Sandalwood for Noseeums and Mosquitoes

We winter over in Florida and I used to live there on an island. That is the worst in Florida for mosquitoes, as well as noseeums. Massive swarms in the summer! Use sandalwood incense and oils.


Find QUALITY, (not cheap) sandalwood oils and wear it. Even add a few drops in the final rinse of your laundry. Also burn quality sandalwood incense in home and outside on patio. These flying bugs do not like the scent at all. There is a brand of sandalwood long burning incense sold online. You can also grow lemongrass and use lemongrass incense and oils.

I also do buy Dollar Store incense and place them in amounts around the patio, in clay pots filled with sand and just fume the area when we sit outside. The stronger the scent, the better.

I have been trying to find quality sandalwood candles to see if they would help at all.

We have found Listerene works wonders. The generic brand is exactly the same thing. Put in a spray bottle full strength and spray where flies and mosquitoes gather; I spray when I think of it.


I spray around my plants, just not on them and DO spray on any chair seats, material type things on deck or porch, around back door, etc. It WORKS!
