I found an article and was wondering if anyone had tried these plants or anything similar?

A couple of other ways to repel mosquitoes:

Make a thin lotion of powdered yellow sulfur and water and wipe it on exposed skin.

It'll repel skeeters the same way dusting your socks and cuffs with the dry powder will repel ticks.

I swear I'm not joking with this next one: Wear plaid shirts--the same kind OK Lumberjacks are always portrayed in. The geometrical pattern apparently screws up the mosquito's landing program.

Plain black and plain white, on the other hand, are about the worst colors you can wear.
