In Summer and Monsoon Mosquitoes cause concern.I use the Traditional methods to combat this.Heat 3-5 small pieces of Coal till aflame.Place in a longhandled Pan and sprinkle 5-7 pinches of Powdered Pine Resin and Carrom Seeds on it.Walk this Pan all over specially in all the nooks and crevices.
Fumigate the entire house with this Smoke every Evening at 6 p.m. or later and fan the Coals as this helps to keep them glowing and adds an even spread of the Smoke.Resin(Loban/Dhoop), Dried Margosa (Neem)Leaves , Oregano(Carrom Seeds) help to keep Mosquitoes away and add a fresh scent to the House

My Nanny used to apply a paste made from 100gms. Fresh Neem(Margosa)Leaves with a few drops of Lemon Juice added to it on my Hair Roots.It would be washed with Aritha or Soap Nut solution 10-15 minutes later .It would be repeated every 10-15 days.This stops Dandruff and keeps the Scalp healthy
Margosa (Neem) Trees and Leaves are widely available all over India all year round and are anti bacterial as well as a natural antiseptic.These are widely used in Home Remedies and Ayurveda in their medicinal capacity for treating a wide spectrum of various medical Problems.
A GREAT repellent is BOUNCE (in the orange box). It contains white oleander and mosquitoes HATE the smell. Tie one on you & you won’t be bothered by them. Wipe outside walls & surfaces like decks & cushion covers & you’ll never see them. Don’t use heavily perfumed shampoos, lotions, hairsprays or deodorants.They also LOVE dark colored clothes, so don't wear.

Skin Care and Bug Repellant In One - No Harsh Smell
I first used this product some 40+ years ago in Vietnam to repel bugs and discourage leaches. I learned of it through guys who had been in-country longer than I.
When I first wrote to my mom and told her I needed some Avon skin so Soft, she thought I had lost my mind. Later in the letter I told her what I wanted it for and she couldn't believe it - she had never heard if ssS being used as a bug repellent.
I've had some younger people curious why I use this product, and for me it does dual
duty as a mosquito repellent and it also keeps my skin hydrated. I am a diabetic and many of us really suffer from dry skin.
