Rosemary is an herb that many of us are very familiar with and their woody scent is exactly what keeps mosquitoes as well as cabbage moths and carrot flies away.  They do best in hot and dry climates and thrive in containers, which may be ideal for areas with winters.  They can also be pruned into all sorts of shapes and sizes and make great borders or decorations.  While the pests stay away you can enjoy the herb’s scent and also use it to season your cooking.
