Got this from Thrifty Fun

Simple Mint Insect Repellant
I stopped using chemical sprays to get rid of bugs when I found that mint works just the same. It's very effective and super cheap. Here are a couple ways to use mint as an insect repellant.
Boil a bunch of mint leaves with a few orange peels in some water and let it sit over night. Strain the next day and mix with equal parts rubbing alcohol. Pour in spray bottle. This is my favorite easy-to-make, natural insect repellant.

Crush some dried mint leaves and put in little sachets in your kitchen cupboards. They will deter pantry moths. They also work against small rodents and ants. You can also just use mint teabags!

I wonder if growing mint indoors in a pot would have a similar outcome? I might try that this winter.

It would be worth a try. If nothing else you would have some fresh mint handy for cooking with or adding to tea. Smile
