Clear away any standing water if possible in buckets, pool covers, etc.
Mosquitoes hate garlic. You can use this to your advantage by rubbing a little onto your exposed skin, or eat it and it will permeate through your pores.
Citronella candles are effective and also can be rubbed on your skin
Vitamin B-1 (thiamine hydrochloride) is known to give off an odor through the skin that repels mosquitos and also gnats, no seeums and black flies. A 100 mg. tablet, taken once daily should be effective.
Plants such as marigolds, lavender, cinnamon, rosemary, catnip, and peppermint repel mosquitoes and can be planted in your garden. Centerpieces made of the same plants will also work and can be planted later.
Bats are natural predators of mosquitoes. Take advantage of this by building bat houses to encourage them to take up residence.
When sitting outside, place a large electric fan by you. Mosquitos are too weak to fly against the air current.
