These Insanely Helpful Garden Plants Keep the Mosquitoes Away

Say goodbye to the outdoor pests. Bugs come with the territory when you’re outdoors, but some are more tolerable than others. If it feels like mosquitoes are invading your yard, it’s understandable to want to do what you can to get rid of them. Enter mosquito repellent plants. Here’s the thing: Experts say that the best way to keep mosquitoes at bay is to use personal repellents recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But if you want to go a more natural route, you may be interested in selecting certain plants—they’re just not necessarily guaranteed to work as well as a spray. “The idea that planting certain plants around your home will successfully repel mosquitoes is only supported by anecdotal evidence and not empirical evidence,” says Eva Buckner, Ph.D., assistant professor and state extension specialist at the University of Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory. It’s important to note, though, that there is some evidence that certain plants may help discourage certain mosquitoes from setting up camp in your yard—they just don’t work as well as a chemical or spray. If it feels like your outdoor space is a haven to mosquitoes, it’s a good idea to “eliminate mosquito breeding grounds on and around your property by draining standing water from flowerpots, birdbaths, grill covers, baby pools, and other sources,” says Jim Fredericks, Ph.D., board-certified entomologist and senior vice president of public affairs at the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). Using a small fan outside may also help keep mosquitoes away since “they are not strong flyers,” Fredericks says. But if you like the look and smell of certain plants and want to see if they keep the mosquitoes away, too, there’s no reason not to try them. These are the plants fans swear are most likely to help get rid of mosquitoes. Snap up one or a few to enhance your outdoor space.

The biggest Native American tribes in the US today

It's commonly believed that Native American origins go way back to the Ice Age, when the first humans migrated across the Bering Strait and into what is now North America. Over time, they spread across the continent and into South America, establishing distinct tribes, territories, and cultures. And although some customs and traditions have been lost to colonization, war, and missionary efforts, many tribes still maintain their unique identity that honors their rich ancestral history. In this gallery, we've used the 2020 Census Bureau, the most comprehensive recent population report on the Native American population in the US, to compile a list of the 30 largest Native American tribes today. The tribes are ranked based on the number of people who identify as members of this tribe alone or in any combination (such as Apache and Navajo). The data tracks identity for tribes more generally as well as specific nations. As a result, certain indigenous groups may appear multiple times on the list, like the Cherokee and the Cherokee Nation. Also, some of the cited tribal populations, including the Aztec and Inca, represent migration from countries such as Mexico and Peru. So, curious? Then click on to discover the biggest Native American tribes in the US today.
