You could say I basically live on swamp land. The mosquito and flying insects can get out of control on my property. If not treated I can walk outside and be bit within minutes. Not one or two bites but handfuls. Normally I buy mosquito repellent liquid that you attach to your garden hose. All you do is water your grass, house, or whatever you want with it. In my experience it works for about 2 weeks. Sometimes less if it rains hard for multiple days. I wonder if this chemical repellent is worth it. I spray close to my garden but not close enough to soak it. So when I tend to my garden I am eaten alive even when I am in long sleeve shirt, wearing a hat and jeans. I rather have this happen then ingest the nasty chemicals when I harvest.
What does everyone else use to control these pesky creatures?
