Lantana camara L.) Check out the study from 2011: PLoS One. 2011; 6(10): e25927. Several mosquito-repellent plants were considered for installation as "house screens," but lantana was ultimately selected because of its "size and vigor, year round growth, and known repellency towards the African malaria vector Anopheles gambiae s.s."

Do you have mosquito-repelling tips? Leave a follow-up comment.
