Did you know mosquitoes are the deadliest animal on Earth?
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that every year, mosquitoes infect 200 million people with malaria and kill another 3 million. Every year. Tens of millions more suffer the debilitating and often fatal effects of other mosquito-borne diseases such as Encephalitis, West Nile Virus, Dengue Fever, Yellow Fever, and now Chikungunya and Zika Virus. Bug spray isn’t your only available defense against the onslaught of mosquitoes. As two lucky winners will discover, you can also use plants from Clovers Garden to help keep them at bay!
