    I tried the parakito bands and clips when we lived in FNQ and didn't find them at all effective.

    We did however notice reduction in a small courtyard play area when we planted citronella geranium, lemon grass, catnip and a couple of other plants which are meant to be repellents. They didn't disappear but definitely a reduction.

    Nope! I tried all the alternative products and didn't find anything effective. Mind you it was FNQ and the mozzies and midgies were overwhelming at certain times of year.

    All doors and windows are netted, no mosquito enter our house. In lawns, I use kodomo baby powder and that keeps pests away from my kids.
