Answer: There are several plants on the market that have been called the mosquito plant. These are usually scented geranium varieties with a citronella or lemony fragrance that is released when the plant is bruised or the foliage is torn. Theya re grown as houseplants and can be set outside for the summer. They are not very effective in pest control, so if you are having trouble with mosquitos you might want to consult with your county extension about how to control them preventively.
