Early this summer I created a page on mosquito spray, etc,:

Studies have proven that Catnip plants are 10x's MORE effective than
cancer causing DEET. We have planted numerous catnip plants around the
border of our property and it has done wonders at keeping down the
Mosquito population.

This might be something you want to consider for next spring! For now,
you can make your own bug spray to keep them away from yourself & the

kids.
