No matter what the gender, age, or ethnicity, all individuals will release four chemicals through the skin and respiratory system. Nonanal is one of these chemicals, which is the main reason why these nasty creatures targets human beings. The quantity of nonanal released will determine what the likelihood of being bitten by a mosquito is.
There are many sprays on the market today, but many will find them to be ineffective. However, do not fear. There is a much cheaper homemade version one can easily make.

For an all natural version, you will need:

  •  100 ml baby oil
  •  100 grams fresh garlic clove
  •  half a liter of rubbing alcohol

Place the garlic in a small bowl. Pour all the rubbing alcohol over it and leave it set for 4 days. Stir the mixture two times per day to see the best results. After 4 days, add in the baby oil.
Store this powerful homemade mosquito repellent in a bottle that has a twist cap. The repellant is very safe to use, but only a few drops should be used at at time. You can apply with a cotton ball on any areas where mosquitoes like to buzz around and bite you.
