I would like to know how to make a repellent for mosquitoes.

I've never tried to make one, but the one we use is http://www.mosquitobarrier.com.
I know it is mainly garlic, but don't know if just putting garlic out there would work. And, yes, it does smell for a day, but then subsides and it really works. (08/05/2010)
I read here at ThriftyFun just lately a couple of people recommending a small drop of Lavender essential oil on each of your pulse points or even using Lavender body spray and you can buy the essential oil at you local health food store and the body spray at just about any local pharmacy or grocery store. I just gave it a try this past week (lavender body spray) and it greatly helped me! They come close but they aren't landing on me now ;-) (08/06/2010)
