Avon has a product that naturally repels as well called Skin So Soft.

Doesn't kill, but it does help keep them from biting.

Good luck and let us know what worked best for you.

We fought them for years. Finally discovered Cutter Backyard Bug Control. It comes in about quart bottle that attaches to the end of a water hose. Just spray down the area around your camper and it keeps mosquitoes away for up to 7 days. We use it at home too. This stuff really works.

I didn't read all the responses but we spray our door screen with Aroma Paws all natural repellant. It is an excellent mosquito repellant and we use it on ourselves and our dogs. There aren't any harmful chemicals in it. The spray is the second item down.

AROMA PAWS: Natural Bug Repellant Shampoo, Spray and Soy Candle

Ingredients: Purified Water, Glycerin, Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Extracts of Apple Fruit, Lime Flower, Beet Root, Aloe Leaf, Chamomile Flower & Dandelion, Olive Oil & Sorbitol Surfactant, Citric Acid, & the Essential Oils of Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Lavender, Lemongrass & Clove.

For the ones that get inside the coach i pull out the vacuum cleaner and suck them up. At night if you turn on one light they will congregate around it and you can clean house.

Mosquito's are attracted by co2 AND herbivores. So just have your vegan friends over but put them at a different table.
AND sit next to a Marine (meat eaters and good protection from euphorian cognitivity).

Lived on a sailboat in the tropics for years. Grab a flash light, hand towel and go hunting! When they splatter hitting them with the towel use it to clean up. Not kidding!

Suck those suckers up! I think that's a great idea, if one has power...

I've been reading a book about Western explorers, and this post reminded me of an observation they made about the utility of tepees for housing in mosquito country. Evidently the doorway/open top creates a draft strong enough that bugs that come in the front door are just "vacuumed" right out again through the top!

This solution might take a bit more remodeling of the rig than the O.P.'s prepared to do, though...
