|Although there have been a few plants with lemon scent that have been said to repel mosquitoes, in my experience it is not at all effective. The most effective methods of mosquito control are to eliminate sources of standing water where they can breed, and for additional protection wear protective clothing and use an insect repellent as recommended by the CDC. I'm sorry I can't recommend any plants.
