Just got a thermacell and tried it out this evening on the still air patio and was still approached and landed on by at least 6 Mosquitos.
Saw the propane fogger post with positive results. Anything else other than the DEET (which never fails) we use in the military? Which isn’t safe for children who may ingest it from skin to mouth contact. He loves to be outside and I want to encourage it as much as possible without having to suffer the consequences!
I don't know how well any of these work, but I've heard Avon's Skin So Soft, OR tying an unscented dryer sheet to your clothes somewhere helps drive skeeters off.
And around here, I'm known as 'bait.'
