Had a slight mosquito problem on my balcony, so I planted some lemon balm and lavender. I was a little skeptical, but I haven't seen a mosquito out there since, so guess it works!


Lemon balm can be invasive, so I probably wouldn't recommend that for a garden.

And, of course, both of those are likely moot if you're leaving breeding spots intact, so always start by eliminating places where standing water might collect.
