If I had to pick one thing that really bothers me about summer it would be mosquitoes. They can literally ruin a beautiful summer night by attacking everyone in their path. Aside from staying indoors, there are several products available to keep those pesky mosquitoes at bay.

Garden Incense Sticks & Candles: An effective and aromatic blend of earth-friendly ingredients including citronella, rosemary and thyme.

Citronella Candles: Made using natural citronella essential oil. Contains a wind-proof wick and provides a long burn time.

Mosquito Wristbands: Non-toxic, all natural and deet-free wristbands infused with all-natural citronella oil. Available in adult and kid sizes.

Mosquito Dunks: Safe to use in fish habitats. Place in containerized standing water wherever it accumulates in places such as flower pots, bird baths, roof gutters, rain barrels, etc.

Herbs: Plant herbs such as citronella, basil, lemon balm and lavender near patios and walkways to naturally repel mosquitoes.
