We use Wondercide spray.  We spray it on our dog's feet everytime we go outside.  You can also spray it on your legs.  Google it.  We get it on Amazon.

 

It repels fleas and mosquitoes and it works well.  We don't use chemicals on our dog - no flea or heartworm meds.  So far, so good.

Where we are in SW FL mosquitoes are not much of a problem. The county sprays canals and such. Most pools including ours is screened in. Once in a while I might get bitten by a single bug when Im out doing yard work.

I am very allergic to m.bites. When I get bitten the bites swell up and turn red and I have the bites for about 10 days. Have a prescription and it works for the itching. When season comes I stay in period.

I love my pups!

I live in SE VA where it is hot and muggy in the summer and fall.  Mosquitoes thrive here.  We use 3 Dynatraps - one in the front yard and two outback with excellent luck.  HTH

They have appeared here this week. When I walk my dog, there is one place where they seem to congregate. I can count on getting bit. Guess I need to change where we are walking, but I'm not sure it would do much good.
