We swear by using a mixture of 4 oz. witch hazel, 4 oz. water, and 20 to 30 drops of lemon eucalyptus oil. I live in FL next to a State Park which is basically a swamp; mosquitoes hover in clouds! I spray it on before my daily walks and come home bite free.

Ive heard from a coworker about a garlic Mosquito Barrier Spray, and the amazon reviews are also pretty good. Going to try it this year myself. Thats what its called, Mosquito Barrier and its about $70 bucks, give or take $5-10.

Justafan - Garlic anything does not work. Good grief don't spent $70 on that.
