GARDENING: A Quick Mosquito Repellent For Body

Repel mosquitoes while gardening with quick, convenient insect repellent wipes.

How do I fight mosquitoes, and keep them from biting me? When I am outdoors, I have problems with all types of biting pests, so I use several types of repellent. This includes sprays, electronic devices, citronella candles and outdoor incense sticks, whatever I can find. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten any repellent plants this year.

One product I've found to be very useful is Repel Mosquito Repellent Wipes. They are so convenient to use without having to watch where on my body and how much I spray. Rather than using aerosol to spray my hand, and then apply to my face, ears and neck, I use the wipe to quickly apply the solution.

I have some OFF! Deep Woods Insect Repellent Dry, and though it's powdery, I have to take care when spraying it, because it can still make me cough and sneeze. The Cutter Skinsations Insect Repellent that I use sometimes is better, because it's a pump spray. I only use it for light, quick jobs though, or for when I sit out to enjoy nature. 

For gardening, weed-eating, brush-clearing,and other yard work that requires being at the mercy of West Nile and Zika virus mosquitoes, and other pests, wipes like Repel are best for me.

I hate that they have DEET, and I'd like to fight the insects through green methods, but I just don't know how. Some natural mixtures have short shelf lifes, so have to be prepared right before use, and I just don't have the time to do that whenever I need to be outdoors. I haven't had time to research if there is something green that would replace DEET either. I have a Pinterest board titled Die, Mosquito, Die!, where I pin anything that helps with the fight. 

So, I apologize for recommending a chemical to repel mosquitoes.  If you have any suggestions, please comment.
