Candles and Coils
A sure way to ward off mosquitoes is by emitting smoke into the air around you. Citronella candles, mosquito coils, campfires and incense will work effectively, however they will only work in the area of the smoke. These products can rid an area of mosquitoes to a certain degree, but they won't prevent mosquitoes from coming around and they will not work effectively in strong winds. Natural oils such as lemongrass, citronella and eucalyptus oil can be worn to ward off mosquitoes, however if you choose this method, be sure to reapply every 10-15 minutes in order for the oils to work effectively. Avon Skin-So-Soft is a popular oil-based skin spray with no toxins which works effectively to prevent mosquito bites. Skin sprays, mosquito coils and Citronella products can be purchased online for anywhere between $3 and $25.
