Say bye to all that buzzing!

As soon as the weather warms up, we're rushing outside to get a taste of that summer sun—and every year, we nearly forget that swarms of mosquitoes are waiting to get a taste of us. Nothing ruins a backyard cookout, hike, or camping trip like those pesky pests. Without a proper line of defense and an arsenal of the best mosquito repellents, they might even drive you indoors.

Fortunately, experts have come up with all sorts of solutions to get rid of mosquitoes once and for all: planting dragonfly-attracting plants or other plants and herbs that repel mosquitoes, creating bug-resistant mesh pants that fit over your favorite pair of summer shorts, and of course all manner of repellents, including candles, sprays for both your body and yard, and more.
