Are There Natural Mosquito Repellents?

Asked AnsweredI have been having a real issue with mosquitoes this year. It seems that despite the mostly dry weather, t we are constantly getting bitten. I know that you have probably answered this before but is there some natural way to get rid of mosquitoes?

There are plants that repel mosquitoes, like citronella plants and chives. Garlic is also a natural detractor. Some tout using fabric softener( rubbing it on the skin) but it can cause skin irritation, much like bug repellent. You might try pouring a little dawn dish soap into a saucer. It sometimes attracts the mosquito and the weight of the soap traps them.
