Listerine (the amber color) works great to keep skeeters away from your yard. Spray it on the grass, in the bushes, around doors, on lawn chairs and patio. let it sit for a half hour and no skeeters. We have been using this for two years now and I am still amazed at how well it works. The smell doesn't last, but lack of skeeters does. For us it worked for almost two days.
