    Mosquito Repellents

    Good herbs that repel mosquitoes include basil, eucalyptus, cloves,
    geranium, peppermint, rosemary, lemon balm (citronella), onions, garlic, and
    feverfew. lavender

    You can make your own repellent with essential oils with this recipe:

    Mosquito Repellent Oil

    10 drops essential oil (see list of herbs, above, for choices)

    2 tablespoons carrier oil

    Combine the ingredients in a glass jar; stir to blend. Dab a few drops on
    your skin or clothing.

    my neighbor told me to put a dryer sheet in your pocket to repel them. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.
