A lot of bugs hate lavender and they also hate teatree oil, so you might want to try some essential oils. Also what I found works well, is to cut a lemon in half and spike it with clover and set it all about, they seeem to hate that too. I hate skeeters, so I wish you the best of luck in getting rid of them.

I have always had good results by eating at least one clove of raw garlic a day. I spend a lot of time in the woods and with this handy natural method I am unpalatable to most of the blood eating critters. Mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, etc. all stay away. On top of that, garlic is a natural anti-oxidant, strips the "bad" cholesterol from your arteries and helps thin the blood a bit to help lower blood pressure a bit (just like aspirin). I REALLY hate dosing myself with toxic chemicals like DEET.
