Is there an easy way to get rid of mosquitoes. I cannot even sit in my patio. They are everywhere.

Citronella (probably spelled incorrectly) candles help a lot.. Get one of theose bug zappers. Also - spray on repellent helps, but I don't like to use it.

Is citronella non-organic? I have heard that eating garlic works - but there goes that idea you had of having a baby!

Put a bounce dryer sheet in your pocket. Rub it on your skin first.

Are you sure it's mosquitos? It's been a little cold for those buggers lately. I've seen loads of crane flys, though, which look like giant mosquitos that don't bite. A strong fan will keep crane flies away because they are rather clumsy fliers.
