I've been advised by someone who [cough] should know that both marijuana and basil can be mosquito repellant plants. I myself haven't a clue, nor do I have any idea at all why you're asking this question here, let alone asking it twice.

"Uh officer, I'm only growing these plants to repel mosquitoes." Yeah, that'll work.

@magic cave: Oh, so that's why I don't have any mosquitoes. I mean the basil. It also might have something to do with the ridiculous amount of lizards in my yard. Aren't citronella or lavender candles supposed to repel mosquitoes too?

Citronella plants are natural mosquito repellant plants. Also make sure that you have no standing water, like in old tires, unused swimming pools, birdbaths, etc.

What's your landscape like? When it rains, do you get standing water in your yard? Stagnant water is their preferred breeding ground.

You can get the mosquito repellant candles, burn out pretty fast though. Look for stagnant water. You can also complain to your City. I have a pond nearby that stunk and had stagnant water and they put in a pump that circulates the water so less mosquito larva.
