Many millions of dollars are spent using/misusing dangerous and expensive POISONS to try to "control" mosquitoes all over the world. They simply do not work and they are contaminating the entire earth.
What can you do? Routinely put more and more POISON on your child and/or your yard or let get "eaten alive"? Not to mention the dangerous diseases that mosquitoes can carry to infect you and yours.
One simple solution is to sit in the breeze of a fan. Another is to make a safe mosquito repellant from lemongrass, clove oil, basil, oils of avocado, birch, mint, thyme, pine, rosemary, spearmint and/or yarrow to repel mosquitoes. Please see: http://www.getipm.com/thebestcontrol/chapter-23/Mosquitos-Part2.htm .
Let's just look at one such safe repellant, the yarrow plant, Achillea millefolium or Latin for "Achille's thousand leaves" it is also called "soldier's woundwort" - because yarrow can be used to heal wounds and chewing the fresh leaves will stop toothache. Yarrow can be burned to repel mosquitoes from the area, fresh yarrow can simply be rubbed on the skin and/or you can make a free yarrow solution by simply filling a pot with yarrow plants and then adding water. Bring to a boil and then remove from the heat and let steep for an hour and then strain. The remaining liquid can be sprayed on you, your children and pets to protect them from mosquitoes.
