32 Ways to Repel Mosquitoes

From Mosquito-Repelling Apps to Bug Rebutting Keychains

— August 2, 2014 — Lifestyle
On warm summer nights, we're looking for just about anything to help repel mosquitoes. This collection of innovations that help to effectively cut them out of the equation for you when outdoors is varied and consists of everything from apps to keep them at bay to organic sprays that won't have you smelling for days.

There are a plethora of different issues that can come about from a mosquito bite; from a simple annoyance, malaria and West Nile can be quickly spread. As you search for ways to repel mosquitoes, perhaps you'll find the upstream approach better and opt for a lantern that will ward them off before you even see them. If you're like myself and aren't really bothered with them to begin with, try a natural spray to repel mosquitoes that isn't packed with chemicals but will have you covered just in case.
