I have heard that a paste made with baking soda and red Koolaid rubbed on exposed skin will keep the mosquitoes away and helps with the itch from bites you may have already gotten...

My wife is allergic to most bug sprays. We don't use anything and rarely get bit.

I think hard wired 120V... IDGAF if I have to hook a generator up to it.... I'm sick of being carried away the second I go outside.

Edit: Yep.. plug in.

3 hours in the garage and even with a shitload of bug spray I'm covered in mosquito bites. I love working with the doors open but I don't think I'm gonna be able to anymore

Use octenol attractant cartridges in it AND put it someplace all the little suckers can see it, and, AT LEAST 25 FEET AWAY FROM PEOPLE.

Lots of people plug it in right next to where they sit and then wonder why there are so many bugs. After one or two nights, there with be a significant ring of ash / fried bugs beneath it. :D

@curbdog17

You really need to look into lowering your water table. That should fix a lot of your mosquito problems.
