I need some kind of mosquito repellent that I can use in a small back yard. I don’t want to spray, that’s just too much work for me. But if you have a liquid or granule that I can spread around as a repellent, I’d like to know if it works.

Mosquito repellent for the yard is available and will usually last 1-2 weeks depending on the local weather. The most common used is our MOSQUITO REPELLENT GRANULES. Simply sprinkle it out around the property edge to help keep them from foraging into your property. We have learned this product works best when applied to areas where they are not nesting or roosting. If the areas you want to repel mosquitoes from are really shady and moist, you’ll probably need to consider doing one of the control options listed in our MOSQUITO CONTROL ARTICLE. But if you have a small open area which is only attracts mosquitoes when people are present, the Repellent Granules should really help keep them away.


The mosquito repellent I’ve been using isn’t working anymore. Deet used to be good but for some reason, it doesn’t seem to stop these guys from landing on me and sucking some blood. Do¬† you have anything different I might try? I like to work in my organic garden without being attacked but this year is really bad and I need some relief.

Mosquito repellent comes in many forms. We have found the MOSQUITO 100% DEET works well as does the MOSQUITO CITRONELLA LOTION. We also have the MOSQUITO REPELLENT WITH SUNBLOCK option is good for when you expect to be out in direct sunlight where mosquitoes are active. This seems to be a good product for regions of the United States like the Southeast where Asian Tiger mosquitoes come out during the day.

Additionally, we have many mosquito repellents that can be used around the yard to help keep them off your property all of which can be seen in our MOSQUITO CONTROL ARTICLE. These mosquito repellents can offer some relief by chasing them away from your property before they ever arrive.
