  1.  Make your own Mosquito Repellent (Click Here for Directions).
  2. Burn Dry Coffee Grounds. The smoke and smell of burning coffee grounds keep mosquitoes running for the hills.
  3. Burn dried Rosemary on your BBQ Grill. Again, mosquitoes don’t like the smoke or the smell of burning Rosemary.
  4. They also don’t like the smell of burning Sage. So you can substitute Rosemary or Coffee Grounds for Sage.
  5. Dryer Sheets! The chemicals in Dryer Sheets repel mosquitoes so put a few of them in your pockets. Also, I should point out that if mosquitoes don’t like the chemicals in Dryer Sheets then maybe you shouldn’t either. Try these Dryer Balls for your own laundry to replace Dryer Sheets.
  6.  Eat Garlic! Garlic will change your body odor slightly and make it so mosquitoes won’t want anything to do with you. This does however take some prior planning.

So there you have it! Six easy, all natural, hacks to keep mosquitoes at bay.
