A cheap and effective natural way of catching mozzies is to get 2 litre plastic "pop" bottle and cut the top off so that it becomes a funnel that you invert on the bottom section. Cover the bottle with a black paper or card board tube so it's dark inside. Get some yeast (about a teaspoon full) and some sugar about 2 teaspoonfuls and mix these in the bottle with some warm water about a pint. Invert the top bit of the bottle (the funnel) and put in the open end of the bottle. Put this out in place that's not too breezy and watch the mozzies head for it! Check the contents by slipping the black tube up and you should be able to count the mozzies! Replace as necessary. Usually twice a day. Set up a few of these outside your cabin and the mozzies will head for this before they go below.
No poisons, no oils, not at all messy and totally natural.
Let me know how it goes!

Sulfur Tablets, repels mosquitoes, ticks and a host of other bugs. Also helps with rashes and Eczema.
Vic's vapor rub was one example she came up with !
Rub it all over and you'll have clear nasal passages for hrs trust me I done this for a few day's I could breath like a champion !
But it didn't deter the little beggars !
Also if yr at a grocery store you'll have all the folks with colds and blocked noses coming up to just sniff you !
I thought it strange at first but I got used to the closeness of folks !
I think she's going to try the eucalyptus, lemon and some other oils gawd only knows what I'll smell like and whom I'll attract at the grocery store !
I drink red wine and still get attacked..
