Organic Mosquito Repellent

Bug be gone by bathbody
Dengue is very much in the news and while I was checking out my plants around past noon, a mosquito  made its presence known! Yikes, it had stripped legs. I hope it's not what I think it is. It's not a good idea to get sick today or ever in this time. 

I heard the past week about onion peels can be a mosquito repellent so I surfed a bit and found Tipnut with gardening tips to boot.

My petunia last month 
I didn't know onion peels can be helpful against aphids. *sigh* It ravaged my petunia and it's dying. Now, I understood that I need to plant lots of garlic for the plants. ☺ I'm a neophyte that it shows. haha. I also heard from the news about planting citronella plant which has a natural mosquito repellent factor for the garden. I will just do that.
