    Mosquito Repellent for large area???

    Have roughly a 1500 sq foot patio/deck and half acre back yard. Any suggestions? I've found the Terminex Allclear Mister, the Independence Mosquito Magnet. I've seen neither in action...just looking on some shopping websites. Anyone have something good for large areas?

    Ya I use that stuff too but it seems to only last about a week or two. Found something called "Sentry". A repellent that covers 900 sq feet.

    I am not sure if Lowes or Home Depot carries them anymore but years ago I bought a machine called Mosquito Magnet"

    Runs on propane and it works like a friggin charm outside

    Takes a couple of days to build the barrier, but it truly does work

    I don't think they sell them anymore. I bought one a while back, and then after about a year you couldn't get the bait or the sticky stuff that went around the outside anymore.

    On edit: mine is a Coleman brand not a Mosquito Magnet.

    Permethrin, FTW.

    I have a backpack blower/sprayer that I use permethrin in about once a month to control bugs/flys/skeeters/ticks around the house in the summer. If its an insect, permethrin will kill it. (Works great for keeping cobwebs out of the eaves, too.)

    Thanks for the tip Travis Permethrin is the shit. Haven't seen a mosquito since and birds are falling from the sky.




    Just kidding about that last part.

    Just order a drought and the mosquitos will go away.

    This actually made laugh for real. Good deal. Glad I could actually help as opposed to the useless things I usually type on here.
