New product by the makers of skin so soft called Expedition. Comes in a pump spray or aerosol. The skeeters here in South Ga. wear leather jackets and carry chains. This stuff seems to work on them.

For me, Skin So Soft works so so. Deet works very well. But it smells and tastes bad.

I have tried a Mosquito Deleto and still have one in the back yard. Combination of heat, CO, and an attractant draws them into the fan to trap them. There is also a big sticky trap that catches everything from Mosquitos to spiders to miscellaneous bugs.

After all is said and done, I find that Cutter Mosquito Wipes work very well.

Around the picnic table and lawn chairs I use device called Therma-Cell. Works well, been using for almost 10 years and still use them. When everyone else is out in long pants and shirt sleeves, swatting and itching because of the bugs, we are out in our shorts and tank tops at our campsite.

Nothing! They don't bite me.

Now you could use skunk scent, but don't expect anyone else to come around either.

Nothing works here, so I call 911 requesting fire trucks. I don't know if it is the sirens that scares the varmints away, or the water cannons on the trucks that sprays the water under heavy pressure that does the trick. Last time I got bit I had a transfusion at hospital for new blood. Mosquitos got most of it out of me before I got to hospital.

X2 this is what we use and it works better than everything else. I use them while hunting also.

We use the Walmart brand of DEET, it is rated at 23%, while the name brand is rated at 24%; the misquitos don't even know 1% is missing And it is about 1/3 the cost of name brand. Every year at "skeeter-time" I go to Walmart and pick up several cans.
