Limited success: 1.Mosquitoes see movement more than an actual object and they see sharp contrasts of dark and light colors. Choose clothing that blends in with the environment. 2. Pyrethrins are made from the seed cases of the flower chrysanthemum and is a strong insect repellent . Try it. 3. Mosquitoes love the smell of dirty socks and the bacteria of sweat. Stay clean and cool. 4. Citronella oil has potential.
