Thanks for the input, everyone.
Our city will start spraying for mosquitos this week; unfortunately, that means they drive thru the alleys, which only tells the mosquitos to head for my back yard.
The biggest concentration of bugs in my yard is in the shade garden, under my neighbor's humongous maple tree. I don't imagine I can grow citronella geranium there.
I don't have standing water that I'm aware of. I check things like that because of West NIle virus and my husband's compromised immune system.
|I used to use one from Watkins. Not sure if you have a Watkins distributor there or not.
Also, anything with a high content of Deet will work great, like Deep Woods Off.
No Watkins distributor here; I've thought about the Deep Woods Off, but I'm afraid it will kill my beneficial iinsects and butterflies. At this point, tho, I can't even walk thru my garden without being eaten alive, so I guess maybe it's time to try it.
