HELP.. How to get rid of Mosquitoes safely? Lock Rss

Summer is back and so are the mosquitoes sitting here on the computer i got bitten 3 times near my elbow and i can see one just cruising around the room. Hope feeding on me is enough and wont bite my DS

My DS is 7 weeks old and sleeping in the same room as well as my 2 year old is there a safe way of killing them ?? the only thing i can think of is spray i got that spray that is made from plant but still not comfortable using it around kids or babies.

Does anyone know safe ways of dealing with mosquitoes?

Citronella Oil
Lemon Eucalyptus Oil
Cinnamon Oil
Castor Oil
Rosemary Oil
Lemongrass Oil
Cedar Oil
Peppermint Oil
Clove Oil
Geranium Oil
Possibly Oils from Verbena, Pennyroyal, Lavender, Pine, Cajeput, Basil, Thyme, Allspice, Soybean, and Garlic

I know when my grandparents were in Spain a few years ago, they said the place was filled with geranium plants, which apparently deterrs the mozzies....maybe plant a heap of them around your house?
