    Mosquitos hate garlic! This works: boil down a lot of garlic in oil. Farmers use castor, I used olive. Remove from stove and add a shot of vodka. Spray plants and around the yard or lanai. I even got creative and made a sachet and hung it, also soaked skewers and stuck them in the plants. Repels mosquitos and even kills the adults. Non-toxic to the plant and kids!
