This totally works. I've been doing this for the last two days and have caught like twenty of those dumb fruit flies. Which is gross when you think that they were in my house. Ickkk.

Natural Bug Spray. Here’s what you’ll need: essential oils (citronella and lemongrass are musts, I also like lavender or you could use tea tree oil or geranium oil for tick protection), 14 oz. bottle of witch hazel (available in grocery stores & pharmacies usually close to the rubbing alcohol), a spray bottle (or two–one for home and one for the diaper bag/car), a jar for mixing, and a funnel.

Making a mosquito trap from a 2 liter soda bottle and ingredients you probably have in your pantry......might have to try this.

Mosquito trap - No more mosquitos!! Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there. FLIES LOVE THIS!!! Have caught 1000's of flies!!

Colorful bracelets. You could also replace the rope and ribbons with parachute cord for safety bracelets.
