Is anyone else going crazy because of mosquitoes I can't walk outside without being swarmed! And here's the worse part--I am never bothered by mosquitoes. They like my husband, not me! So what is going on guys!
I am trying everything.
I use these lanterns that burn a candle and a little pad that I guess is soaked with off. The smoke is suppose to keep the mosquitoes away from you.
I just knew this would be the trick, garden incense sticks. Well, they smell wonderful if you like herbal scents, which I do, but not sure how good they are keeping mosquitoes away.
They are not cheap, so I don't burn them very often. The nice thing is that they burn for hours.
Jury is still out on these..
We keep the chiminea going since we heard mosquitoes do not like the smoke or smell of pinon wood. Un-huh...they are hanging out right by the chiminea enjoying the cozy fire!
I guess this is closet to the best thing I have tried. It's a Herbal Insect Repellent by Burt's Bees. Among lots of ingredients are: rosemary oil, lemongrass oil, clove oil, peppermint oil and citronella oil. You do have to re-apply it , but it smells good and seems to keep the pesky things away somewhat.
I keep a dunk in the pond, empty the birdbath everyday, and make sure there is no standing water. I don't know what to do, but I am declaring war!!
Anybody have a sure fire remedy?
