Essential oils like citronella, lavender, rosemary,lemongrass,peppermint and lavender have the power to combat mosquitoes.The scents of these oils are very pleasing to us, but they repel mosquitoes.Spray a mixture containing one or more of these oils into the atmosphere and on your clothes and linen.

Mosquitos really are a pain when you have them in the house and make sleeping almost impossible . Here are a few tips that may help the problem : Plant marigolds, catnip and rosemary in your garden and around your house. These plants all have an odor that mosquitos supposedly do not like . If possible remove any sources of stagnant standing water from around your home as they are attracted to stagnant water and many will say that if you put a little eucalyptus oil on yourself that they will stay away from you because they don't like the smell . Other then that try to keep doors and windows closed so they are unable to get in and patch up any holes in your screens . Best of luck getting rid of them
