As summer winds to a close, mosquitoes can still be a problem in parts of the United States. There are plenty of products on the market that promise to repel mosquitoes or to relieve the itch caused by their bite. Experts say there are safer ways to keep mosquitoes away without buying chemical solutions. Keeping your outdoor area free of standing water will help decrease the amount of mosquitoes near your house, as they will have no place to lay their eggs. Lay sand underneath moist decks, and if you have an ornamental pool, you can stock it with mosquito fish (top-feeding minnows). Set up a fan to create a wind effect, wind stops mosquitoes from biting. There are also devices available to purchase such as  LarvaSonic, bug zappers, ultrasonic mosquito repellents, citronella smoke, and home misting systems. Experts advise that if you know you will be outside for a long period, putting on a bug repellent with the ingredient Picaridin is a safe option. More here
